Video: Why Choosing Static-Control Flooring Can Become a Nightmare

July 31, 2017

Choosing a static-control floor can be confusing, not least of all because conductivity is one of the most misunderstood aspects of ESD flooring.

This video is the teaser for the full video, Conductive Flooring Doesn’t Mean Antistatic. In that video, we take a humorous look at what can happen when buyers and specifiers rely too heavily on conductivity when choosing a static-control floor. In a brief lesson at the end of the video, we explain why low-charge generation—considering walking body voltage—is crucial for anyone hoping to prevent ESD damage in their workplace.
