Glossary: Dissipative Floor Material

A dissipative flooring material is a floor material with a resistance to ground above 1.0 x 10E6 and less than or equal to 1.0 x 10E9 ohms.

Note: For safety reasons, industry standards for telecommunication spaces, 9-1-1 mission-critical operations, and flight control towers require dissipative (as opposed to conductive) flooring materials, with electrical resistance measurements above 1.0 x 10E6.

See Motorola R56, ATIS-0600321, and FAA 019f.
