An Innovative Solution For Equipotential Zones In Utility Applications
Jobsite access for utility construction and maintenance projects is now better than ever with our DURA-BASE EPZ Grounding System. Expanding upon benefits of the DURA-BASE composite mat, the fully integrated EPZ system’s patented technology provides an innovative solution for creating equipotential zones. Keep workers safe by reducing electrical danger, and providing a strong work platform during potential hazardous activities including pulling of wire from spools, stringing of line and creating mobile platforms for temporary substations.
The EPZ Grounding System provides a systematic circuit for an energized current to follow by bonding all conductive components to an earthen ground, creating a predominant circuit. Voltage is then gained from the predominant circuit and transferred to the EPZ grating, equalizing the electrical potential among all conductive equipment atop the EPZ System.
Features & Benefits of the EPZ Grounding System™
- Safety – Increased protection for workers; components enable an EPZ solution to increase grating conductivity and reduce risk of electrical arcing.
- Stabilization – Ability to work in uneven or saturated areas; EPZ mats interlock to create a continuous work surface minimizing the possibility of mat separation or lifted edges.
- Efficiency – Save time and money when compared to alternatives; transport up to 3x as many mats per truck, rapid install and dismantle of full EPZ solution.
- Environmental Protection – Leave no trace; minimal post-job reclamation. EPZ mats are impervious to liquids, contaminants are not carried from one job to the next.
The Connector Straps create electrical continuity from mat to mat.
Bus Bars - Custom bus bars can be attached anywhere on the mat grating for easy connection of grounding wires, bolts and cables.
Fencing - Optional safety barrier system meets all OSHA lead load requirements for steel and fiberglass rails and posts.
