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
noticed most datacenters I've seen are carpeted up to the entrance without
any ESD problems. Is there special "anti-ESD" carpet? Where might I find

There is some UK folklore that if you rub fairy liquid (though I guess
any washing-up liquid will do) into carpet-tiles they lose the above

Alternatively you can get carpet tiles which are conductive for this purpose
(I think they have small amounts of metalized fibres woven in). Don't know
where from.
