A groundbed is an array of electrodes, installed in the ground to provide a low resistance electrical path to ground or earth. A groundbed is a component in an earthing system.

Each electrode is called a ground rod or a earth electrode.
Grounding systems
For building electrical grounding systems or earthing systems there is a low resistance conductor bonding the metalwork and this is connected to a groundbed. The electrodes for electrical grounding are often called ground rods and are often made from steel with a copper clad surface – typically 1 to 2m long and 20 millimetres in diameter. These are driven vertically into the ground and bonded together with bare copper wire.

Cathodic protection
In cathodic protection, the anode groundbed is the arrangement of anodes in the ground or water and it provides the path for protective current to leave the anodes and enter to electrolyte.

Certain ground conditions make it difficult to obtain a reliable earth resistance, whilst particular installations may require a very low resistance. In such cases, Marconite provides a convenient and permanent solution.
By adding Marconite in place of sand and aggregate, to cement, a conductive concrete is formed. This electrically conductive medium has many applications in the electrical/construction industry, including RF and microwave screening, static control and of course earthing, for which it was specifically developed.

When used as a backfill for earth electrodes, Marconite impregnated concrete greatly increases the electrodes surface area thus lowering its resistance to earth.

No other product can offer the same benefits as Marconite in earthing applications.

Used as an earth-electrode backfill to reduce soil resistivity by retaining moisture. The clay consists largely of sodium montmorillonite, which when mixed with water swells to many times its dry volume. It has the ability to hold its moisture content for a considerable period of time and to absorb moisture from the surrounding soil (e.g.from rainfall).

First copper bond earth rods probably offer to the installer the best and most economical earth rods available. They are made by molecularly bonding 99.9% pure electrolytic copper onto a low carbon steel core. First rods are not of the sheathed type. They are highly resistant to corrosion, and because the steel used has a very high tensile strength, they can be driven by power hammers to great depths.

The counter-bored couplings are made from high copper content alloy, commercial brass is not used. This again ensures excellent corrosion resistance and high strength.

How to apply earthing equipment

An effective earthing system is a fundamental requirement of any modern structure or system for operational and/or safety reasons. Without such a system, the safety of a structure, the equipment contained within it and its occupants is compromised.

Earthing systems typically fall into (but are not limited to) one of the following categories:

-power generation, transmission and distribution
-lightning protection
-control of undesirable static electricity

Conductors and Earth Rods
As with lightning protection, the first choice faced by the designer of an earthing system is the type of conductor to be used. The correct choice of conductor is extremely important, whether it be a simple below ground electrode or a complex computer room signal reference grid.


There are three types of conductor: flat tape, solid circular and stranded cable.

A range of conductor materials are available. Above ground, copper, aluminium and steel may be used. Below ground, copper is the most common choice due to its high resistance to corrosion.

It is important that earthing conductors should be correctly sized for their application, as they may be required to carry a considerable current for several seconds. For specific information on conductor ratings see Conductor Ratings.
Earth Rods and Plates
In addition to the conductors outlined above, earth rods and plates or any combination thereof can be used to achieve an effective earth depending on the site conditions.

Earth rods take advantage of lower resistivity soils at greater depths than normal excavation will allow.
Earth plates are used to attain an effective earth in shallow soils with underlying rocks or in locations with large amounts of buried services. They can also provide protection at potentially dangerous places e.g. HV switching positions.
