Electrostatic dissipative (ESD) flooring is imperative to industries where expensive, sensitive equipment can be damaged from an electrostatic discharge.
Electrostatic discharge and anti-static resin flooring
Remmers ESD resin flooring systems address all concerns and meet the ESD industry standards.
The industry demands the combination of conductive and conducting floor areas, with slip resistance, chemical resistance and mechanical load bearing attributes all play an important role within the resin floor.
Once installed, an ESD resin flooring system can help create an electrostatic protected area in which to work safely in. When married with other ESD preventative strategies – e.g. appropriate footwear – a seamless resin floor can provide the necessary static reduction required to protect valuable assets.
Industry Risks without ESD resin flooring
Personnel working and walking on a floor constantly increases the risk of static charge and the possibility of stray electrical sparks occurring.
For example, in spaces where flammable goods are present, a static charge can cause a dangerous ignition risk; therefore every preventative measure is vital.
Similarly in areas with small, delicate electrical devices, such as server rooms or production facilities, these stray electrical sparks can cause permanent technological damage, which can be very costly.
Anti static vinyl flooring VS ESD resin flooring
Anti-static vinyl, rubber or other flooring and tiles are common solutions when choosing to remove static charge from an environment.
However in spaces with such vulnerable equipment and goods, it’s better to opt for a floor finish which will stand the test of time within demanding environments.
The longevity of a resin floor is never in question when compared to vinyl. With excellent durability and a seamless finish, resin out-performs vinyl, rubber and other flooring materials every time. Unlike substandard flooring, resin isn’t prone to staining, lifting or curling, and will not deteriorate from water or chemicals.
