Static-dissipative flooring is used in facilities where people use sensitive electronic components to do their jobs and the facility relies on electronic equipment for their core mission. Examples include: PSAPs, critical call centers, financial institutions, networked government offices, media and IT rooms, and many other end-user spaces. Some companies that manufacture or handle electronic components, as well as some labs and cleanrooms use static-dissipative flooring, but many prefer floors measuring below 1.0 x 10E6.
