Lightning Protection Systems
A lightning protection system is designed to protect a structure from damage by intercepting such strikes and safely passing their extremely high voltage currents to “ground.” This system includes a network of air terminals, bonding conductors, and ground electrodes designed to provide a low impedance path to ground against potential strikes.
Each year thousands of properties are damaged or destroyed by lightning. Lightning accounts for more than one billion dollars annually in structural damage to buildings in the United States. What is not reported is the loss of business, the downtime and liability that occurs when businesses or commercial tenants are forced to shut down to repair lightning damage. Insurers now require higher levels of safety for commercial buildings, schools, hospitals, institutions, historic landmarks, sports arenas and other public venues, including the installation of lightning protection systems.
