Interlocking ESD Floor Tiles / Anti Static Floor Tiles
As part of any good ESD safety program, you should absolutely consider the benefits of ESD Floor tiles or our other anti static flooring. ESD flooring can be an incredibly important component of a workplace that features large amounts of electrical equipment.
Our ESD floor tiles are a static dissipative or conductive ESD flooring solution what has been manufactured for use where there is a need for static prevention or protection to persons or components. We highly recommend using our ESD flooring in the following areas:
• Workshops equipped with digitally operated devices
• EPA (ESD Protected Area) in automotive or electronics industries
• Computer/server rooms
• Telephone exchanges
• Indoor use
The surface resistance of the tiles falls between 102 ohm/m2 and 1011 ohm/m2 (dependent on the type of tile you choose). Tiles may not interlock into different manufacturer tiles. Two styles of interlocks are available. Should you require a specific interlock shape, please specify when ordering.
To ensure you correctly maintain the properties of our ESD floors, we recommend you purchasing and installing our grounding kit and following the recommended schedule when cleaning the ESD floor with the Elimistat® ESD Floor Cleaner.

What are Anti Static Floor Tiles?
Here at Anti-Static ESD, we stock a wide range of different anti static products. With that being said, though, arguably the most popular item is our range of ESD floor tiles.
Anti static floor tiles are highly versatile pieces of equipment. They work to help earth out any stray electrostatic charges that could otherwise put your workers at risk of injury or discomfort. They are also highly effective for making sure that your business’ electrical equipment also remains protected in the event of an electrostatic shock.
Our range of anti static floor tiles offer a number of unique benefits over other types of floor tiles. As well as being interlocking, they are also incredibly easy to maneuver and install in a property. This, in turn, makes them practical for your business’ use.
How our Anti Static Floor Tiles Work
At this point, you might be wondering: how do anti static floor tiles work? Indeed, it can often be hard to picture a floor tile working to reduce the effects of electrostatic discharge which will often happen far higher up! The reason for the efficacy and reliability of anti static floor tiles and other types of ESD flooring, though, is in relation to the theories of conductivity.
In order to understand this, it is important to note the nature of electrostatic discharge. Electrostatic discharges are classed as being sudden and unexpected discharges of electricity. These electrical charges are transmitted directly between two charged objects. For example, this could be between a piece of equipment in the workplace and the electrically charged skin of your worker’s hand. There does not need to be a physical connection between these two charged objects, either; discharges can occur across a short distance, too, which can result in a visible spark (as in the case of lightning, which is an especially large form of electrostatic discharge).
When you use anti static ESD floor matting, you are working to disrupt this basic flow of electrical charge so that your workers do not have to suffer the consequences. ESD flooring is made from specialist static dissipative material that helps to dissipate the static charge, thereby rendering it harmless and safe.
The quality of anti static floor tiles can vary considerably. This quality variation is largely dependent upon the materials used for the development of the ESD conductive flooring.
Here at Anti-Static ESD, we use only the highest quality materials for all of our anti static ESD tiles. We offer a selection of ESD interlocking tiles which either come in 7mm thick (suitable for forklift traffic) or in anti fatigue ESD tiles or mat variant. Both of these designs are carefully chosen to provide an optimal level of anti static protection and ESD protection. Although we are able to supply ESD floor mats with static dissipative, our ESD tiles are typically provided with conductive resistance for faster and effective removal of static resistance, between 102 and 106 ohms per square meter of resistance.
How To Use Our ESD Tiles
If you think that your business could benefit from ESD tiles, our own range of anti static ESD interlocking tiles could be ideal. Evidently, the impressive levels of resistance that our tiles offer are easily able to help prevent the dangers of electrostatic discharge. This allows them to be highly effective at dissipating static charge. But how can your business make use of them?
Anti Static Vinyl Flooring
Our range of ESD interlocking floor tiles are excellent for use in areas where an easy to clean floor is required. As part of this, our anti static vinyl flooring makes an excellent choice for businesses which are incredibly busy. Our anti static vinyl flooring will protect your workers from the dangers of electrostatic discharge without compromising on the benefits that standard vinyl flooring can offer: durability, comfort underfoot, easy to clean and repair, and noise absorption. For more information on our anti static vinyl flooring, please get in touch with us.
Server Room Flooring
Server rooms need specific flooring, but it is also important to make sure that you don’t compromise on worker safety. Server rooms typically use a raised floor design and this needs a specific type of ESD flooring. After all, rarely do you get the same amount of electrical equipment in one place than in a data center. And so, in order to keep your workers and equipment safe and secure, your server room flooring needs to be up to the task! Luckily, our ESD tiles are perfect for finishing your server room perfectly.
Anyone who works with large amounts of computer technology needs to make sure they are safe from electrostatic discharge. Our range of ESD computer flooring could be the ideal solution! Easy to transport and install, all of our computer flooring and tiles are designed to suit your workplace perfectly. ESD safety without the hassle! Purchase your ESD conductive floor tiles today.
Why ESD Flooring is Right for your Business!
If your business deals with electrical products and equipment, then investing in ESD flooring could absolutely be a good step to take. ESD flooring can offer a huge number of benefits for you and your property; as such, being aware of the benefits that anti static flooring can provide could have a big impact on the safety of your workers and equipment.
Why Protecting Against Electrostatic Discharge is Important
Electrostatic discharge is a major issue in many industries. If your business deals specifically with electronical items at any point, you should make sure you have the right protection in place for your workers and equipment. Unfortunately, though, many businesses are not aware of just how significant a challenge electrostatic discharge can be!
Electrostatic discharges can be incredibly dangerous if not dissipated. They can cause major injury and suffering to workers, for one thing. As such, providing suitable ESD protection is important for keeping your workers safe, comfortable, and productive in the workplace.
Furthermore, it should also be considered that electrostatic discharges can also put your facilities and equipment at risk. Indeed, ESD can risk the safety of any nearby electronical devices and the like; this could represent a massive financial loss for your business.
How ESD Flooring Provides a Solution!
Electrostatic discharge can be dangerous at worst and incredibly costly at best. However, there are many products available on the market which are designed to help dissipate static discharges! Of these, one of the most practical and widely employed products is ESD flooring.
ESD flooring provides a huge number of benefits for companies looking to protect their workers and facilities. Not only is it incredibly easy to install but it is also effective at providing protection for you and your workers.
ESD flooring products are easy to install and cost effective. Once they are in place, they can continue providing protection for your workers for a long period of time, only needing minimal maintenance and cleaning to keep them functioning effectively! There really is no downside to investing in these nifty and simple solutions for what could otherwise be a costly and dangerous challenge!
How does Anti Static Flooring Work?
So, first things first – we need to know how ESD flooring works and how it could be relevant for your business. ESD flooring is actually pretty simple; it works by providing a conductive surface for workers and equipment to stand upon. This conductive material ensures that any static discharges are transferred away from the individual and grounded out, thereby providing protection.
The level of resistivity that an ESD product, such as an ESD mat or other such flooring solutions, can offer will be dependent on its level of resistivity. This can also be altered if the ESD flooring is not correctly looked after, which is why it is so important for owners of specialist antistatic products use the correct cleaning products to ensure the static dissipative nature is maintained and not compromised.
Why Maintenance of ESD Flooring is Important
If your business has invested in ESD flooring, then it is hugely important for you to ensure you are using the correct maintenance procedures. This is especially important in terms of cleaning the anti static flooring, as using the wrong type of cleaning product could actually reduce the resistivity of the antistatic products you are relying on for the safety of your workers and equipment!
The Elimistat® ESD Floor Cleaner has been designed for this exact purpose. This product has been designed with the following considerations in mind, to ensure that your ESD flooring remains effective and reliable:
- Deep cleaning properties – if your ESD flooring is dirty then this could reduce the efficacy of the mats in protecting the workers and equipment relying on them. As a result of this, the floor cleaner is designed to be deep cleaning and effective at dislodging debris and dirt.
- Damage protection – if your anti static flooring is damaged, this will naturally reduce its effectiveness in providing antistatic protection. As such, the ESD floor cleaner is designed to be free from harsh chemicals that could damage the flooring, in turn ensuring that the solution remains effective for as long as possible!
- No static build-up – some cleaners can cause static to build up, but our ESD cleaner has been designed specifically to prevent this.
