Anti-static Flooring: The Basics
Dave Long’s seminar may be the best AIA presentation I’ve sat through over the past 10 years. I recommend it to any architect or engineer that may have projects with static-control flooring.

Every application for ESD flooring is different. Without detailed technical knowledge, architects can easily specify the wrong static-control floor.
The wrong floor will perform poorly and could leave sensitive electronics without adequate static protection.
Serve your clients better by learning how to specify the right static-control floor for their application.
In this workshop we'll discuss:
how static-control flooring works
why every application is different
industry standards and tests
How to choose the right floor for every application:
electronics manufacturing and handling
cleanrooms and labs
plus data centers, university labs, medical facilities, and more.
Technical background not required. This hands-on CEU eliminates confusion by breaking
down complex technical information into easily understood components.
All professionals involved in specifying flooring should know about the potential consequences of not specifying the right product and ensuring it is installed properly. Dave’s information can help us better protect our clients and avoid potential lawsuits.

Meet Dave Long
Dave is founder and CEO of StaticWorx, Inc., a U.S.-based supplier of static-control flooring products that protect electronic components from harm caused by electrostatic discharge (ESD). Under his leadership, StaticWorx has been recognized several times as one of the fastest-growing companies—in the Boston area by Boston Business Journal, and nationally by Inc. Magazine.
An educator, Dave has led ESD tutorials, trained technical service reps on ESD for companies like Perkin Elmer, taught FDA auditors how to evaluate static-control protocols in the medical device industry, and trained DOD contractors on best practices for static prevention. He’s even been hired by other static-control companies to provide technical training for their sales force.
Dave has written extensively about ESD and static control flooring, with his published articles appearing in a wide range of respected industry journals, including Conformity Magazine, Controlled Environments, the Construction Specifier, Emergency Number Professional, Compliance Engineering, In Compliance Magazine, and Data Center Journal, among others.
In his AIA workshops, Dave combines comprehensive technical knowledge with a practical understanding of how static-control materials perform in real-world environments. Using a hands-on approach, he teaches architects to solve complex problems in applications where static charges could harm electronics, damage mission-critical equipment, and pose safety risks.
Dave graduated from Boston College and lives with his family in Vermont.
With StaticWorx ESD flooring, you never have to choose between performance and aesthetics. Our beautiful, high quality ESD carpet tile, vinyl, EC rubber tile and sheet goods, and ESD epoxy floors are as beautiful as they are functional.
