The real cost of ESD flooring
The price of ESD flooring goes far beyond the sticker price and square footage. The variables include:

  • Installation – Depends on whether you do this yourself or hire an installer. Many companies choose our interlocking products because they can install the flooring themselves.
  • Downtime value – Will installing new flooring mean you have to shutdown for any length of time. The value of that time should be considering when pricing flooring products. An epoxy that requires two weeks downtime might not be a favorable price-wise as one of our interlocking products. Many of our clients have installed new flooring over existing flooring without having to stop production.
  • Ongoing maintenance – Will your ESD need more than regular maintenance to retain the static charge qualities? Some floors require more than others and that can add greatly to the cost of the flooring in manhours and cleaning supplies.
  • Worker comfort – You will not find this in the price of any flooring. Yet purchasing a comfortable surface leads to a reduction in work-related conditions (e.g. plantar fasciitis), leading to fewer sick days and worker’s comp claims, as well as improved retention and increased productivity.

In future enewsletters, we will cover other variables that must be in factored into the real cost of ESD flooring.
