Galvan Lay-In Ground Clamps Earn UL Listing For Rebar Applications

CHARLOTTE - Galvan's JRD Series Direct Burial Ground Clamps have earned UL Listing status for rebar applications. The UL designation covers clamps that are buried in earth or concrete. The lay-in clamps are also used extensively with piping and ground rods. Most acorn clamps and split bolts on the market are not UL listed for rebar.

The Galvan clamps are designed for easy installation and extended service. JRD ground clamps feature a bronze alloy body with stainless steel screws. They're ideal for many types of projects, for wires ranging from #10 to #2; piping from 1/2" to 1"; rebar from 3/8" to 1" and ground rods between 1/2 " to 1".

These lay-in ground clamps reduce contractor and distributor inventories by combining four clamp styles into a single, rugged direct-burial clamp. The JRD Series also offers significant labor savings. Presetting clamps with the lay-in feature allows jobs to be configured in 66% less time.

Galvan Industries designs and manufactures electrical products for a wide variety of residential, commercial and industrial applications. These include construction, cable TV, lightning protection, power generation, telecommunications and OEM markets.
