EARTH RODS

COPPERBOND EARTH RODS deep driven, usually provide the most cost effective earth system. They are made from a low carbon, high tensile strength steel core with a coating of 99.9% pure electrolytic copper, that has been molecularly bonded to the steel core.

Copperbond Earth Rods

Copperbond Earth Rods

Copperbond Earth Rods, deep driven, usually provide the most cost effective earth system. They are made from a low carbon, high tensile strength (minimum 600n/mm2) steel core with a coating of 99.9% pure electrolytic copper, that has been molecularly bonded to the steel core.

Material:

Pure copper molecularly bonded on to a steel core

Standard:

BS:EN 62561-2, BS 7430

Copper Thickness:

254 microns (minimum)

Extendable type rods have a rolled thread (UNC2A) at each end. Rolled threads have a higher strength than cut threads. Additionally, they preserve the copper coating over the threaded sections thus improving corrosion resistance.

ACCESSORIES:

Earth Rod Couplings aEarth Rod Couplings b

Couplings (Copperbond Earth Rods)

Earth Rod Couplings are counter-bored and of sufficient length to ensure that Earth Rod threads are completely enclosed within the coupling. Manufactured from high strength, high copper content alloy to ensure adequate strength and corrosion resistance.

Material:

High Copper Content Alloy/Silicon Aluminium Bronze

Standard:

BS 7430, BS:EN 62561-2: 2012

Driving Spikes (Copperbond Earth Rods)

Driving Spikes for use with our Copperbond Earth Rods. They enable rods to be driven into hard/compacted ground with ease and are internally threaded for screwing directly onto the Earth Rod.

Material:

Case Hardened Steel

Standard:

BS 7430

Solid Copper Earth Rods

Used where soil conditions are aggressive, ie high salt content.

Material:

99.9% Hard Drawn Copper

Standard:

ACCESSORIES:

STAINLESS STEEL EARTH RODS are similar to our Solid Copper Rods but are more anodic than copper, and are useful where galvanic corrosion might occur due to buried dissimilar metals being in close proximity to each other.

Stainless Steel Earth Rods diaStainless Steel Earth Rods

Stainless Steel Earth Rods

Made from austenitic steel to British standards.

Stainless Steel Earth Rods are similar to our Solid Copper Rods but are more anodic than copper, and are useful where galvanic corrosion might occur due to buried dissimilar metals being in close proximity to each other. The current carrying capacity of the Stainless Steel Earth Rod in relation to copper is poor.

Material:

Stainless steel

Standard:

BS:EN 62561-2, BS 7430

Stainless Steel Earth Rods have a tapped hole at each end which allows them to be joined together by means of a Coupling Dowel and can, if required, be supplied in different grades.

Recommended for clay soils and marine/shore environments.

PLATES & MATS

SOLID COPPER EARTH PLATES are used as part of an earthing network. They provide a long lasting solution where it is not possible to use deep driven Earth Rods. LATTICE COPPER EARTH MATS are used where step potential could cause problems.

Solid Copper Plates

Solid Copper Plates

Solid Copper Earth Plates are used as part of an earthing network. They provide a long lasting solution where it is not possible to use deep driven Earth Rods.

Material:

Copper

Standard:

Lattice Copper Earth MatsLattice Copper Earth Mats b

Lattice Copper Earth Mats

Kingsmill Lattice Copper Earth Mats are used where step potential could cause problems. They are a lower cost option to the solid plates and when used with Marconite®, they provide a long lasting earth solution. Generally used as an electrode where significant amounts of fault current can be encountered.

Material:

Copper
