||Bonding vs. Grounding: A Primer
Bonding and grounding are simple concepts, but, unfortunately, they’re
also easily confused with each other. Definitions of one term often get
wrapped up in the definitions of the other, and, before long, one can
begin thinking the words are interchangeable.
“Grounding” refers to the creation of a path from electrical equipment
to the earth. It is intended to protect equipment and help prevent fires
that might occur due to high voltages resulting from lightning strikes,
line surges or unintended contact with higher-voltage lines.
||Easy Does It: Communications Wiring Devices
In communications, contractors want wiring devices that make
installation easier yet also provide flexibility so they can find
efficiencies on the job site. Arlington Industries, Inc.’s
non-metallic, Low Voltage Mounting Brackets, for example, save time and
money with faster and easier mounting of Class 2 communications,
computer, and cable TV wiring. Because the mounting brackets are
designed to mount wall plates flush, they offer features (such as
specially designed screw holes) that deliver an easy-to-install job.
