How to Ground ESD Flooring for Static Control
Several acceptable methods are used to ground static control flooring depending on local codes, the job conditions and the personal preference of the contractor. The three most widely used procedures are described here.

ESD Vinyl Sheet Flooring
Can be installed over concrete, old VCT and access floors: Properties run through full thickness, Our ESD vinyl tile can be buffed and restored to a super high shine - regardless of abuse. Handles heavy loads - An attractive solution for labs, cleanrooms, factories and technical spaces. Conductive or static dissipative per ANSI/ESD S7.1, and meets ANSI/ESD S20.20-2007. Lifetime warranty.
The highest quality resilient flooring solution, Staticworx® Eclipse EC rubber meets all of the recommended parameters of ANSI/ESD S.20.20. Because it is also a natural antistatic material, it also exceeds the performance recommendations found in mission critical documents and guidelines like Motorola R56 and ATIS. The walking body voltage properties of Eclipse rubber tile are extremely low. Eclipse EC meets every qualification necessary for handling Class 0 devices. Additionally, rubber flooring is viewed by expertsas a highly desirable and ergonomic walking surface. It not only performs with grounded footwear, but is highly effective at preventing static in areas where special antistatic footwear is not or cannot be used-places such as 911 call centers, command centers, computer labs, MRI areas, Biomedical Facilities and flight towers.
Eclipse offers the best antistatic flooring solution over concrete, old VCT or laminated to raised access flooring panels.
- Lifetime Static Dissipative Warranty
- Can be installed without glue
Install over concrete, VCT, Access Floors, epoxy and other subfloors. Available as PosiTile® for installation over Tate access floor panels. Meets the latest grounding standards set by ANSI, FAA, Motorola, ATIS, and NFPA. Engineered for ESD-Protected Areas (EPAs) in the electronics manufacturing industry and mission-critical, end-user environments, 100% of yarn bundles are wrapped with Helix 44 denier dissipative fiber to provide a static-free workplace without the liability risks of conductive carpet. Eliminates the need for conductive grade carpet tile while still meeting all grounding standards. Shown Here
GroundWorx is a budget friendly alternative to thick multi-layer ESD epoxy coatings like HighBuild. This coating was specifically engineered for situations where a substantial investment in high end flooring might not be justified because the floor space may be temporary or redeployed for other usage in the future.
Specifying Static-free Floors
Specifying the right floor for sensitive environments requires not only knowledge of this phenomenon, but also the available products. by Dave Long
Over 70% of Static Free Floors Are Incorrectly Specified: Looking for an overview on static free flooring? This article by Dave Long provides a sound overview on grounding standards and the various issues you will encounter as you look for the correct solution. How to Specify Static-Free Floors addresses the process of selecting ESD floors that will be used in applications where personnel will handle electronic parts as well as the criteria for floors that will be used near energized equipment in mission critical environment like a data centers, call centers, labs and server room.
