Galvan Threadless Ground Rod Couplings Provide Secure Connection Of NEMA GR-1 Copper-Coated Electrical Ground Rod Electrodes

Share Article

When coupled ground rods separate, the problem is usually with the coupling. Galvan threadless couplings solve that problem.

Galvan UL-listed threadless coupling for copper ground rods meets NEMA GR-1 specifications.

Galvan threadless couplings cure separation anxiety.

Now available for immediate delivery, Galvan Industries' threadless couplings for copper-coated ground rods are designed, built and guaranteed to securely connect any manufacturers' rods that are made to the design parameters of the ANSI Approved /NEMA GR-1 ground rod specification.

For example, the specified diameter of a 5/8" nominal copper coated ground rod can vary within the range of .555 and .565 inches, according to NEMA GR-1. The specification requires that a coupling used with this rod must be able to resist a pullout force of no less than 1500 pounds throughout the specified diameter range. Galvan threadless couplings pass this test.

Galvan offers a complete line of threadless ground rod couplings for copper-coated and galvanized ground rods. Couplings for copper-coated rods are available in sizes ½”, 5/8” and ¾” and made from bronze alloy. Couplings for galvanized rods are made of coated steel and are available in sizes 5/8” and ¾”.

Galvan’s threadless couplings work by creating a compression joint without splitting or cracking when the rods are driven. Once connected, the force required to pull the rods apart from this joint is more than 1500 pounds so joined rods can be driven without worry over possible future separation.

Galvan couplings are marked with the manufacturers symbol, part number, trade size and the identifying mark of the listing agency to ensure traceability as required by RUS.
