The Safe, Easy, Reliable Grounding System: Thomas & Betts Blackburn® EZGround™ Compression Connectors

TNB Blackburn EZGround Compression Connectors Universal. Flexible. Fast.

Blackburn EZGround Compression Connectors deliver a safe, agency-approved, all-weather alternative to traditional exothermic welding. These smart connectors are universal, flexible, and fast—no molds needed. Plus, with a smart, range-taking ability, EZGround Compression Connectors reduce the parts you need to get the job done. In fact, just one EZGround Figure 6 Connector takes the place of up to 30 different exothermic molds.

Code Compliant.

EZGround Connectors use rugged and long-lasting crimping tools that are easy to handle and provide visual and verifiable proof of proper installation. When installed in accordance with product specifications, the die markings on the compression fittings make the EZGround system easy to inspect and provide visual proof that the system conforms to standards. So you can be confident you’ll meet code requirements.

Installation Made Easy.

EZGround Connectors also save you labor. The system installs in about 50 percent of the time it takes to install an exothermic weld connection. Plus, these connectors can be installed in all weather conditions—from wind to snow and torrential downpour. So even if you prefer traditional exothermic welds on a regular basis, you might want to keep EZGround connectors handy for the proverbial rainy day. With EZGround Compression Connectors, you’ll save time, material, and labor.
