FAQ: Does static-dissipative tile need to be grounded?
All ESD tile must be grounded. Any floor that is not grounded cannot conduct electricity and cannot dissipate static charges. Floors that are not grounded cannot remove static from shoe soles or dissipate charges to ground and cannot protect electronic components from damage caused by random electrostatic discharge.
