SelecTech, Inc., a leader in the manufacture of innovative flooring products with long-term value and immediate benefits, recently announced the completion of the installation of its StaticStop tile, FreeStyle ESD, at Lutron Electronics’ manufacturing plant in Humacao, Puerto Rico. The project was initiated and installed by SelecTech distributor FM ESD.

“Hurricane Maria hit Lutron’s plant in Puerto Rico pretty hard, but the floor was in need of an upgrade prior to that,” said Thomas Ricciardelli, president of SelecTech, Inc., the makers of StaticStop ESD tiles. “Since downtime was a big concern, Lutron opted for our interlocking FreeStyle ESD tile. Using a special equipment to lift machinery and benches, FM ESD was able to install the flooring without disrupting operations and zero down time.”

For more than three decades, Lutron Electronics Co., Inc. has been recognized as the worldwide leader in the design, manufacture and marketing of quality lighting control products. Headquartered in PA, it has offices and operations throughout the world. The installation of more than 20,000 square feet of FreeStyle ESD at the Puerto Rico manufacturing facility took place in December.

FreeStyle ESD tiles employ a patented glueless “zipper” interlocking system that enables the flooring to be installed over existing flooring with minimal subfloor preparation. There’s no need for messy, toxic adhesive and down-time is significantly reduced—often times without need to close off an area.

Made with 70 percent recycled materials and 100 percent recyclable, FreeStyle ESD meets CA 1350 Indoor Air Quality and is MAS Certified Green.

FreeStyle ESD is available in Steel Blue, Off White, Gray and Platinum. FreeStyle ESD is also available in PLUS version, which has a conductive urethane finish for superior maintainability and comes in Apollo, Blizzard, Oasis, and Asteroid colors.
