ShadowFX Static-dissipative (SD)
Carpet Tile: Vermont Slate

Built to withstand heavy traffic and abuse and designed to address the most stringent static control requirements – making Vermont Slate ideal for any application from electronics manufacturing to labs to 24/7 critical environments

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.

No Vermont property is complete without a mud room.


Extreme changes in weather—with over 100 inches of snow each winter followed by a spring thaw that turns Vermont's 8000 miles of unpaved roads into sludge—present challenges to the entry of any home or place of business. Which is why entry floors in Vermont are so often covered in slate. Tough, durable and attractive, slate stands up to ice, snow and mud, while offering the inviting appeal of a Vermont farmhouse—much like our Vermont Slate carpet tile.


Like all StaticWorx ShadowFX™ carpet tile collections, our sustainable, aesthetically pleasing Vermont Slate carpet tile also meets the most stringent ESD standards—with electrical resistance in the static-dissipative range required for end-user spaces, making it the ideal choice for 24/7 critical environments.

ShadowFX Static-dissipative (SC) Carpet Tile Collections

Looking for easy installation of Staticworx ESD Carpet Tile over your bare access floor panels?


ShadowFX SDC with TacTiles® is your solution.


  • Installation economy - no adhesive required
  • Guaranteed to meet all ESD standards for any application
  • ShadowFX carpet tiles with dissipative backing are grounded upon contact with metal panels Carpet tiles are easily lifted and replaced

With its simple, subtle texture and diversity of color options, Shadow FX SDC Solids is a popular choice for many styles of interior. It’s also ideal for mixing and matching with other Shadow FX SDC carpet tiles, to create accents, inserts, borders or checkerboard effects – a really useful, versatile tool for designers.


p>After two or three years of use, carpet tiles exposed to chair casters and heavy traffic used to be prone to pile crush, making them look different from adjacent tiles. The main factor contributing to this problem was the pattern designs used in typical ESD carpet tile. All of these systems were either a solid pattern with slightly mottled colors or linear patterns with directional lines. Because carpet tiles appear seamless, like one large continuous floor, worn areas would stick out like a coffee stain on a white shirt.


The solution: Learning from nature.


Based on biomimicry - the study and imitation of nature’s best ideas to solve human problems – Staticworx ShadowFX static-dissipative (SD) carpet tiles mimic the organic design of nature. Tiles vary in patterns and colors within one style and colorway - all but eliminating the ability to observe pile crush or other forms of wear between tiles.


Because there’s no need to worry about matching dye lots, you need less attic stock and selective replacement is more effective. Replacement tiles are almost indistinguishable from older - original - tiles in the same installation.


Non-directional Installation for Less Installation Waste


ShadowFX SDC Patterns and Cubic Collections offer the added benefit of non-directional installation, meaning that tiles can be laid in any order or orientation. With no set pattern to maintain and no need to align tiles in a certain direction, there is significantly less installation waste. In fact, the average ShadowFX non-directional installation produces only 1.5% waste versus an average of 14% for other carpet styles. That means more of your floorcovering investment is on your floor, not in a dumpster.


And the best part, ShadowFX carpet tiles can be installed without glue, as a floating floor over any hard surface.


Simplicity Meets Style


Treez, our latest ShadowFX carpet tile collection, marries timeless style with the simplicity in nature. Tufted, textured loop construction adds dimension, creating a look as natural and stately as the bark on a tree. As appealing and comfortable in an uptown financial services space or high-tech lobby as in a workhorse application such as a data center or manufacturing facility.


In sophisticated tones with threads of complementary colors in varying widths, our Parks Series carpet tile puts an earthy twist on classic linear design. A low-profile face uses less material for a tailored, upscale aesthetic.


Like the stately summits of Vermont, our Peaks series carpet tile combines natural beauty with zen-like tranquility. Elegant in pattern and texture, with colorways in both warm and cool tones, our Peaks collection gives you a floor with dimension, functionality, and character.


Humans instinctively crave a connection to nature. Time spent in holistic places like Vermont provides a sense of comfort and wellbeing while promoting physical and mental health.


Inspired by the natural world, our ShadowFX Vermont Fields and Stone Carpet Tile Collection brings nature into the workspace, evoking feelings of serenity and refuge. A fusion of organic design and neutral color palette makes this dynamic collection as ideal for urban as for country or rural environments.


ShadowFX SDC Chenille Warp Carpet is a tufted patterned level tip-sheared pile carpet tile, with SD backing. The pile material is made from recycled solution-dyed nylon. The fundamental aesthetic of Chenille is stripes which have been interpreted in a bold and textural way without relying on heavy face weight. Shadow FX Chenille Warp is available in colorways. The tiles can be installed in a variety of ways including quarter-turn, ashlar, brick fashion and parquet, with the potential to provide an unconventional appearance.


Linear precision, softened by texture and offset shapes.


As its name suggests, Furrows II has a resilient patterned loop pile carpet, reflecting the linear regularity of ploughed fields. Its textured, structured loop pile creates the three-dimensional impression of an aerial view of a cultivated landscape.


Designed for heavy contract performance, ShadowFX Furrows II maintains its distinctive appearance even in high-traffic areas. Pile yarn and backing contain pre-consumer recycled material, minimizing environmental impact.


ShadowFX™ Planx offer a more expressive visual vocabulary.


Our 25cm x 1m Shadow FX ESD Planx bring new proportion and scale to carpet tile, giving you power to create fresh, exciting floor designs. The scale and directionality of Shadow FX ESD Planx creates floors that better reflect the geometry and flow of the surrounding space.


Planx or squares, our tiles all work together.


Use square tiles with contrasting Skinny Planks for large-scale tile patterns, provide wayfinding cues, or for work and activity zones. And this is just the beginning!


StaticWorx modular carpet tile and Planx work together in any combination, giving you a carpet tile design platform with unparalleled options.


A shape that’s better at hiding seams.


Want the benefits of carpet tile without the look of carpet tile? Use Shadow FX ESD Planx, same style and color, laid in an ashlar pattern. They’ll blend near seamlessly across the floor, giving you the benefits of modularity and the continuous look of broadloom.


A soft hard surface.


Love the look of wood plank flooring? Think luxury vinyl plank flooring is stunning? Patterns—like herringbone or ashlar—give ShadowFX Planx the visual appeal of other plank floors, with the patterning possibilities. You also get a floor covering that’s soft, quiet and much more economical than hard surfaces.
