Stainless steel tape ELB or metal strap for grounding of shielding stainless steel mesh, reinforcing mesh and shielding fleece.
This stainless steel punched tape has a length of 10 meters and is intended for grounding of electrically conductive surfaces by means of shielding reinforcing mesh, shielding stainless steel mesh or shielding shielding fleece. This metal strip is suitable for processing flush-mounted (eg under the parquet, laminate or plasterboard) and in principle it is ideally suited for earthing in drywall.
Processing of the stainless steel tape ELB or metal strap
The material webs made of reinforcing mesh, stainless steel mesh or shielding fleece are rolled out on the surface, positioned overlapping by 5 – 10 cm and then fixed or glued to the substrate. Then this stainless steel tape is used. In order to guarantee the electrical conductivity for the grounding of all individual material webs, the metal strap is screwed as often as possible across the entire web with the substrate. This is especially true for the overlapping places. As a result, the individual webs made of reinforcing fabric, stainless steel mesh or fleece are pressed together with pressure and thus a good conductivity created (even if then in the case of the soil of the screed is poured).
To fix the metal strip on the shielding fabric commercially available screws can be used. We recommend screw fixing at least every 20 cm along the perforated belt.

Grounding a Faraday cage is mandatory!
The grounding of a Faraday cage is imperative. This is also a legal requirement – the legislator writes that an electrically conductive surface must be earthed for reasons of personal safety. This is about the mandatory potential equalization (up to the FI circuit breaker) which results from the “requirements for protection against electric shock” and is binding in a DIN VDE regulation.
