Static Controlled. Pride, Inc. Goes Solo with Purchase of StaticStop ESD Flooring
Roserville-- SelecTech, Inc., a leader in the manufacture of innovative flooring products with long-term value and immediate benefits, recently announced the purchase of 20,000 square feet of its StaticStop tile, FreeStyle ESD Plus, to Pride, Inc. for its electronics manufacturing facility in Roserville, California. The transaction was brokered by Restronics.
PRIDE Inc. is a non-profit organization dedicated to serving individuals living with intellectual disabilities in a home of their choosing. Part of that service entails work opportunities, which PRIDE Inc. offers at its electronics manufacturing facility. PRIDE Inc. purchased the FreeStyle ESD Plus tiles to minimize static electricity in the plant.
“As electronic devices become more powerful and smaller, it becomes even more critical to control the static electricity in the environment where those items are made,” said Thomas Ricciardelli, president of SelecTech, Inc., makers of StaticStop flooring products. “With Pride, Inc., the ESD component was important as was the ease of installation. With our patented interlocking system, Pride, Inc. installed their own flooring with no downtime and without disturbing their production schedule.”
StaticStop ESD tiles employ a patented glueless “zipper” interlocking system that enables the flooring to be installed over existing flooring with minimal subfloor preparation. There’s no need for messy, toxic adhesive and down-time is significantly reduced—often times without need to close off an area.
Made with 70 percent recycled materials and 100 percent recyclable, FreeStyle ESD meets CA 1350 Indoor Air Quality and is MAS Certified Green.
FreeStyle ESD is available in Steel Blue, Off White, Gray and Platinum. FreeStyle ESD is also available in PLUS version, which has a conductive urethane finish for superior maintainability and comes in Apollo, Blizzard, Oasis, and Asteroid colors.
