Installing Transition Strips for ESD Floor Tiles
Recommended procedure for ElectraTile, VPI and ElectraLock
(all 3/8" or 3mm thick ESD tiles, hard surface to tile)
Transition strips are vinyl pieces
that bridge the height difference between an ESD floor tile and the
subfloor. The following strips are commonly used in doorways and on long runs
of ESD tiles placed on top of hard surfaces such as concrete, epoxy and,
standard VCT. They reduce tripping hazards, minimize the bump encountered
when rolling over them with pallet jacks (and carts) and provide a nice
clean finished appearance to the ESD floor. Normally static control
properties are not required for these strips. Should static control be a
requirement for your transition strips simply install the strip as shown in
the following directions and apply a thin coat ElectraShield to the top
a microfiber towel. Note: For best results roll the strip with a steel vinyl
roller after the strip has been installed. Should your transition require a
height difference of 2 mm or for bridging from carpet to ESD vinyl tiles or
ESD Carpeting please contact United.
Note for ElectraLock:
Remove teeth from the tiles by drawing a straight line on the tiles and
cutting thru the material with a razor blade knife. ElectraLock tiles cut
easily if they have been warmed with a hot air gun. ElectraLock may also be
cut using a guillotine tile cutter.
Insure that the substrate in front of the tiles is clean and dust free.
Place the 1" wide Contact Tape in front of the ESD tiles as shown.
Press or roll firmly in place and remove the top liner exposing the adhesive.
Roll the strip into the tape and press (or roll) firmly in place.
