Static Controlled ESD flooring



SelecTech, Inc., a manufacturer of innovative flooring products, has completed the installation of 5,000 sq. ft. of its FreeStyle ESD flooring at Cobham Integrated Electronic Solutions facility in Lansdale. The project was initiated and sold by SelecTech distributor Spartan Surfaces.

"The trend in electronics manufacturing is toward smaller devices, which are more sensitive to damage by static electricity. That puts a greater emphasis on having the proper footwear and ESD flooring to protect your product," said Thomas Ricciardelli, President of SelecTech, Inc. "Our FreeStyle ESD tiles have tested extremely well in mitigating static electricity in a manufacturing setting."

Cobham designs, develops and manufactures micro-electronics, antenna sub systems and motion control solutions for defense and security worldwide. Cobham also offers solutions for communication on land, at sea and in the air and space, serving defense, wireless/mobile and fixed broadband, X-ray imaging, medical, industrial and point of sale markets.

"Mitigating static electricity effects is a large benefit of our tiles. The other is our interlocking technology, which can eliminate or dramatically reduce downtime during installation," said Ricciardelli.

FreeStyle ESD tiles employ a patented glueless "zipper" interlocking system that enables the flooring to be installed over existing flooring with minimal subfloor preparation. There is no need for messy, toxic adhesive and down-time is reduced-often times without need to close off an area.

"In addition to the installation benefits, there are also numerous maintenance benefits," said a company spokesperson. "The tiles are made with a durable, attractive and easy to maintain surface. Plus, the interlocks are designed to allow the removal of a tile from the middle of a room. So, if a tile is ever damaged, it is easy to replace."

Made with 70% recycled materials and 100% recyclable, FreeStyle ESD meets CA 1350 Indoor Air Quality and is MAS Certified Green.

FreeStyle ESD is available in steel blue, off white, gray and tan.
