Difference Between Low kv vs. ESD Carpet
Staticworx ESD Carpet conductive fibers are woven around the carpet weaveIn typical "low KV" computer-grade carpet, the antistatic bi-component is insulated inside the yarn and lacks contact points, compromising performance.
Staticworx® ESD Carpet Helix Fiber® conductive fibers are woven into the yarn bundle, creating at least 100 contact points per square inch. These provide a fast path to ground, quickly and effectively removing static charges. Staticworx ESD Carpet Tiles are available in many colors.
Staticworx Carpet Tile characteristics:
- General information and color options
- Engineered to withstand heavy use
- Permanent ESD performance
- Meets ANSI/ESD S20.20
- Excellent sound absorption
- Resists pile crush in higher traffic areas
Our carpet is designed to handle the stress of foot and chair traffic as well as traffic from pallete jacks and forklifts. The conductive Helix Fibers provide excellent electrical content with conductive castors and drag chains on carts and chairs.
The electrical properties of our ESD carpet tile can be verified anytime using a simple ohm meter.
