Lightning Protection Service and installation
What are the effects of lightning flashes?
The protection system carry the current safely to earth and ensure the continued functionality of equipment, protect the building itself and ensure the safety of any people inside. Lightning protection systems are designed for high frequency applications, with lightning current peaking over a very short time period.
A lightning protection system designed and installed to the latest British Standard reduces the risk of damage to a structure and the systems and people within it.
Even if your building has stood for 50 years and has never been hit by lightning that doesn’t reduce the risk of it being hit in the future. The probability of a strike and whether protection is needed should be shown up in a throrough risk assessment in accordance with the British Standard BS EN 62305: 2006 Part 2.
