Conductive Aggregates help achieve a low resistant Earth Termination Network reading, but Marconite is the best all-around performer. It is maintenance free and especially good for use in dry and arid conditions.
The purpose of an earth termination network or “earthing system”, is to provide a low impedance pathway for both electrical fault and lightning discharge currents to safely dissipate into the ground. At Kingsmill Industries, we stress that the continuous and consistent operation of your earthing system is critical to ensure safety of the electrical installation, building occupants and electronic items contained within.
Earth Bars are manufactured as standard with plain exposed copper bar, this is fine and does not cause any problems as generally the Earth Bars are located on the inside of a building, usually inside a nice, dry, warm substation/communication room or neatly situated indoors, out of the way in a dry location.
Down to Earth keeps you updated on all things Earthing and Lightning Protection. We care about keeping you and your structures safe, and to do so, we ask our top specialists to share some of their know-how regarding products and installations.
