Surge Protection
Direct and Indirect Lightning Strikes on a structure can generate a Surge in electrical power or a Transient Overvoltage. This power surge can have a devastating effect on the buildings electronic equipment anywhere inside the building. They can cause considerable damage to electrical and electronic systems and equipment, leading to the disruption of operational and sometimes even critical services, and resulting in expensive down time and repair costs.

Test, Inspection & Maintenance
The Electricity at work regulations 1989 require that a lightning protection systems are regularly tested in accordance with BS6651:1999 or BSEN 62305:2011. In Order to gain the most from your investment and ensure that the Lightning Protection system installed on the structure is fit for purpose BSEN 62305 ‘Protection Against Lightning’ states that Lightning Protection Systems should be visually inspected, tested and maintained on a regular basis.

During an inspection our highly trained engineers will check that the lightning protection system is in a sound electrical and mechanical state, reporting any defects and taking note of any new items of plant or metal work that requires incorporating into the Lightning Protection System.
