The thread must be rolled after plating to ensure maximum copper coverage over the threads. Rolled threads are also stronger than cut threads.
Material: Pure copper molecularly bonded on to a steel core
Standard: BS:EN 62561-2, BS 7430
Copper Thickness: 254 microns (minimum)
To assemble Kingsmill Copperbond Earth Rods to the desired length with Couplings and add a Driving Stud to the top and a Driving Spike to the bottom for safe driving into the ground. (Refer to “How to Install” tab for further information)
For installing earthing applications, Copper is the recommended material to use whether below or above ground.
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.
Our castings are high quality/high copper content complying with BS 7430 and BS 62561-1. Additional to our range are UL listed Copperbond earth rods and exothermic welding.
