Earth pits provide a secure and user friendly access point for maintenance purposes and the periodical measuring of electrical resistance of a buried earthing system.

In order to complete routine measurements of electrical resistance simply remove the lid from the installed earth pit and connect a lead from the resistance meter to the earthing conductor.

ILSE offers a range of earth pits which are suitable for remote locations through to
