ESD flooring is required to protect most types of electronics parts, which are ultra-sensitive to static electricity.
FAQ: Do I have to use grounding strips?
Yes. The copper strips tie all elements of the ESD flooring installation—tile and adhesive or conductive floor coating—to the same electrical potential. The strips can be attached to ground through an electrical outlet, a dedicated grounding rod, or the metal superstructure of the building.
