The selection process does't end with the answer to the question, "should I use static dissipative or conductive flooring?"
Fact: Over 70% of all ESD floors are specified improperly because the specifier did not understand the relationship between footwear, material composition and static charge generation.
Fact: Some ESD floors are not intended to inhibit static generation on people wearing ordinary footwear.
Fact: Some ESD flooring requires special ESD controlled footwear or grounded heel straps.
Fact: Conductive flooring shouldn't be installed in most end user mission critical environments.
