Glossary: Electrical Ground

In electrical terms, ground is the safe point of discharge of unwanted static electricity. Ground represents “zero electrical potential.”

When something is grounded, it’s neutral; it has no charge. Attaching a conductive floor to ground ensures that static charges will be diverted to earth through the conductive flooring system. Typical grounds include: electrical conduit, building steel, copper bus bars and steel rods buried in the earth.

StaticWorx high-performance static-control floors protect electronic components, explosives, and high-speed computers from damage caused by static electricity. ESD flooring is part of a system. Choices should always be based on objective, researched evidence. When you partner with us, we look at all possible items that may need to integrate with the floor, and, focusing on your goals and objectives, help you find the right floor for your application.
