Unicrimp’s latest new product development activity sees the company enter a brand new product category with the launch of a range of earthing rods and component products.
Earth Rods, or Earth Electrodes, are conductive metal poles buried directly into the ground and connected to the Earth circuit of an electrical installation. If there is a fault, they provide a low resistance path that allows electricity to safely dissipate out into the ground.
An effective earthing system is a fundamental requirement of any modern structure or system for both operational and safety reasons. Without such a system, the safety of a structure, the equipment contained within it and its occupants are compromised.
There is a growing need for improved reliable earthing as current infrastructure is ageing and deteriorating and the increased use of plastics within incoming services is reducing earthing possibilities. Earth rods offer a simple, effective and reliable solution to ongoing concerns.
The new Unicrimp Earthing Product range comprises just 10 individual products which together forms an earthing system. At the heart of the system is the Threaded Earth Rod, made with a low carbon, high tensile steel core and molecular bonded 99.9% pure copper coating for maximum conductivity, strength and durability.
Where required, multiple Earth Rods can be joined together using threaded couplers and the threaded driving stud attaches to the top of the Earth Rod to protect against damage when driving the Earth Rod into the ground. A selection of clamps and two inspection pits make up the range.
This new complete earthing system has a consistent design throughout the range, making it adaptable to meet the installers ever changing needs and simplify the overall installation.
All products in the range meet British, European and international standards and all components are manufactured from high quality materials designed to ensure long lasting performance even in the harshest soil conditions. They are supplied with a one year manufacturer’s warranty as standard.
