What Is Anti Static Flooring?

By Lisa Hobbie Created: August, 2021

takes static electricity that builds up in a room and moves it through the floor - grounding it before it causes damaging reactions.

Anti static flooring is used in businesses, home offices, computer server rooms, and other areas where the creation of ESD, or electrostatic discharge, needs to be prevented. Static shock is typically not dangerous, but it can raise concern and provoke fires - and even explosions - if it is in excess. Anti static flooring keeps ESD at bay.
