Polymer Earth Housing Pit

Description

The Polymer Earth Housing Pit is constructed from high-grade polypropylene, ensuring exceptional strength and durability. This material is carefully chosen to withstand medium loads while being resistant to degradation from sunlight and non-brittle to avoid damage in cold weather. Its lightweight design significantly eases handling, storage, and transportation, thereby enhancing installation efficiency. Notably, this housing pit offers an innovative feature: the ability to double the termination area. By simply locking two units together, it allows for deeper electrode connections and effectively reduces harmful voltage gradients.

Installation Instructions

  1. Site Preparation: Identify a suitable location for the housing pit that aligns with the grounding system's requirements.
  2. Excavation: Dig a hole in the ground that accommodates the outer dimensions of the housing pit.
  3. Placement: Carefully place the Polymer Earth Housing Pit into the excavated area, ensuring it is level with the ground surface.
  4. Connection: Install the grounding electrode or system inside the pit, making sure the connections are secure and well-protected.
  5. Unit Locking (if needed): If deeper electrode connections are required, lock two units together by aligning and securing them at the designed locking points.
  6. Final Adjustments: Ensure all connections are secure and cover the pit with the provided polymer lid.
  7. Backfilling: Fill in the surrounding area and compact the soil around the pit for stability.
