ESD floors do not meet ANSI/ESD S20.20. Because S20.20 is not a specification. Learn more about this process document and the standard test methods it cites.
FAQ: Can I mix non-ESD tiles with ESD tiles?
No. Only materials with a resistance below 1 x 10E9 can be grounded. Regular floor tiles are insulative—meaning they do not promote the flow of electricity—and cannot be grounded.
If regular tiles were mixed with ESD tiles, it would be impossible to know which were grounded and which were not. While the floor might work in some spots, it won’t get rid of static in others.
