ESD Flooring Installation – Case Study

ESD flooring solutions to combat electrostatic electricity

The technological landscape is changing and businesses across a wide range of industries are placing an increasing amount of investment in electronic equipment and systems.

It’s crucial to understand that electronic equipment can cause a build up of ‘electrostatic electricity’ in an environment and that electronic devices are sensitive to static, which can then cause damage to the internal components and lead to costly failures. 

Flexi-Tile ESD flooring tiles present a cutting-edge solution that protects valuable electronic business assets by dissipating the discharge – Electrostatic Dissipative Floor Tiles!

Electrostatic electricity explained:

Flexi-Tile ESD floor tiles redirect electrical discharge through the integration of stainless steel microfibers within the floor tile structure. These microfibers act as conduits, allowing the safe dissipation of electric charges, and preventing the build-up of static electricity. Flexi-Tile ESD tiles meet the safety standard BS EN 61340-5-1-2010.
