It is made of copper, which is an excellent conductor of electricity, and is designed to be driven into the ground to a depth where it can make good contact with the soil.
The purpose of an earthing spike is to create a low-resistance path for electrical current to flow to the earth, which helps to prevent electrical shock, damage to electrical equipment, and electrical fires. When an electrical system is properly earthed, any stray or leakage current can be safely directed to the earth, where it dissipates harmlessly.
Copper earthing spikes are commonly used in a variety of applications, including residential and commercial electrical systems, telecommunications, and industrial facilities. They can be installed as standalone units or as part of a larger earthing system that includes conductors, bonding connections, and other components. The effectiveness of a copper earthing spike depends on factors such as soil composition, moisture content, and the size and depth of the spike.
