Anti-static Flooring: The Basics

Dave Long’s 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.

Lunch and Learn

Architects' Workshop

(an AIA-IDEC accredited course)

The Problem

Every application for ESD flooring is different. Without detailed technical knowledge, architects can easily specify the wrong static-control floor.

The Impact

The wrong floor will perform poorly and could leave sensitive electronics without adequate static protection.

The Answer

Serve your clients better by learning how to specify the right static-control floor for their application.

In this workshop we'll discuss:

how static-control flooring works

why every application is different

key
industry
terms

industry standards and tests

How to choose the right floor for every application:

electronics manufacturing and handling

Mission-critical Spaces

mission-critical spaces

9-1-1 call centers and FAA flight towers
Cleanroom

cleanrooms and labs

plus data centers, university labs, medical facilities, and more.

Technical background not required. This hands-on CEU eliminates confusion by breaking
down complex technical information into easily understood components.

All professionals involved in specifying flooring should know about the potential consequences of not specifying the right product and ensuring it is installed properly. Dave’s information can help us better protect our clients and avoid potential lawsuits.

We appreciate Dave taking the time to travel to Savannah to share his extensive technical knowledge of static control flooring and practical experiences. The hands on testing he showed our team was extremely beneficial. Dave’s presentation piqued a lot of interest and as our team members review the wealth of information on your web site they have come to realize there is a lot they did not know. . . I expect we will have additional questions in the future.

Dave is founder and CEO of StaticWorx, Inc., a U.S.-based supplier of static-control products that protect electronic components from harm caused by electrostatic discharge (ESD). Under his leadership, StaticWorx has grown from a tiny, one-person operation to a U.S.-based organization with offices in Vermont, Maryland, Florida and California, and has been recognized several times as one of the fastest-growing companies – in the Boston area by Boston Business Journal, and nationally by Inc. Magazine.

An educator, Dave has led ESD tutorials, trained technical service reps for companies like Perkin Elmer, taught FDA auditors how to evaluate static-control protocols in the medical device industry, worked with the Army Corps of Engineers, and trained DOD contractors on best practices for static prevention. He’s even been hired by other static-control companies to provide technical training for their sales force.

Dave has written extensively about ESD and static control flooring, with his published articles appearing in a wide range of respected industry journals, including Conformity MagazineControlled Environmentsthe Construction SpecifierEmergency Number ProfessionalCompliance EngineeringIn Compliance Magazine, and Data Center Journal, among others. 

In his AIA workshops, Dave combines comprehensive technical knowledge with a practical understanding of how static-control materials perform in real-world environments. Using a hands-on approach, he teaches architects to solve complex problems in applications where static charges could harm electronics, damage mission-critical equipment, and pose safety risks.

Dave graduated from Boston College and lives with his family in Vermont.
