Anti-Static Warehouse Flooring For Your Business
When it comes to designing warehouse flooring for a business, we take the time to get it right. The team at Impact Flooring understand that every warehouse is different and therefore the chances are you’re going to need a unique solution that ticks every box you need it to. Often, this includes ensuring the warehouse flooring is anti-static.
Anti-static warehouse flooring works to prevent the presence of static electricity that some warehouse processes create. Static electricity can cause damage to products and may increase the risk of someone suffering an injury. Therefore, anti-static flooring is required by many warehouses.
Why Is Static Warehouse Flooring A Problem?
Though you may initially assume that there’s no reason to go to the effort of having anti-static flooring installed, this isn’t the case at all. In fact, static electricity can cause a number of problems for a working environment and preventing it wherever possible is advised.
Static electricity on warehouse flooring is usually caused by the installation solution used. Some insulating layers can cause dust to stick to electrically charged surfaces and this may lead to dust clouds or gases igniting. This is seen more commonly in warehouses that use some sort of electronic assembly or those that use computers, photographic film and printing. In short, any warehouse environment that uses a lot of electricity can have a lot of static electricity.
Anti-static flooring works by preventing the buildup of static electricity and therefore prevents the problems associated with it.
