Electrical charges can have catastrophic consequences in static sensitive environments such as those in Electronics, Chemical, even Pharmaceutical and Healthcare facilities. Anti-static flooring from Surface Solutions safeguards both sensitive electronic equipment and personnel from an electrostatic discharge (ESD). Anti-static flooring typically contains a conductive material that accumulates static electricity to drain or dissipate any potential static discharge and needs to be grounded or earthed.
In industries where electronic components or volatile chemicals areinvolved, static electricity can result in signifi cant damage, injury and financial loss. All active electronic components and equipment e.g. micro-chips, integrated circuits and machinery are sensitive to ESD events. Even when areas and people are equipped to handle such static-sensitive devices, inadvertent contact and damage can still occur.
