Across industries, the power of lightning strikes to injure personnel, destroy assets, and disrupt processes through fire, explosion, or electrical damage is clear. Thus a proper lightning protection design is very important to ensure increased protection of a building against lightning and its effects.
The most important aspect of understanding in lightning protection design is that – not only a direct lightning strike acts as a potential threat to the structure but also more frequently, electronic equipment is damaged by surges caused by remote lightning discharges.
A well designed lightning protection design system will:
Lightning Eliminators & Consultant Inc. offers a complete and comprehensive lightning protection design and installation that complies with international standards and includes a ‘no strike’ warranty.
How we do this?
DAS is the latest design in lightning dissipation technology. Science and experience show that LEC’s Charge Dissipation Terminals, and the structures on which they are installed, are much less likely to sustain a direct lightning strike than unprotected structures or structures with traditional lightning protection systems.

A special note on architectural concerns
Many mission-critical buildings—police and fire stations, for example—have a public face that requires sensitivity to architectural aesthetics. Conductor cables usually can be installed within a building or its walls; exposed cables can be aligned with the building’s lines to minimize any unsightly appearance.
However, successful design requires the collaboration of the building’s architect and general contractor with our designer and installer early in the building design process to help assure the lightning protection design will meet the project’s aesthetic requirements and be affordable.
