CHARLOTTE -- Rugged 304 and 316 stainless steel ground rods and mig-welded pigtails for galvanized and copper ground rods in a variety of diameters and lengths are the latest additions to the lineup of grounding rods from Galvan Industries.

Galvan manufactures all models of stainless steel ground rods including sectional rods. Standard sizes range from 5/8-inch by 5 feet to 1-inch by 10 feet.
