Products for Earthing and Lightning Protection

Did you know positive lightning strikes are five times more powerful than negative ones?

Most lightning strikes average at 2-3 miles long and carry a powerful current of 10000 Amps at 100 million volts, which can exert a huge amount of damage. This amount of energy is so strong it could power a 100 watt light bulb for 90 days!

It is no wonder that lightning protection is so important for higher buildings. Unfortunately, the old adage ‘lightning only strikes once’ is a myth: the Empire State building, for example, was once struck 8 times in 24 minutes.

Lightning is most attracted to tall buildings which provide the quickest route to earth and the Empire State building certainly fits the bill. Fortunately, like most buildings of this height, it has the best lightning protection available.

We can help make sure your building is properly equipped.
