Don't Choose Your Floor Until You
Understand The Role of Footwear

Why EclipseEC rubber flooring trumps other ESD resilient flooring options:

  1. Numerous independent studies have confirmed that EclipseEC inhibits static charge generation on people no matter what kind of footwear they have on their feet. This is a very big deal because personnel in mission-critical environments do not wear special static-free shoes; they wear ordinary footwear.

    Static control resilient floors like SD and EC vinyl and epoxy actually generate static on ordinary footwear. Epoxy and vinyl floors perform well when used in combination with static control footwear but not with street shoes. Mission critical personnel don’t wear special footwear, so why would you specify a floor that won’t prevent static under the conditions it needs to work?
  2.  
  3. Conductivity – aka Ohms resistance – is less important than charge generation. The ESD Association document ANSI/ESD S20.20, the cornerstone standard for static-control programs, no longer includes system resistance as a parameter. The newly revised standard requires qualifying floors based on charge generation measurements on people wearing the types of footwear that will be used in the space.
  4.  
  5. In an ASHRAE study for data center applications EclipseEC rubber flooring demonstrated the lowest charge generation properties of any ESD floor whether the tests were performed with or without static control footwear.
  6.  
  7. Eclipse rubber offers lifetime static-control performance without being overly conductive. With a typical resistance of 1.5 X 10E5 ohms, grounding properties fall into the resistance sweet spot. EC rubber drains charges at a controlled rate and yet still exceeds the gold standard minimum resistance parameters like the former NFPA 99.
  8.  
  9. PVC-free Eclipse rubber is GREENGUARD gold certified.

Most static control specifications over-emphasize whether a floor is “conductive” or “static dissipative.” Since ANSI/ESD S20.20, that sort of calculus is no longer relevant.
