Galvan's New Universal Stainless Steel Ground Rod
Clamp May Be The Only Clamp You Need To Buy

HARRISBURG, N.C.- Galvan Industries’ new stainless steel “one size fits all” ground rod clamp is unique in both design and construction. With body and bolt made of 304 stainless steel, it is lightweight and corrosion resistant in nearly any environment and can be used with more types and sizes of ground rods than any other clamp. In fact, for most contractors, the new SRC-SS may be the only clamp they ever need to buy.

The “patent pending” SRC-SS is designed for use with galvanized, copper-coated and stainless steel ground rods, as well as rebar. It is UL-Listed in the US and Canada for direct burial in both earth and concrete.

Its listing covers use with 3/8, 1/2, 5/8 and 3/4-inch ground rods. For 3/8, 1/2 and 5/8-inch copper-coated and galvanized rods the listed wire range is 10 solid - 1/0 stranded. For 3/4-inch rods the wire range is 8 solid - 1/0 stranded. For stainless steel rods, the listed wire range is 8 solid to 2 stranded.

The SRC-SS can simplify inventories by replacing a wide range of other clamps made for economy, standard duty, heavy duty and extra heavy duty applications. Its versatility eliminates the need to carry assorted different-size clamps and reduces errors caused by shipping the wrong clamp.

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 and transmission, telecommunications and OEM markets.

Galvan products are stocked at strategic sites around the country to assure fast deliveries. To learn more, or for ordering, contact Galvan Industries at 1-800-277-5678, Fax (704) 455-5215; e-mail: sales@galvanizersonline.com. Visit Galvan on the web at www.galvanelectrical.com.
