The new stainless steel ground rod clamp now being offered by Galvan Industries fits all types and sizes of ground rods. The body and bolt of the rod clamp are made of 304 stainless steel and is light weight.
The new ground rod clamp named SRC-SS has been designed for use with stainless steel, copper coated and galvanised ground rods and rebar.
In the US and Canada, the ground rod clamp is UL-Listed for direct burial under earth and concrete. The listing of the clamp covers use with 3/8, 1/2, 5/8 and 3/4-in ground rods. For copper coated and galvanised rods measuring 3/8, 5/8-inch and 1/2-in, the listed wire range is 10 solid to 1/0 stranded. For stainless steel rods, the listed wire range is 8 solid to 2 stranded. With this specification, contractors can now use the same clamp for all their needs. The new ground clamp has the ability to replace various other clamps that are specifically manufactured for economy, standard duty, heavy duty and extra heavy duty applications. Since the clamp can be used for all applications, it reduces the possibility of using the wrong clamp in certain applications.
Ground clamps from Galvan Industries are used in various applications such as commercial, industrial and residential. Specific applications include cable TV, lightning protection, telecommunications, OEM markets and power generation and transmission.
