Earth Bonding Homepage
The Glenair Earth bonding system is a fast, effective and reliable means of creating an attachment to metallic structures. It creates an equipotential bond between equipment for the passage of high intensity current in case of short circuit. Suitable where lightning strike protection is required, for EMC where low resistance electrical connections must be maintained, and in hazardous areas where naked flame is not permitted.
Some industry sectors that have selected the Glenair Earth Bonding system as their chosen method of electrical grounding being Railway rolling stock, automotive, communications, military vehicle manufacture.
Within this site area we have provided some information on the method of installation, the products and typical performance values.
In addition to repeatable electrical connections having low electrical resistance the system also demonstrates connections having high tensile and bending moment values. Considering applications where access behind a structure is not possible where our system is installed from one side.
We invite you to contact us for further information on this system when we may discuss your specific requirements. See also our Sub Sea Bond.

The Glenair Earth Bonding system is a revolutionary method of creating an electrical bond between structures and equipment for the secure passage of high intensity current in case of electrical short circuit.
The earth bonding system has been independently tested by the ‘Defence Evaluation and Research Agency’ (DERA).
The Earth Bonding system has Lloyds Register Type Approval: Certificate number 02/00022 issued 27 March 2002.
Application ENV1, ENV2, ENV5.
The Sub Sea Bond. A joint development between Glenair and Dubuis, France. An underwater installable connection designed to link sacrificial anodes to sub sea structures.
