You walk across the carpet, touch something metal or electronic, and ZAP!
Static electricity is that shocking phenomenon that occurs when an electrical charge is transferred from one object to another. Technically, that ZAP! is a tiny version of lightning. Your hair might stand up; you jerk your hand back quickly, and everyone laughs. But if you work in electronics, solvent manufacturing, the military, or medical and pharmaceutical industries, static electricity is no laughing matter.
An errant electrical shock can spark a dangerous fire, damage electronics, and destroy sensitive data. Xtreme Engineered Floor Systems offers the latest in electrostatic discharge (ESD) flooring to protect your business.
Electrostatic discharge can cause a range of problems that negatively affect your business.
- Explosions when fuel or chemical gas, vapors, or dust is present
- Failure of static-sensitive electronics and integrated circuits
- Corruption or loss of data and technology
- Security and safety threats
