ESD flooring is required to protect most types of electronics parts, which are ultra-sensitive to static electricity.
FAQ: Are conductive reducers and transitions necessary?
No, reducers occupy very little surface area. They are usually installed at the point where flooring transitions from standard static generating materials like carpet, vinyl and bare concrete to the grounded ESD surface. The 2″ wide reducer need not have any conductivity since the first full step on to the ESD floor will remove any charges generated from walking on standard flooring surfaces.
