THE PROBLEM: Most static-control flooring specifications are drafted incorrectly, creating unnecessary safety risks and ineffective solutions.

THE SOLUTION: Learn How to Write the Right Specs at Our Seminar!

Understand anti-static flooring, including the difference between static-dissipative, static-conductive, and grounded flooring; and how it limits the risks of static discharge to sensitive electronics in applications ranging from electronics manufacturing, R&D, networked offices, 24/7/365 call centers, medical settings, cleanrooms, and more. Understand best practices and evidence-based design.


  • Learn how to responsibly write specs that meet industry standards (including ANSI/ESD S-20.20, AATCC134, NFPA99, LEED qualification) when selecting static-control flooring to ensure compliance.
  • Minimize the risk of electrostatic discharge through proper specification of static-control flooring based on the application and specific risks in a given environment.
  • Assess the installation environment by utilizing static- control international test methods and conventional industry measurement instruments.
  • Learn the critical difference between KV ratings and OHMS resistance.

What Architects have to say about the Staticworx Lunch and Learn

"Before I attended Dave Long's presentation, I wasn't too familiar with static-control flooring issues and industry standards. His seminar may be the best AIA presentation I've sat through over the past 10 years. I recommend it to any architect or engineer that may have projects with static-control flooring.
