Do you work with sensitive electronic equipment at your premises? Whether you operate a laboratory, computer suite or an electronics assembly area, it’s likely you’ll have an anti static flooring specification to fulfill when it’s time to upgrade your space.
That’s where our smart anti static flooring systems come in…
Electro-static discharge (ESD) refers to the rapid, spontaneous transfer of electrostatic charge induced by a high electrostatic field. Charge can build-up while simply walking across the floor of a processing environment. The scuff of a shoe or the scrape of a chair can create an electron imbalance and, while your workers will not feel it, it can cause costly material, component or even system failures.
Without flooring materials designed specifically to provide protection, there is the potential for this charge to cause irreversible damage to sensitive components. In fact, in extreme cases, where volatile chemicals, gases, powders or liquids are handled, this type of static can be an ignition source and present a fire risk. In this type of environment, reducing static is essential.
What’s The Difference Between Anti Static And ESD Flooring?
If you are looking for a flooring solution that removes static then it’s important you understand the difference between anti static and ESD flooring. Both types of flooring prevent a person from building up a charge as they walk across the floor so they do not receive a shock when they touch equipment that conducts electricity. However, the top layer of an anti static floor has a coating that dissipates static across its surface, while ESD flooring is a more robust solution that provides longer term results.
The Ecoflor Solution
Our anti static flooring systems radically reduce the risk of ESD.
Based on a smooth epoxy system, this 2-4mm solvent free, 3 component material has been developed to minimise static, while offering the high level of performance businesses demand from their flooring.
Ranging from 2mm to 9mm in thickness, our anti static, anti slip polyurethane flooring system is available in a broad range of styles and finishes, with features ready to protect your premises against ESD.
Widely used in pharmaceutical, industrial, medical and manufacturing facilities, our anti static flooring is smooth, hygienic, durable and easy to clean. These flooring systems can also be combined with dust-free grinding surface preparation which is a fantastic option for a broad range of commercial and industrial facilities.
Will it fit my facility?
Developed for in-situ application and fully compliant with BS 2050, our high quality anti static flooring options can be applied to a wide range of substrates and pre-existing surfaces including:
- Granolithic stone
