Thunderstorms occur virtually everywhere and that puts any facility at risk. The state-of-the-art certified lightning protection system is a part of the electrical system design of thousands of commercial and industrial facilities worldwide and is designed to maximize the protection of life and property.
‘An industrial electric shock can carry between 20 to 63 kilovolts, but a lightning strike delivers a whopping 300 kilovolts.’
Electric currents from lightning strikes maintain a shorter duration (a few milliseconds per strike) than an industrial shock. A human, when exposed to a lightning strike, can result in death or injury by making the victim fall or can result in burns. In addition to the death threat, a lightning strike to an unprotected facility can be disastrous as well. It could explode bricks, ignite fire, sidewalls, framings, and induce harmful electrical surges that can destroy sensitive electronics.
To prevent this kind of lightning damage to a structure, a complete lightning protection system is the best way to dissipate the dangerous electrical discharge.
Protecting your business from lightning damage should always be in the back of a business owner’s mind and like mentioned above, a lightning strike is definitely disastrous for an unprotected facility.
Fortunately, there are a number of things you can do to prepare yourself and your business for a lightning strike
1.Lightning protection system
The very best protection from lightning damage to a facility comes from Lightning Eliminator’s lightning protection system. DAS (Dissipation Array system) works on charge transfer technology and prevents direct strikes within the area of protection. As for indirect strikes or side flashes, it will safely direct it through or around the building without allowing the excess current to damage or destroy electronics inside.
2.Surge protection system
It’s used between the wall outlets and the electronics in a facility. Our patented products protect devices inside your building form dangerous voltage spikes, whether issued from an indirect lightning strike, a side flash or some form of issue with utility lines. Lightning Eliminators offer a full line of surge protection devices for all of your critical applications, backed by expert consulting and support.
