Proper grounding is essential to a successful telecom conduit assembly.
Your telecom conduit can attract electricity from some powerful sources and when you need to protect it from lightning strikes, Pittsburgh Pipe can supply the proper ground rods to direct the current from your important telecom equipment. To make sure the personnel that is using the telecommunications equipment is safe and that the sensitive equipment is protected, your telecom installation should have proper grounding.
The right telecom products, right on time!
In addition to being a supplier, we can also provide the proper installation procedures for your ground rods. True lightning and surge protection is built from the ground up. The installation of grounding rods has to be completely understood in order for the equipment to work properly. This includes proper verification testing to make sure the equipment is installed correctly. Cable should never be coiled or installed with bends or loops. Instead, it should be installed as straight as possible to prevent dangerous resistance.
Downtime is expensive. When you invest in underground conduit for your own network, the last thing you need is unpredictable service and intermittent data loss from outside interference. If you have used a conducting metal for your buried telecom conduit, it needs to be adequately protected from dangers like moisture, animals, shifting ground, and the often overlooked – lightning strike.
