FAQ: Are the static-dissipative aspects of an ESD floor affected by transitions or reducers?

The static dissipative aspects of an ESD floor are not affected by the type of transitions, reducers and wall base used on a project. In the case of reducers, the standard operating procedure is the installation of the standard (non-ESD) versions of any of the following vinyl/rubber products:

  • Roppe
  • Johnsonite
  • Tarkett
  • VPI

If you or your client prefers a metal reducer it would likely be anodized aluminum which normally has no surface conductivity due to the anodization process.
