ESD flooring is required to protect most types of electronics parts, which are ultra-sensitive to static electricity.
FAQ: What is ESD-safe flooring?
ESD-safe floors protect electronics by drawing static away from people or objects, transporting charges to ground. They also prevent static generation. On a regular floor, people and objects gather charges as they move on its surface. If a charged person or object touches an electronic component, the sudden transfer of electricity could damage or destroy its internal circuitry. ESD-safe flooring draws static away from people and objects and transports charges to ground, protecting electronics from damage due to random electrostatic discharge (ESD) events.
