    UL-Listed Galvan Gold Series Galvanized Ground Rods
    Cost Savings and Code Compliance Since 2004
Since Galvan industries brought the first UL-Listed galvanized ground rod to market in 2004, electrical contractors and inspectors now think differently about ground rods.
Today’s contractors see listed galvanized ground rods as a cost-saving, easier-driving alternative to full-size rods. A listed galvanized rod also gives contractors the flexibility to choose a safe, code-compliant product with either copper-coated or galvanized corrosion protection, depending on their needs.
Many inspectors now ask contractors to leave a shovel-full of dirt away from the top of the rod for inspections. When the listing symbol is visible on any ground rod, they know it meets code. When there is no visible listing mark, it is impossible to know if a driven rod meets NEC requirements, especially for length.
Our color-coded ground rods eliminate errors
Galvan also pioneered the color coding of ground rods to help ensure that our customers get the right ground rod every time. Different colors indicate different diameters. The colors are painted on the pointed rod ends, eliminating inventory and installation mistakes.
