Electrostatic discharge (ESD) is a problem that you can’t ignore. The scuff of a shoe, the scrape of a chair creates an electron imbalance and, although the resulting discharge may be so small that the human body can’t feel it, it can nevertheless have serious consequences. Some environments require specialist access flooring finishes which negate any of these issues.
In electronics manufacturing, in pharmaceuticals, healthcare, ordnance manufacture and storage, ESD incidents can often cause material, component or system failures, which may prove costly and perhaps even dangerous.
The Polyflor ESD range of access flooring covering has been specifically engineered to combat this problem at source, by facilitating a uniform flow of static electricity directly to a ground point. Problem solved.
The closed surface and high vinyl content make Polyflor ESD access flooring coverings easy and economical to maintain. So they’ll go on looking good and performing well for years, providing a long-term solution to the ESD problem.
Installation is obviously critical, but it can be carried out by trained Fieldmans staff, using industry accepted procedures and Polyflor approved adhesives.
It is important that the correct Polyflor access flooring product is selected to meet the specification required. For information and advice on all issues concerning static control flooring, installation techniques, and testing procedures, please contact our trained technical staff, who will be pleased to help you.
ESD – Static Dissipative
Polyflor Static Dissipative access flooring products are engineered for use where static control is required, but the resistance level of the floor does not need to be as low as that provided by a conductive floor.
These access flooring coverings are ideal for use in telecommunications installations, computer rooms, and healthcare facilities such as scanner rooms, X-ray suites and operating theatres, also suitable for use in electronics manufacturing.
ESD – Electrostatic Conductive
Polyflor Electrostatic Conductive products have been engineered to meet the latest international standards for ESD protection access flooring coverings.
Recommended applications include: electronics manufacturing–wafer fabrication, product assembly, inspection and storage; laboratories; clean rooms; and defence establishments.
Polyflor EC is also recommended for healthcare facilities where gases and/or electronic equipment are used during medical procedures – operating theatres, anaesthetising areas, intensive-care units and radiology departments.
