How can electrostatic charge be avoided?
Static charges from people can cause electrostatic discharge when they meet metal. The presence of static charges on people is a totally normal phenomenon. If these charges do not escape from the body before reaching a certain level, that person can receive an "electric shock" by touching metal objects. Some EGGER laminate floors guarantee the static load of a person UP <2 KV and comply with the requirements of the EN 1815 standard (verification of electrostatic properties).
What is abrasion?
Abrasion is the wear of the top layer of the soil. When the abrasion layer wears out completely, the decorative layer is affected and destroyed. The abrasion resistance of laminate floors is classified by classes from AC1 to AC5 according to EN 13329. EGGER laminate floors have an abrasion resistance of class AC3 to AC5.
Are laminate floors conductive?
Can they be used, for example, in server rooms and / or operating rooms? Conductive floors are necessary whenever rooms have special requirements. These include, for example, computer and control centers, operating rooms, intensive care units and explosive zones. In these cases, the special floors are installed by a skilled electrician, who connects them to the building's potential equalization system (grounding). Due to the physical properties of wood-derived materials, bypass-capable laminate flooring cannot be installed.
