Johnson Endura Anti-Static Tiles – Specially designed to minimize electrostatic discharge hazards
Static charge is a constant source of problem in various industrial processes, in areas where highly sensitive electronic or computing equipment are in operation and in many areas of industries where inflammable chemicals or explosives are being used. Static electricity can lead to sparks that could cause fire hazards in areas like petrochemical industries, chemical plants, and bulk drug plants or in other fire prone areas. To provide a suitable flooring solution that works for static-sensitive spaces, Johnson Endura offers Anti-Static tile, a Johnson patented technology which caters to a very niche but highly important areas.
Tiles as you know is an insulator, which it needs to be in most cases. But in some special situations tiles need to function as a conductor. There is a lot of static electricity generated in areas across the electronic industry, PLC centers, petrochemical industry and chemical industries. This static electricity is required to dissipate through the floors otherwise it could result in an electrostatic discharge hazard.
Static electricity accumulates on the surface of any floor be it natural stone, ceramic tile or any other flooring material which could prove hazardous. This innovation from Johnson Endura removes the static electricity from the surface of the tiles and earths it, thus minimizing fire hazards. Apart from anti-static properties, the Johnson Endura Anti-Static Tile is highly abrasion resistant, has superior chemical durability with very high mechanical strength, features that ensure a safe and comfortable working space.
Endura Anti-Static Tile is mainly used in Server rooms, Computer Data Center rooms, PLC Panel rooms, PCB Manufacturing units, Laboratories handling sensitive equipment or chemicals, Petro chemical industries, Shell making factories, Ordnance factories and other Defence factories, Bulk Drug plants, Chemical and Fertilizer plants, etc.
Some of the key advantages of Endura Anti-Static tiles are mentioned below:
- Grounds Static Electricity
- Protects electronic devices from ESD hazards
- Lowers explosion and fire risks
- High abrasion resistance
- Superior chemical durability
- Very high mechanical strength
- Stable properties in vast range of temperatures
- Fire resistant
- Effectively grounded floors
Anti- static tiles is an important element of creating a safe space to avoid ESD hazards but it needs to be installed with conductive epoxy grout and Electrolytic Copper wire of approved quality to complete anti-static solution for your floors.
