Steel Grounding Plates from Galvan Provide Years of Safe, Reliable Grounding Protection

HARRISBURG, N.C.- In some soil conditions, driving a ground rod may not be practical. Steel grounding plates from Galvan Electrical Products offer a safe and reliable alternative.

Often used by utilities, Galvan steel ground plate electrodes buried below grade provide an excellent connection to earth. Their large surface area (10"x16") efficiently and safely dissipates current into the ground. Made of 1/4" steel and hot dip galvanized for corrosion resistance, they give up to 40 years of worry-free grounding protection in most soils. They are also available as bare steel.

Galvan Industries’ electrical grounding products are used in a wide variety of residential, commercial and industrial applications. These include construction, cable TV, lightning protection, power generation, telecommunications and OEM markets. Galvan products are stocked in strategic sites around the country to assure fast deliveries.
