Is it necessary to connect the joinery of a house in total self-construction to the equipotential bonding? Can the CONSUEL service ask for the grounding of all aluminum joinery in the case of a timber frame construction?

The standard NF C 15100 impose it on connection of metal joinery to the ground that if they are located in damp rooms (bathroom, kitchen, wc, laundry). This is called the "equipotential bonding". It is therefore not obliged, by law, to connect to the ground joineries other parts. But nothing prevents to do it, it is an additional security, even if, I grant you, the risks, with a house with frame wood, are more limited than with a house in traditional masonry.
