Grounding Protection


Proper grounding is critical to personnel safety and uninterrupted operations, and serves as the foundation for a complete lightning protection system. For over 35 years we’ve helped companies around the world increase their safety and reliability using a combination of advanced testing services and superior grounding products designed with lightning in mind.

1. RGA™ for Floating Roof Tanks

RGA For Floating Roof Tanks

Floating roof tanks are always at risk from fires caused by lightning strikes. The award winning Retractable Grounding Assembly reduces this risk by creating a low-impedance bond between the roof and shell. The RGA is cost effective, easy to install, and virtually maintenance free.

2. Chem-Rod™ Grounding Electrode

Chem-Rod Grounding Electrode

The patented Chem-Rod creates the optimal earth connection with a large conductive surface, electrolytic salts, and specially formulated backfill. Available in a variety of configurations, Chem-Rods help achieve your target resistance using fewer electrodes and less real estate.
