Lightning Protection Systems

Earthing specialists are key in developing the right solutions to overcome potential risks associated with electricity. These solutions, dependant on risk may vary and range from the design and installation of lightning and surge protection right through to the use of sophisticated soil resistivity testing to determine the extent and performance of an earthing system.

Inviting Earthing Specialists

Correctly designed and installed earthing systems are essential part of an electrical installation which safeguards buildings from damage associated with lightning strikes, physical infrastructure from the disruptive effects of electromagnetic impulses and most importantly, injury or even life through the presence of dangerous voltages.
