ESD flooring is required to protect most types of electronics parts, which are ultra-sensitive to static electricity.
FAQ: How does an ESD floor work?
ESD floors perform two distinct, equally important functions:
- Drain static from people and moving objects and transport charges to ground;
- Prevent static from building on people and objects as they move across the floor.
ESD floors transport electricity and must be grounded. ESD floors must also generate minimal static electricity (for this function, some ESD floors require the use of conductive footwear). Some ESD floors provide only temporary protection, requiring the application of ESD floor polish.
