Encapsulated high-performance Isolating Spark Gap with M8 bolt and nut.
- Class H – Heavy Duty
- Easy Installation
Benefits: Suitable for use where a direct connection is not allowed, for example, the bonding of insulated joints and flanges in cathodically protected pipes.
Standards: EN 61643-11 (for surge protection devices)
Application: For indirect earthing of isolated conductive parts.
It is important within a Lightning Protection System (LPS) that the extraneous conductive parts of a structure are equipotentially bonded into the Lightning Protection network. The purpose of this bonding is to ensure that, in the event of a lightning discharge, any sparking or flashover of the lightning current to conductive parts of the structure, for example, water pipes, cables, hand rails etc are avoided.
