Flexible, Powerful Grounding With The BURNDY Braid


Standing On Solid Ground

Even the toughest conditions are no match for BURNDY Braid, commonly used in applications where thermal expansion and contraction between rigid parts exists, components are misaligned, and in environments subject to frequent vibration or shock. In challenging applications—like grounding fences, transportation systems, trains or moveable equipment in a manufacturing setting—BURNDY Braid barely breaks a sweat.

Keep Moving Forward With BURNDY

Through every twist and turn, BURNDY’s got your back. Flexible copper braid connectors offer a diverse solution for a range of power, grounding, and bonding applications. Bending backwards (and forward) to meet your needs, the BURNDY Braid can be configured to suit nearly any application. That means custom options for termination, flexibility requirements, length between connection points, current carrying capacity, vibration, corrosion resistance and insulation.

A Braid For Every Application

Terminal-style braids can be used for a variety of mounting methods, or where minimal space is available. These braids are also ideal for bonding two surfaces to reduce static discharge. Ferrule-style braids—made of seamless, electrolytic copper tubing that can be pressed into a variety of widths and thicknesses—offer a heavy-duty contact area for more rigorous grounding and power applications.
