  1. Anti-Static Epoxy Floors (ESD Resistant Floors) – Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) can be extremely dangerous in many work environments. This flooring solution has been utilized in healthcare facilities, electronic, chemical, and pharmaceutical manufacturing facilities. It is recommended for use in areas that contain flammable gases or liquids and are at risk of combustible dust buildup. This flooring contains anti-static properties to reduce static hazards. This flooring system typically contains a conductive material that accumulates static electricity to drain, ground, or dissipate any potential discharge. 
  1. Epoxy Flake Floors – Flake floor systems are made when colored flakes are placed within the epoxy to create a vibrant, multi-hue, seamless, resilient surface. The aesthetically pleasing effect slightly roughs the surface to reduce slips and falls. The flakes are available in an endless variety of colors, styles, textures, and sizes that can be mixed into the combination of your choice.
