Electrostatic discharge (ESD) is a problem that can't be ignored.

The scuff of a shoe or scraping a chair on a floor could create an electron imbalance. Although the resulting discharge may be so small that the human body cannot feel it, it can nevertheless have serious consequences.

In areas such as the manufacturing of electronics, pharmaceuticals, healthcare and ordnance, or in certain storage areas, ESD incidents may cause material, component or system failures, which could prove costly and perhaps even dangerous. 

The infographic will help you to quickly understand the importance of ESD flooring, when to insist on it and a few key points to remember when installing this kind of floor covering.
