Lightning Protection is a highly specialized trade that is governed by industry safety standards. Only a trained expert such as an LPI-certified contractor who specializes in lightning protection should install these systems. Design and installation are not a do-it-yourself project. Additionally, removal and reinstallation of Lightning Protection Systems should be performed by certified installers, not roofers. BLP is able to certify the system is up to date and currently designed to meet all of the latest industry standards.
UL Master Label Certifications & LPI-IP Certifications
UL Master Label certifications and LPI-IP certifications are available for all of our installations if our customers choose this option. Your lightning protection system will be inspected by a third-party inspection agency and a certification will be issued signifying compliance with current UL Standards.
BLP recommends the LPI-IP third-party inspection program. The LPI-IP program provides an all-inclusive inspection that will ensure the lightning protection system is installed correctly. For more information visit their website at www.LPI-IP.com.
For existing systems, we are available to conduct inspections to verify compliance with current standards. We will then arrange for a third-party inspection for certification or re-certification.
It is recommended that Lightning Protection Systems be visually inspected at least annually. In areas where there are severe climate changes, is might be necessary to inspect these systems more often. A complete, in-depth inspection of ALL systems should be completed every 3-5 years. It is recommended that critical systems by inspected every 1-3 years.
Keep BLP in mind for your necessary visual inspections. We will confirm the system is in good condition, there are no loose connections, no part of the system has been weakened by corrosion or vibration, all down conductors and ground terminals are intact, there have been no alterations or additions which require additional protection, and the system complies with the current edition of the Lightning Protection Standard.
