    P@T was the cheapest I could find, was worth it there, they were pretty jacked up.

    Thnx for the heads up. I heard someone closer to me is cheaper, but looking at P&T they look professional.
    I am guessing you did the masters under option 1 - 3? not 4?

    The installation of this earthing Terminal has been a requirement for some time now in new installations.
    I have never seen one.
    I have just read an article that specifically states that it is a requirement for an earthing Terminal to be fitted into existing installations, Sparks Magazine - April 2015 - Page 18. "The earthing terminal for other services - a piece in the jigsaw.
    Herwith the link: http://crown.co.za/images/magazines/...April_2015.pdf

    My question is "What does this item look like and where does one put it in a domestic installation?

    I cant imagine an Earth Terminal bolted onto the DB Facia plate and having 5 copper wires dangling from it would compliment the decor of the lounge in a mid-floor townhouse unit.

    Who has installed one of these and how do you go about it.
    I believe it has to be bonded to the consumers earth terminal via a 6mm copper wire?

    SANS 10142-1 2017 update

    In SANS-10142-1 (2017), Section 6.11.5 now reads " A readily accessible earthing terminal may be provided...

    So it looks like this has become optional then. Am I right?

    There is still lots about putting up labels to indicate where it is and to mark it.

    Thanks.

    Correct.
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.
