33% of Business are Affected by Lightning
More so than problems caused by floods, fire, explosions, hurricane, earthquakes, and violence.
The average homeowner lightning claim in the U.S. is over $5,000.
(The Insurance Information Institute)
Lightning accounts for more than one billion dollars annually in structural damage to buildings in the U.S.
(Underwriters Laboratories, Inc.)
Provides a low resistance path to safely ground destructive activity caused by lightning.
The system safely intercepts and directs the lightning strike underground without affecting the structure of the building, or occupants/contents that may be inside.
Redirects lightning strikes to avoid any chance of fire.
Multiple Federal Agencies such as the FAA, NAA, DoE, and DoD require these systems in order to meet Federal Lightning Protection Standards to save buildings, structures, and most importantly, people.
Why a Lightning Protection System?
Frequently Asked Questions
What is a LPS system?
A lightning protection system serves to prevent damage to properties from the effects of lightning strikes. It is made up of strike termination devices, conductors, bonding, grounding, and surge protection.
How does a LPS system work?
Copper and aluminum materials are used in lightning protection systems and are highly conductive. This means they are able to provide a low resistance path to safely ground the dangerous electricity that comes from lightning. With an LPS system in place, lightning is able to be redirected to the ground, not impacting or causing damage to structures, people, or content.
Can a TV antenna or trees protect my property from lightning?
No, trees are poor conductors of electricity meaning they do not ground properly, and instead deflecting the strike which can damage the side of your property. TV antennas can actually attract a lightning strike, and if they are not grounded properly, they will severely damage your house.
