Earthing Specialists - a summary

Earthing specialists are key in developing the right solutions to overcome potential risks associated with electricity. These solutions, dependant on risk may vary and range from the design and installation of lightning and surge protection right through to the use of sophisticated soil resistivity testing to determine the extent and performance of an earthing system - vital for the protection of life - which may result in the installation of a simple earth electrode driven into the ground up to a complex grid of conductors spanning thousands of square metres.

Earthing specialists would be involved in a number of applications such as high and low voltage earthing, generator earthing, anti-static earthing, sub-station earthing, electro-magnetic pulse protection, industrial and commercial installations, lightning protection and rail engineering.
