Lightning strikes approximately 10 times each second, around the world. Exactly where each lightning will strike is unpredictable, and their occurrence is unpreventable. What is in our control is the implementation of proper lightning protection systems in accordance with the nationals and international standard.
The conventional lightning rod aka Benjamin Franklin rod was the first to demonstrate that an electrically conductive path can safely channel lightning strikes from the top of a building into the earth. This lightning protection system has proved its effectiveness for ordinary facilities time and again.
Yet the lightning protection requirement of many structures especially in factories and industries exceed those provided by these conventional rods. As sensitive electronic now control vital functions including facility security, climate control, data storage, access systems, etc the vulnerability has increased. At the same time, the risk appears to be rising due to the occurrence of more frequent extreme weather events associated with climate change.
A direct lightning strike can cause physical damage and secondary effects of the lightning can and will damage electrical and electronic systems. Thus, the selected lightning protection system must be designed and implemented such that no form of lightning-related destruction, disruptive and reliability impairment phenomena can penetrate or enter the protected system.
While evaluating a particular site we consider the following points in order to provide the best level of lightning protection required for your needs:
Determining the level of lightning protection appropriate for each situation can be complex and require expert engineering expertise.
In order to prevent lightning from striking your facilities, Lightning Eliminators & Consultant Inc has developed an exclusive patented product line and a team of engineering specialists that can provide an array of solutions for maximum lightning protection.
