Galvan Offers Fast Delivery On Full Range Of Mechanical Dual Rated Aluminum And Copper Connectors

CHARLOTTE -- Galvan Industries is now offering fast delivery on its comprehensive selection of mechanical connectors, from dual rated aluminum connectors and lay-in ground clamps to single- and double-hole copper lugs.

Galvan's LA Series of general-purpose solderless connectors features rugged 6061-T6 aluminum alloy construction for maximum strength and conductivity. The line is electro tin plated for low resistance and corrosion protection and is ideal for both copper and aluminum applications. Available in four different configurations, the reusable connectors require only a screwdriver or allen wrench for assembly.

The Galvan LI Series of lay-in connectors consists of dual rated ground clamps designed for use on conduit grounding bushings. The clamps' open faced design allows a quick lay-in of the grounding conductor as jumper to multiple conduits with no break in the ground conductor. They are not designed for direct burial.

Galvan also produces many varieties of single- and double-hole solderless lugs. These lugs are produced from high-strength pure electrolytic copper to deliver maximum strength and conductivity.

CF Series copper lugs are available with bent as well as straight tangs. A conductors is inserted between the lug's arched pressure bar and V-bottom collar to assure a positive, secure contact. Also, Galvan reusable copper lugs are easy to install using a screwdriver, wrench or pliers.
