Lightning Protection For Your Building

ETS Lightning Protection For Buildings

Travelling at 14,000 miles per hour, a lightning strike can heat the surrounding air so it’s five times hotter than the sun. Packing in roughly 1 billion joules of power, it could power a 60-watt lightbulb for six months.

Around 300,000 lightning strikes hit the ground in Britain every year with around 30% causing significant damage. We also have a one in three million chance of getting struck by lightning, which might sound low, but it’s still more likely than winning the lottery.

At ETS Cable Components we offer the best earthing and lightning protection products, so you can easily protect critical systems and buildings in event of over-voltage lightning strikes.

Lightning can cause significant problems for many companies, causing damage to buildings and critical equipment.

Lightning is attracted to tall landmarks like the Empire State Building, which has been hit hundreds of times, because it chooses the shortest route to the ground. Since it can blow up a tree, vaporising its sap and causing the trunk to explode, imagine how much damage it can do to a building.

At ETS Cable Components our lightning protection products include Copper Bonded Earth Rods, Ground Enhancement Materials, Earth Bars, and Earthing Rods and Bonds. We are a trusted stockist and distributor of nVent ERICO Cadweld which has devised a Six Point Protection Plan for lightning protection.
