The most important and costly investment an organization makes is in their sensitive electronic equipment. As this equipment becomes more sophisticated and electrically susceptible, the need for an exceptionally low-resistance grounding system becomes crucial.
It is in response to this requirement that ALLTEC developed the TerraDyne® electrolytic grounding system, TerraFill® low resistivity grounding backfill, TerraWeld® exothermic welding System, GroundGuardian® active floating roof tank monitoring system, TerraBar bus bars, and other protection innovations.

Grounding & Bonding Products
To ensure 99.999% of service availability and to prolong the service life of mission-critical equipment, facilities must be equipped to dissipate damaging levels of transient surge energy. A complete lightning protection system includes strike termination devices, surge protection devices, and grounding electrodes as well as its required interconnecting conductors, connectors, and fittings.
UL 96A recommends installing UL Listed surge protection devices on each electric service entrance per NEC Article 285, ANSI/NFPA 70. ALLTEC DynaShield® surge protection devices (SPDs) reduce the magnitude of random high-energy, short-duration electrical power anomalies to keep your site operating reliably.

Securing investments, operations, and personnel against direct lightning strikes is critical for any organization. ALLTEC’s TerraStat® Charge Dissipation Terminals, TerraStreamer®Early Streamer Emission Terminals, Lightning Strike Counters, Catenary Systems, and traditional lightning protection components each have their own unique methods of effectively protecting your people and facility from lightning damages and injury.
A properly installed lightning protection system (LPS) is over 98% effective in preventing damage associated with a lightning strike. Installation of an LPS is a tried and true protection method that has been used for more than a century. An organization can best approach and resolve the concerns of safety and power quality issues by utilizing the complete facility framework employed by the solution specialists at ALLTEC. As one major customer tells us, “We used to get 100 lightning events per year affecting our facility. Once ALLTEC analyzed our infrastructure and engineered a system, only 1 event was experienced and most importantly that event had no impact on us.”
