Earthing and Bonding Products
Earthing and bonding are an integral part of any modern electrical protection system design. ERICO offers the best range of long lasting and cost-effective earthing and bonding products available.
For instance, the ERITECH copper-bonded ground rod will bend without tears, cracks or folds, to the outer sheath which will significantly increase its serviceable life and maintain the integrity of the entire electrode as opposed to cheaper ground rods. To enhance the soil conductivity in areas where soil resistivity is high, ERICO’s Ground Enhancement Material (GEM) is a superior product. Once in its set form, maintains constant resistance for the life of the ground system. It performs in all soil conditions even during dry spells and is permanent – i.e. does not dissolve, shrink, decompose or leach out with time.
Besides the above, West Australian Power Protection (WAPP) offers all other earthing and bonding products such as clamps, earth cables, copper tape, earth pits, earth mesh and much more for your earthing needs. Please call WAPP on 08 9451 2199 if you would like us to estimate the amount of GEM required for an installation and also resistivity values for common GEM application.
