Reference: Grounding busbar/Equipotential bars

Reference information:
I searched one of the article nos. from your Swe reference and got these two references -- SEB-06 Art.nr. 545012 and got these two references, from the same Irish company it seems. They might lead you further along... Michael's answer seems in the ballpark.
