The T-Tooth shape of the interlocking tile allows static electricity to pass through each tile. The tiles are loose laid. No adhesive is required. It is a heavy duty ESD industrial flooring that may be installed over concrete or over any structurally sound and level resilient flooring. These products are designed for electronics manufacturing facilities, FAA super-sensitive control tower installations, explosives manufacturing or handling, or medical areas that require conductive flooring. ESD conductive loose-lay tiles are ideal for use over access floors. Conductive flooring is not a consumer flooring and requires heel straps with 1 MΩ resistors for user protection. The 3mm (.12” gauge) tiles are satisfactory for office chair casters or carts with < 200 kg (< 440 lb.) loads. Installations are portable, product may be picked up and re-installed in another location. Not recommended for use under fork lift traffic. Tile Size: 48 cm x 48 cm - Coverage Area per tile: 2.5 sqft
Meets ANSI/ESD97.1 (<1.0E06) RTG for electronics manufacturing facilities and FAA ultra-sensitive areas
Meets ANSI/ESD 97.2 (<25V) Resistance in Combination with a Person
Sub-floors must be structurally sound and level. They can be installed over concrete, wood, metal, epoxy, terrazzo or old VCT or asbestos tile. Grout lines of ceramic tile should be leveled (to avoid telegraphing). Products and building shall be acclimatized to a temperature of at least 68°F 24 hours prior to installation. To accommodate thermal expansion, a 12mm (.5”) expansion space shall be provided away from walls for any approx. 50m2 (500 sf) area. (Similar to the precautions taken when installing laminate floors). Tiles can be cut to size with a utility knife, circular, or jig saw. Tiles should be connected using a non-marking rubber mallet. Siga Circuit 7485-4025 conductive double sided adhesive tape should placed along one side of the installation to secure copper tape (at multiple points) to the back of that row of tiles. The copper tape (# 4000-1350) is then used for grounding. Grounding should be carried out according to local codes.
Maintain with neutral non-film forming detergent. Please note that conductive waxes or dressings are not recommended for non-absorbent flooring as these product may build up and become insulating if soil coats such dressings. Do not wax.
Follow the detailed maintenance instructions for conductive resilient Euro-Flex™.
Products are warranted for ONE YEAR if installed in strict adherence to factory specifications on approved sub-floors and by trained personnel. Products are warranted for FIVE YEARS against non-conformance to technical specifications or loss of conductive properties under normal conditions of use and with adherence to ESD maintenance instructions. Warranties are limited to replacing: or at seller’s option, repairing products if notice of defect is given in writing and if TSC’s examination shows that the products have failed under the terms and limitations of this limited warranty. No responsibility for the cost or removing, re-installing or freight can be assumed under this warranty.
