Lightning Protection

Lightning Protection

The function of a lightning protection system is to offer a safe low resistance path for currents caused by a lightning strike to travel to ground.

With a lightning protection system the energy travels a safe alternative path away from the structure or building being protected. This current is then safely discharged underground, preventing damage to property and equipment that is associated with the energy of a lightning strike.

A direct lightning strike can cause severe damage to a building's structure and its internal electronic systems putting lives at risk.

  • We undertake risk assessments in accordance with BS EN 62305 to identify the exact level of protection required.
  • Carry out soil resistivity surveys with CDEGS software reports to provide the best possible solutions in areas of poor ground quality.
  • Deliver a full design, installation and maintenance package.
  • Identify surge protection requirements and solutions.
  • Provide technical advice and support.
  • United Kingdom Wide Coverage.
