I'm looking for carpeting for the area outside of a machine room that
won't cause the "shuffle your feet and shock yourself" phenomenon. I

I once recommended anti-static carpet for a machine room, and I was
very happy with the way it turned out. I might be able to dig up the
name of the supplier if you contact me off-line.


Nah, let me... My father is a supplies distributor who sells to flooring
contractors and retailers. I guarantee he will have the answer, as he has
been in the business for over 20 years.
