Galvan Type DGC Drive-On Ground Clamps Make UL-Listed Copper-Clad Rod Connections Simple

HARRISBURG, NC - Galvan Industries is now offering a line of drive-on ground clamps that are a perfect choice for use on all 5/8-inch diameter UL Listed copper-clad ground rods in direct-burial applications.

Produced in the U.S., Galvan Type DGC ground clamps are made out of high-strength copper alloy - the same material used for UL Listed "acorn" configuration ground rod clamps. The clamps securely bond one or two No. 4 or No. 6 solid copper conductors.

No special tools are needed for installing DGC model drive-on clamps, just a hammer. During the drive phase of installation, compression ensures maximum direct surface-to-surface copper contact between a conductor and ground rod electrode. Using a drive head to drive a rod into soil reduces risk of mushrooming and deformation on rod ends and makes installation of the drive-on clamp easier.

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, telecommunications and OEM markets.
