ESD flooring is required to protect most types of electronics parts, which are ultra-sensitive to static electricity.
FAQ: What is a suitable hospital flooring material?
Most healthcare facilities and labs use low-VOC vinyl or rubber flooring materials. Vinyl is less costly than rubber and can be buffed or waxed to a high-gloss shine. Rubber requires less maintenance than vinyl, provides superior ergonomics and generates very little static even on people wearing regular street shoes. While hospitals often use tile, cleanrooms and labs typically prefer the seamlessness of sheet goods.
