Electrical properties of floor coverings

The static electrical propensity of floor coverings and the electrical resistances are safety-relevant characteristics. The requirements for this are defined in the respective product standards as well as in the harmonised standard for floor coverings (EN 14041). The tests are carried out in our electrostatic laboratory with a test climate of (23±2) °C and (25±2) % relative humidity.
