Glossary: Static-control Flooring
A generic term used to describe any form of flooring designed to reduce static electricity on people. Static-control flooring is available in numerous forms including: carpet, carpet tile, vinyl tile, rubber tile or sheet flooring, and epoxy coatings.
A more specific description should be used when specifying static-protective flooring. A meaningful specification should always include electrical resistance in ohms and triboelectric performance (walking body voltage) measured in volts.
