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 surface using 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.
