Transforming Technologies ESD Interlocking Tile Floor Mats: Cost-Effective Comfort & ESD Protection

Is this a typical scenario in your work area? Workers required to stand for long periods of time. ESD-sensitive items that need to be transported and protected in that work area. Transforming Technologies has combined their expertise in ESD with a high-quality floor mat to create their ESD Interlocking Tile PVC Floor Mats.


These PVC tiles were designed as an ergonomic flooring solution for use in the harsh conditions/heavy loads found in industrial environments and to provide comfort for workers who are on their feet all day. Transforming Technologies' Interlocking Floor Mats were manufactured to act as a spring through the use of their unique under structure called "compression columns." When weight is applied, this "spring" counters the negative effects of impact or prolonged standing. This technology is based on a proven ergonomic concept that increases user comfort.

ESD Safety

The other important feature of these floor tiles is their ESD properties. Manufactured to meet or exceed the standards of ANSI ESD-S20.20 and ESD 4.1, Transforming Technologies' ESD Interlocking Tiles have a surface resistivity between two points (RTT) of 1.0 x 106 to 5.0 x 108 ohms, which is the ideal dissipative range. When used with a common ESD control item (such as wrist straps, grounding cords, and footwear), these mats will safely dissipate or neutralize ESD charges.

Easy Installation & Cleaning

Because of the interlocking design of the tiles, installing and configuring a floor is relatively easy. The main floor section can be surrounded by black or high-visibility yellow, non-ESD ramp edging to provide a safe transition to the ESD area. A grounding plate and other wires or cables can be installed underneath the tile flooring. A typical cleaning regimen, sweeping, vacuuming, washing (with a mixture of 30% distilled water and 70% isopropyl alcohol, sprayed on and wiped with a clean cotton cloth), is appropriate to remove dirt or debris.
