Braided Microfilament Ground Straps

Braided Microfilament Ground Straps

Weight-Saving ArmorLite™ Microfilament Solutions for ESD, Lightning Strike, and Aircraft Electrical Power Applications

Lightning strikes, static electricity, and transient electrical currents from power systems have enough electrical potential to cause discharge on an aircraft that can ignite ground fuelling equipment or fry avionics gear. These events are managed in aircraft, Navy ships, next-generation eVTOL air taxis, and elsewhere via electrical bonding. Flexible bonding straps connect equipment, airframes, and structural elements to flight control surfaces to conduct destructive electrical surges to ground or bus bar components capable of absorbing the transient voltage.

Glenair designs and supplies a broad range of lightweight braided ground strap technologies, from our signature ArmorLite™ microfilament braided material for both commercial and military applications.
