Grounding Rods Ground or grounding rods are usually made of carbon steel no less than 5/8 of an inch thick. This enables the rods to be driven a minimum of eight feet into the ground,without bending or cracking. For maximum corrosion resistance, rods are plated with either zinc (hot dipped galvanized) or UL-listed copper (electro-plated) - at a non-eroding thickness . With proper installation, ground rods become the final connector of a grounding electrode meeting or exceeding most local electric codes with a resistance of 25 Ohms or less.

Copper-Bonded Ground Rods - UL Listed
Suitable for grounding projects governed by local electric codes, Storm Grounding's 8' Copper-Bonded Ground Rods are copper electro-plated to a thickness of 1.3 millimeters (.3 mil thicker than the UL standard for listing). A metallurgical-clad bonds the copper plate to rigid steel forming an even covering. This enables the rod to drive easier into the ground without cracking, providing an extremely corrosive-resistant surface, with the least ground resistance for more efficient transfer of electric current. NAED UPC # 632591-61217-3. Weight 7/lbs each.Please indicate quantity with order.
8' Copper-Bonded Sectional Ground Rods are threaded at both ends for coupling. Threads are rolled to ensure an even copper surface for greater strength. Please indicate quantity with order.
10' Copper-Bonded Ground Rods have a 3/4" cold-drawn steel core with an average tensile strength of 80,000 psi. Straightness tolerance is .010 in per linear foot. UL Listed, with 10 mil of copper plating.
* Please note: 10' rods exceed the requirement for shipping UPS and must be shipped by common carrier so they DO NOT QUALIFY for the FREE UPS ground shipping program.
