Lightning is a giant spark of electricity in the atmosphere or between the atmosphere and the ground. In the initial stage of its development, air acts as an insulator between the positive and negative charge, however when the difference in charge becomes too great, this insulating capacity of the air breaks down and there is a rapid discharge of electricity that we know as lightning.
At LEC we are passionate about providing integrated products, services and solutions in line with lightning protection and prevention. For almost half a century LEC has helped companies around the world to increase their safety, bottom line and reliability using a combination of advanced testing services coupled with superior lightning, surge and grounding / earthing products.
Innovation is our core focus that has ensured our success.
Our (patented) Dissipation Array System is a type of charge transfer device – it reduces electrical fields within the protected zone to below those levels outside the protected zone. Our excellent application of engineering and physics has assisted in defending most Global 1000 companies from the potentially disaterous effects of lightning strikes.
Operating on both an international and domestic level we share our extensive years of expert knowledge in innovative systems, consulting services and research. We stand as industry leaders for all facets associated with the influence of lightning strikes – prevention, control, reduction of risk, and effective management.
