Copper Coated Ground Rods

 
Copper Coated Ground Rods
  • Galvan’s copper coated rods have a heavy, uniform coating of copper metallurgically bonded to a rigid steel core.
  • Color-coded to reduce errors.
  • UL Listed rods have 10-mil minimum (254 microns) copper plating. UL/RUS models have 13-mil minimum of copper but 10-mil coating is acceptable.
  • Galvan manufactures copper-coated rods under patent 6,527,934.
  • Rods less than eight feet or less than 10 mils of copper, do not meet UL requirements, nor the NEC Code.
  • RUS now accepts 10 mils of copper. Please see page 5.
  • Made in USA.
