Grounding & Bonding

As the railway electrical protection experts, nVent ERICO offers a wide-range of grounding and bonding products to protect railway properties. Grounding is required for wayside structures and facilities, and essential to employee and public safety. Grounding and bonding is also essential to the nVent ERICO Six Point Plan of Protection, which provides a system of capturing, conveying and dissipating energy into the ground. To effectively dissipate energy into the ground, nVent ERICO provides ground rods and mats that bury into the earth, ground enhancement materials, as well as bonding solutions such as P.E.C. (Potential Earth Clamps) that protect the system. The diagram pictured right shows how these nVent ERICO products integrate to efficiently dissipate energy into the ground.
