StaticWorx helps government clients solve problems caused by electrostatic discharge (ESD). In a government facility, ESD events can disrupt communications, corrupt data and cause electronic systems to fail. StaticWorx ESD flooring and chair materials prevent static from accumulating as people walk and from building on chairs, equipment and mobile workstations.
ESD flooring and chairs are technical products. To perform properly they must meet standards that are specific to the industry and application. It’s our job to help you select the right ESD products for your application. Known for our technical expertise, we are widely published in industry journals. And we collaborated with The Army Corp of Engineers in creating the UNIFIED FACILITIES GUIDE SPECIFICATIONS UFGS-09 65 36 (November 2010) for Static Control Resilient Flooring including Dissipative and Conductive Vinyl Tile USACE / NAVFAC /AFCESA / NASAC.
Our ESD carpet, vinyl, epoxy, and coatings are 100% made in USA and can help you meet your Buy America initiatives.
All StaticWorx conductive and antistatic products meet industry standards for resistance and charge generation and come with a lifetime warranty for static control.

The Pitfalls of ESD Flooring Selection: How to Avoid ESD Flooring Failure
Three fundamental mistakes account for a majority of ESD flooring failures: selecting the wrong floor for the application: failure to consider total cost of ownership; failing to test the floor after it’s been installed. Avoiding these mistakes helps ensure success. This first of a two-part series on avoiding ESD flooring failures explains why it’s important to select a floor based on the specific application and details the primary considerations that should be taken into account: assessing the type of footwear people will wear in the space and considering goals and objectives, including how the space will be used.
Installing ESD Flooring: Avoiding Pitfalls
The cost of flooring materials is only part of the total cost of ownership. To calculate the long-term cost of owning a floor, consider installation, maintenance, repairs, and downtime required for maintenance and repair. Aesthetics are another consideration. In this podcast, Dave and Rick describe scenarios that occur when people base flooring decisions solely on the cost of the material. Dave also explains why it’s crucial to test an ESD floor immediately after it’s been installed.
