FAQ: Why is ESD flooring required?

ESD flooring is required to protect most types of electronics’ parts, which are ultra-sensitive to static electricity. Electrostatic discharge events (ESD) cause data transfer disruption, lost or dropped calls, garbled GPS signals, blown circuits, staticky noise during concerts or in sound studios, product failure in the field, explosions and many other types of damage or destruction. ESD flooring protects electronics from accidental damage by drawing static charges away from people or objects in the workplace and safely transporting charges to ground.
