Facility Electrical Protection
Grounding Productsand Systems
 
1. Capture the lightning strike to a known and preferred attachment point 2. Safely convey this energy to the ground  3. Dissipate energy into the grounding system4. Bond all ground points together 5. Protect incoming AC power feeders6. Protect low voltage data/telecommunications circuits At ERICO, we offer more than just the best range of  grounding and bonding products available. We offer engineeringexperience and technical support that is second to none in theindustry.With this experience, ERICOis a world leading authority inthe design and construction of  permanent, low impedance, grounding systems.ERICO’s quality assurance program, ensures that detailed  procedures required for every stepof operation, including design,materials procurement,manufacturing, installation and testing, produce the best possible system for our clients.Our research and development capabilities provide continuousdesign improvement with new and improved products that pre-empt the challenging requirementsof ever evolving industry applications. Engineering expertise is shared among the other ERICO operations worldwide, to providethe most comprehensive knowledge pool in the field.Our commitment to providing cost-effective, permanent  solutions for our customers is enhanced by on-site services, suchas providing advice in choosing the right product for the job and comprehensive site surveys.
Facility Electrical ProtectionDivision
Lightning protection, grounding, equipotential bonding and  surge protection are all interdependent disciplines, and the focusof our Facility Electrical Protection division. Reliable protection of  structures, industrial and commercial operations and personnel,demands a systematic and comprehensive approach tominimizing threats caused by transients.For instance, no air terminal can safely capture and arrest thelightning energy without adependable route to ground.Equally, even the most expensiveSurge Protection Device (SPD) will not provide optimum protection if a low impedance electrical connection to the ground is not  provided. The solution does not  stop here - a low impedance ground system may create hazardsto equipment and personnel alike if equipotential bonding practices arenot followed. Theseinterdependent disciplines are best applied when looking at a total facility rather than an individual  piece of equipment or portion of the facility. Our team of qualified applications engineers is here tohelp you with such challenges.Noting that there is no singletechnology that can eliminate theharmful effects of lightning or induced surge transients, ERICOInc. has developed the Six Point Protection Plan. The concept behind this plan is to prompt the user to consider a holistic and coordinated approach to lightning protection, one embracing all aspects of potential damage. This ranges from the more obviousdirect strike to the more subtle mechanisms of differential earth potential rises and voltage induction at service entry points. The six interdependent disciplines that form the protection plan are:
Founded in 1903 as the Electric Railway Improvement Company, ERICO
®
developed theCADWELD
®
exothermic welding process in 1938. CADWELD connections have foundindustry-wide acceptance as the ultimate electrical connection. During the 1970s, ERICO pioneeredthe development and standardization of the copperbonded steel groundingelectrode. Since that time, ERICO’s dominance as the world’s leading supplier of grounding productshas seen its expansion into many related industries.
