ESD flooring is required to protect most types of electronics parts, which are ultra-sensitive to static electricity.
FAQ: What is ESD Flooring?
Conductive veins, filaments or fibers in ESD floors provide an electrical connection that draws static electricity away from people/objects as they move across the floor. Dissipating static safely protects electronics from accidental damage due to electrostatic discharge (ESD) events. ESD floors are available in tiles and sheets in a range of materials, including carpet, vinyl, rubber, epoxy, and interlocking materials that can be installed directly over a problem subfloor.
