An Innovative Solution For Equipotential Zones In Utility Applications

Jobsite access for utility construction and maintenance projects is now better than ever with our new DURA-BASE® EPZ Grounding System™. This innovation consists of our DURA-BASE® mats fitted with custom-constructed, metal grids. When properly connected to other elements of the jobsite grounding grid, the EPZ Grounding System™ provides the benefits of an equipotential zone, reducing electrical hazards such as touch and step voltage differentials while providing a strong work platform during potential hazardous activities including pulling of wire from spools and the stringing of lines.
