Conductive and ESD Flooring Installation for Industrial Facilities
When you work with sensitive electronic equipment, flammable, or combustible materials, electrostatic discharge can cost your facility time and money, and may even be a health risk. Having the right type of flooring for electronic applications can make your facility safer and prevent damage from electrostatic discharge.
Any ESD flooring installation needs to meet the ANSI/ESD S20.20 standard and should be installed by a seasoned expert. This includes both flooring tiles and epoxy coatings.
What is ESD Flooring?
ESD flooring is a specialized type of flooring that is designed to protect electronic equipment from damage caused by this electrostatic discharge. While ESD tiles may be used in office spaces, industrial and warehouse spaces typically use special epoxy or urethane coatings applied over a concrete subfloor to create a conductive surface that dissipates electrostatic charges by sending them to a ground before they can cause damage to sensitive equipment.
The Benefits of Electrostatic Discharge Flooring
ESD flooring is an important part of any facility that manufactures or uses sensitive electronic equipment. By dissipating electrostatic charges, ESD flooring protects against damage to equipment and helps to ensure the quality and reliability of finished products. In addition, ESD flooring can help to reduce the risk of fires caused by static discharge.
ESD conductive flooring is also easy to clean and maintain, making it ideal for cleanroom applications.
