Lightning strikes to buildings can be more than damaging to structures. They are hazardous to the people and other contents within them.
Possible types of damage caused by lightning strikes include
- Injuries to humans and animals
- Physical damage caused by fire and explosion, and
- Electrical systems failure caused by ElectroMagnetic Pulse (EMP).
Lightning protection is essential for any ‘at risk’ structure where human life, livestock and building contents matter.
A lightning protection system designed to British Standard BS EN 62305 will reduce damage risk to any structure and the systems and people within the structure that the protection system is installed to protect.
Lightning protection services offered by Thunderbolt Test and Maintenance include
- Risk Assessment
- Lightning Protection Installation
- Lightning Protection Testing
- Lightning Protection Maintenance,
- Earthing, and
- Rope Access
Lightning protection systems divert high levels of electrical current generated by lightning strikes. We design and build full lightning protection systems that include surge protection to reduce risk to building contents.
The sophisticated lightning protection systems designed, built and maintained by Thunderbolt Test & Maintenance meet the official British Standards for lightning protection.
