Kingsmill Lattice Copper Earth Mats are used where step potential could cause problems.
They are a lower-cost protective earth 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.
Standard: BS:EN 12163 (formerly BS 2874)
Other sizes are available on request. Kingsmill can provide a bespoke service for large Earth Mats, which can be rolled-out on site. Please contact us with your requirements.
When burried horizontally, Earth Mats can provide an equipotential plane for protecting operators at switching positions.
For installing lightning earthing system applications, We recommend the use of Copper earth electrode systems due to their inherent low resistivity and corrosion resistance.
Materials used in earthing systems must be able to:
- withstand mechanical damage,
- resist corrosion,
- provide a low impedance path to earth,
- and carry the maximum fault condition for the application/installation.
For protective earth networks and lightning protection applications our range encompasses:
Copper earth rod, earthing pole, copper bonded ground rod, earth ground rod, earth rod connector, earth rod cover, earth fitting, earthing studs, ground clamps for ground rod, ground pole and grounding post.
Our castings are high quality/high copper content complying to BS 7430 and BS 62561-1. Additional to our range are UL listed copperbond earth rods and exothermic welding.
