Conductive Flooring (background)
The term conductive flooring, also known as static conductive flooring, is often confused with static dissipative. It’s primary industrial application, includes flammable storage areas, explosives storage, munitions, propellants, etc. In general, conductive flooring should not be considered as a superior resistance range versus static dissipative range, unless you are using it for these specific applications, or you need to meet one of the following specifications; NFPA-99 DOD 4145.26-M
Electrical resistance range
Resistance to ground of a conductive floor is defined as < 1.0 x 106 (1 million) ohms measured per ANSI/ESD 7.1 Conductive flooring must also meet all three recommended electrical parameters of ANSI/ESD S20.20-2007. note: Static conductive flooring is highly conductive, therefore, for safety concerns, should never be used near /under high voltage, energized equipment. Always consult industry standards as well as local building and safety codes before installing conductive flooring. Depending on the application, ground fault interuptors may be required, in areas with conductive flooring.
EPF’s conductive flooring is in thicknesses ranging from 30 mils, up to 1/4 inch, depending on the application. Substrate condition, traffic conditions and other considerations shall affect the required thickness necessary.
Systems are available in a range of attractive colors.
