Dell manufacturing facility with ResinDek ESD flooring.


ResinDek ESD is designed to exceed industry requirements for static controlled flooring, shelving and work surfaces. ESD-control programs with ResinDek ESD provides protection throughout the manufacturing, transportation and storage of sensitive devices.

ESD losses can result in any of the following:

  • Lost time
  • Connection down-time
  • Data loss
  • Shocks to personnel
  • Systems upset due to reboots
  • Equipment damage

Past industry studies have indicated that 30% of all electronic failures can be attributed to electrostatic damage. Vulnerability is increasing as RFID technology and smaller electronic devices emerge.

When the world's #1 direct-sale computer supplier built their 527,000 sq. ft. manufacturing facility in North Carolina, they selected ResinDek ESD. The flooring was further enhanced by installing the patented Invisi-Loc® underside fastening system, which hides unsightly fasteners. Invisi-Loc is an underside fastening system that secures panels underneath rather than on top to provide a smooth, easy-to-clean surface.

ResinDek ESD panels have been extensively tested by the testing firm of Stephen Halperin & Associates and have been found to be in compliance with the following ANSI/ESD Association Specifications:

  • ANSI/ESD S7.1 - Resistive Characterization of Materials–Floor Materials.
  • ANSI/ESD S20.20 - Protection of Electrical and Electronic Parts, Assemblies and Equipment.
  • ANSI/ESD STM97.1 - Floor Materials and Footwear–Resistance Measurement in Combination with a Person.

Testing Results are Summarized as Follows:

  • Average point-to-point resistance = 6.6 x 106 ohms
  • Average point-to-ground resistance = 7.8 x 106 ohms
  • ResinDek ESD mezzanine floor panels generated less than 10 volts with static controlled footwear, and experienced a rapid voltage decay from 5,000 volts to less than 50 volts in under .50 seconds
