Lightning Protection Systems

A bolt of lightning has the power to tear through buildings, explode walls made of brick and concrete, disturb steel and ignite deadly fires. The cost of this damage can be enormous.

Each year lightning destroys more property and causes more injuries than hurricanes, floods and tornadoes combined. It can cause structural damage to buildings, destroy electronics and damage electrical and communication systems. Fortunately, lightning is the only force of nature for which affordable and reliable protection is available.

Lightning protection systems are used to prevent or lessen damage to structures done by lightning strikes. They mitigate the fire hazard which lightning strikes pose to structures by providing a low-impedance path for the lightning current to lessen the heating effect of current flowing through flammable structural materials.

Most lightning protection systems include a network of lightning rods, metal conductors, and ground electrodes designed to provide a low resistance path to ground for potential strikes.
