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 and accessories to direct the current away from your important communications equipment. The right equipment will make sure the personnel that is using the telecommunications equipment is safe, and that the sensitive equipment is protected from lightning strikes and the resulting power surges.

Proper installation of the metal grounding rod clamps is essential to the correct function of the grounding rods. They need to be secure but they cannot impede the conduit or damage it, either during installation or in the case of any ground movement. Pittsburgh Pipe is always on hand to help with any questions or concerns you have during the installation process.

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 and resulting power surges.
