SNAPJoiner products ensure effective grounding

Global designer, manufacturer, Dirak has expanded its Snap-Joiner product offering to include a joiner with an integral grounding clip to address the growing global concern for grounding in electrical applications across many industries.

The product combines the function of mechanically connecting two sheet metal panels together while simultaneously creating an automatic and secure metal-to-metal connection between two coated or uncoated sheet metal panels. So just one of the two panels has to be grounded.

The teeth of the grounding clip are designed to ensure penetration of painted or powder-coated surfaces therefore establishing an electrical connection between the merged panels in all applications. After installation, the grounding clip is still visible, allowing for visual inspection. If the grounding clip is present, the connection is present.

An actuation tool can be inserted into the slot on the face of the 1-043 Snap-Joiner. Once the tool is inserted and turned clockwise, the tool remains captive in the slot allowing the user to pull the product from the panel.

Meet Dirak at the FAST Exhibition, October 21st at the National Motorcycle Museum, adjacent to the NEC in Birmingham.
