ESD Flooring Options for Raised Access Floors

ESD Carpet Access Flooring

In the networked office, people, equipment and furniture are constantly being moved. That means moving access floor panels and carpet tiles. This can be a time consuming, labor intensive process.


Static Dissipative Flooring Options for Raised Access Floors

Staticworx produces several 24 inch by 24 inch options for any raised access flooring installation. Staticworx Flooring can be laminated at the factory or applied in the field. Staticworx recommends Irvine Access Floors for laminating Staticworx ESD flooring finishes to any raised flooring panel.


Controlled Dissipation - Ease of Glue-free Installation

Staticworx Carpet tiles are engineered to permit fast and easy under floor access below any raised access floor panels. All of our carpet tiles measure in the high performance static dissipative conductivity range so they can be used effectively in any application from electronics assembly to computer rooms, schools and call centers. The SD range permits controlled dissipation of static without exposing your personnel to the rapid uncontrolled movement of electricity associated with conductive flooring. Offering maximum flexibility in the office environment, without the use of adhesives, our carpet can be installed using our TacTiles® installation pads.

What is an access floor?

Define:access floor-- A raised floor (also raised flooring) is a type of floor used in office buildings (such as IT data centers) with a high requirement for servicing to carry cables, wiring, electrical supply, and sometimes air conditioning or chilled water pipes. Additional structural support and lighting are often provided when a floor is raised enough for a person to crawl or even walk beneath.

This type of floor consists of a gridded metal framework or understructure of adjustable-height legs (called "pedestals") that provide support for individual floor panels, which are usually 2×2 feet or 60×60cm in size. The height of the legs/pedestals is dictated by the volume of cables and other services provided beneath, but typically arranged for a clearance of at least six inches or 15cm.

The panels are normally made of steel-clad particleboard or a steel panel with a cementitious internal core. There are a variety of flooring finishes to suit the application such as carpets, high-pressure laminates, marble, stone, and antistatic finishes for use in computer rooms and laboratories.
