Earth Rods

Earth Rods

Solid stainless steel earth rods are manufactured using 316 grade stainless steel and are highly resistant to corrosion. Stainless steel rods are best used or earthing installations where the problem of galvanic corrosion may take place between dissimilar metals buried in close proximity to each other. All solid stainless steel earth rods manufactured by LPI are supplied with external threads.

Copper bonded earth rods are made from high tensile low carbon steel and each rod is manufactured by molecularly bonding 99.9% pure electrolytic copper to the low carbon steel core in accordance with national and international standards such as BS6651, BS7430 and UL467. Threads are rolled onto the rod ensuring an even copper covering which eliminates the risk of chipping whilst driving.  The unthreaded copper bonded earth rods are sectional rods which can be coupled together using high strength copper alloy compression couplings. The couplings are tapered so that when the rod is driven into the coupling, the two parts compress to form a conductive connection. The solid copper earth rods are manufactured from hard drawn copper and are best installed in highly corrosive conditions such as soils containing excessive salt content. All solid copper rods manufactured by LPI® are supplied with an external thread.
