Made from austenitic steel according to British standards.
Stainless Steel Earth Rods are similar to our Solid Copper Rods but are more anodic than copper, and are useful where galvanic corrosion might occur due to buried dissimilar metals being in close proximity to each other. The current carrying capacity of the Stainless Steel Earth Rod in relation to copper is poor.
Recommended for clay soils and marine/shore environments.
Material: Stainless steel
Standard: BS:EN 62561-2, BS 7430
Stainless Steel Earth Rods have a tapped hole at each end which allows them to be joined together by means of a Coupling Dowel and can, if required, be supplied in different grades.
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.
