THE WRICON EARTHING SYSTEM enables the entire earthing system to be located completely within the structure, thus providing a location away from any possibility of accidental damage or unauthorised disconnection.
The heart of the WRICON Earthing System is the unique Earthing Terminal Plate which allows earthing to the building frame (foundations or rebar) easily, simply and very professionally by any person who can weld proficiently. Earthing to the building frame (foundations or rebar) is permitted under the E.W.R. of New Zealand and the use of WRICON Earthing System has obvious advantages:
Reinforcing steel in concrete foundations provides an indestructible earth electrode.
Wricon earth lead is safely cast within the concrete and can not be servered by digging or theft.
CADWELD welded connections (unlike compression connections) do not deteriorate. Additionally this system prevents galvanic corrosion and high resistance joints, permanently.
Lower resistance to earth than conventional methods and is much less subject to seasonal changes.
Please have the following information at hand when ordering your Wricon:
Connection style - what you are connecting to
Conductor size - 35mm2, 95mm2 etc.
Note: Customised Wricon Lengths are available on request
