Kingsmill Lattice Copper Earth Mats are used where step potential could cause problems.
They are a lower-cost 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 buried horizontally, Earth Mats can provide an equipotential plane for protecting operators at switching positions.
An Earth Termination Network must:
- protect life,
- provide a low resistivity path to earth,
- allow circuit protection devices to operate correctly,
- carry high currents repeatedly,
- have excellent corrosion resistance properties, and
- be mechanically robust.
