Earthing Plate or Strips and Earthing wires are used to make safety earth coonection at residence. We often get an electrical shock while touching a fridge, or door even if wall. This is due to bad earthing. Earthing strips provide an alternative path for the flow of current to save the users from getting electrical shock.
