What is an EPZ Grounding Grate?

The EPZ Grounding Grate is a one-piece galvanized steel grate used to create an equipotential bonded and grounded work zone. This zone then protects crews from step-potential and Grade 5 fault currents. EPZ Grounding Grates are positioned on the ground then bonded together with 4/o copper cables and 2-hole lug connectors, creating an equipotential zone for puller/tensioner sites, and portable substations. The additional lug areas on EPZ Grounding Grates are for securing grounding cables between stringing equipment and grates. Our grates are quick to install and bolt together, allowing for quick assembly and easy removal.
