EK16/EK17 Direct Burial Ground Clamp


EK16/EK17 Direct Burial Ground Clamp

The new EK16 and EK17 Direct-Burial Ground Clamp from ERICO® is a time-saving, cost-effective versatile product that combines four clamps into one. This unique bronze-alloy grounding clamp with bronze screws consolidates separate rebar clamps, ground rod clamps, water pipe clamps and direct-burial water pipe clamps into one product, enabling contractors to save room on their trucks and distributors to save room on their shelves.

The UL®-listed product can be used with rebar, water pipes and ground rods. The clamp cuts installation time by allowing the contractor to pre-set the clamp on a piece of rebar or water pipe. After all of the clamps have been set, the ground conductor can then be installed using the clamp’s unique “lay-in” feature. Rather than threading the ground wire through a hole to make a continuous loop, the contractor can simply lay the conductor in the channel and tighten the setscrew without any time-consuming threading.
