Galvan Grounding Pipe Clamps For Armored Cable
Feature 360 Degree Swivel For Easier Alignment


HARRISBURG, N.C. – Galvan Electrical Products has introduced a series of UL and CSA listed pipe clamps for armored cable that feature swivel heads for easier, more secure grounding connections.

The clamps are used to connect armored cable to water pipe for grounding. The 360-degree swivel head facilitates alignment with the cable and the pipe.

A special pressure bar grips the armored cable insulation to decrease chances of the grounding conductor being pulled out. The appropriate conductors are threaded through the grounding connector. Zinc plated steel screws secure the cable, the clamp and the conductor, and keep the swivel head in the proper position once the installation is complete.

Cast from a highly conductive copper alloy, these new high-strength pipe clamps are available in three sizes to fit a variety of pipe and armored cable sizes. They come standard with corrosion-resistant zinc plated steel screws for long, reliable service life.

In addition to grounding pipe clamps, Galvan manufactures a broad line of connectors and splices including split bolts, mechanical connectors and splices, compression connectors and splices, insulation piercing connectors, lay-in connectors, multi-tap connectors, Kenny clamps, transformer lug kits, tap connectors and tools. Galvan offers free shipping on clamp and connector only orders.

Galvan is also well known as a major manufacturer of copper-clad, hot-dip galvanized, solid copper and stainless steel ground rods and related products. Ground rod, clamp and connector orders can be combined to lower shipping costs.

The entire family of Galvan products can be seen in the company's latest catalog, now available as a PDF download.  The catalog features a comprehensive series-by-series listing of Galvan products, including part numbers, dimensional drawings, technical data and application notes, as well as an illustrated cross-reference to competitive products. 

For more than 30 years, Galvan ground rods and electrical products have been used in residential, commercial and industrial applications including cable TV, lightning protection, power generation and telecommunications.

Made in America and manufactured to meet applicable UL, RUS, CSA, ASTM, ANSI and NEMA requirements, Galvan products are stocked at strategic sites around the country to assure fast deliveries.
