In recent times, Bondline has been able to help a huge worldwide company, who produce electronic devices for the oil and gas industry, improve their operations with an ESD floor installation. The company was referred to Bondline by one of their contacts who knew Bondline from a previous company they had worked for. The brief of the installation was to install a floor to create an ESD Protected Area within an area which was being used for office space with minimum amount of disruption and in as quick as time as possible.
John, who installed the floor on behalf of Bondline, offered the company various types of flooring options. Based on the client’s requirements, John suggested the Interlocking ESD Floor Tiles as this would require no preparation to the existing floor surface. After discussing flooring options with John, the client decided that ESD Interlocking Floor Tiles would be the most suitable flooring option for their solution.
For the installation process, the Interlocking ESD Floor Tiles were simply laid directly onto the company’s existing raised access floor with carpet tiles. With this process, no preparation was needed and the client didn’t have to pay extra for removing the carpet tiles. It also enabled a very quick installation so the client could start to use the area in a shorter period of time. The entire installation was completed in less than half a day so all objectives were met.
The installation has now provided the company with a dedicated ESD area where all static sensitive electronic manufacturing can take place. Previously, operators were working with devices on their office desks which was increasing the risk of static damage to components. The client is also happy that they can show their customers that their products are handled in a static safe environment. The client does get audited by their customers so this has helped to make them look more professional.
Overall, the customer was delighted with the installation. After a short period of time after the installation, John re-visited the site to test the floor to check to see whether it was in working order. Fortunately, it all tested perfectly within the IEC 61340-5-1 British Standards.
The customer was overall very satisfied with the outcome of the Interlocking ESD Floor Tile installation. The colour combination of the yellow edging and blue carpeting helps to better identify the Electrostatic Protected Area; plus even matching the Bondline branding colours.
