Swage Grounding Accessories

AFL introduces our new line of Swage Grounding Accessories. Grounding accessories are installed in an underground grid layout before a substation is constructed and are designed to discharge the over-voltages from overhead ground wires or the lightning masts into the ground.

Complementing the entire substation family, the new Swage grounding products – plus our existing Swage bus and cable accessories – allow electric utilities to install accessories faster and more efficiently without the need for a certified welder. Swaging is the ideal solution for areas with shortages on qualified welders or when inclement weather conditions prohibit installation.
