ShadowFX™ SDC - Vermont Slate Collection ESD Carpet Tiles

ESD carpet tiles example

Ideal Carpet for Electronics Manufacturing and
  24/7 Critical Environments

Designed to address the most stringent static control requirements
Built to withstand heavy traffic and abuse

Staticworx Vermont Slate carpet-tile collection provides the durability and high performance you expect from Staticworx floors in a design that transports you to the mountains of Vermont. Warm, monochromatic earth tones promote a peaceful environment, inspiring creativity and a sense of wellbeing and connectedness.

The rock-like etchings in our Vermont Slate carpet tiles flow seamlessly across the surface of the floor in a non-directional or monolithic installation. Merge-ability enables mixing dye lots and saves money by allowing you to add new or replace worn or damaged tiles without worrying about dye lot compatibility.

  • Mergeable design - eliminates worry about matching dye lots
  • No fade – solution-dyed yarn prevents fading
  • Non-directional install method – easy to install and replace
  • Durable – rated for high traffic
  • Superior static control performance – meets the most stringent ESD standards including ANSI/ESD S20.20 and IEC 61340-5-1:2016*
    • Lifetime warranty for static control.

Cost Effective

  • Non-directional design eliminates the hassle of matching patterns and dye batches, and hides wear and tear—the main cause of carpet tile replacement. This results in significant savings.
  • Installed with releasable adhesives. Releasable adhesives allow for easy removal of individual tiles, as opposed to having to remove entire rolls of broadloom carpet. This significantly reduces installation waste.
  • Glue-free option, using TacTiles, means carpet can be installed without disrupting critical 24/7 operations.


  • Can be installed non-directionally, making it ideal for raised access floors.
  • Mergeable dye lots allow you to replace tiles from future batches without concern for matching the original installation.
  • Slight variations are listed under Additional Specifications

Visually Appealing

  • Unique design patterns use biomimicry to simulate the random beauty of nature.
    • Promotes calming effect
  • Non-directional design and mergeable dye lots allow easy tile replacement and mask wear, providing long-lasting aesthetic appeal.

Sustainable, Durable, Reliable

  • Contains almost 50% recycled content and has low-emitting material.
  • May qualify for LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) credits.
  • 100% of yarn bundles are wrapped with Helix 44 denier static-control fiber.
  • Withstands over 100,000 cycles of Phillips roller caster chair test.
  • Fibers rated at < 2.0 Modification Ratio
  • Lifetime warranty for static control.
  • Made in America.

How to Qualify and Specify an ESD Floor

What is your application? If you're qualifying a floor, it matters. ESD flooring should always be qualified and specified based on ANSI/ASTM, ATIS, or other industry-specific standards.

Universal standards - based on application and environmental conditions - vary by industry. For electronics manufacturing and handling applications, where special ESD footwear is required, specifications should be based on ANSI/ESD S20.20-2014.

Specifications should reference test methods ANSI/ESD STM 7.1 and STM 97.2.

Standards for ESD flooring materials for electronics manufacturing and handling:

  • Resistance, measured in ohms, per STM 7.1:
    • < 1.0 x 109 ohms
  • Charge generation, measured in volts, per STM 97.2:
    • < 100 volts at peak 

Floors for end-user spaces where electrified (operational) equipment is in use, refer to standards specific to the industry – e.g. Motorola R56,  ATIS-0600321.2015for telecom and dispatcher spaces, FAA 019f for FAA flight towers, Army Corps of Engineers, Spec #: UFGS 09 62 38, for construction of military services, etc.

Standards for most end-user spaces:

  • Resistance, measured in ohms, per STM 7.1:
    • 1.0 X 106 to 1.0 X 109 
  • Charge generation, measured in volts, per STM 97.2:
    • < 500 volts (.5 kV)
