Lightning protection

Service and Maintenance

Regular inspections of lightning protection and surge protection systems are vital to ensuring they are functioning and able to absorb the energy generated by these events.

To provide adequate protection, roof-top lightning protection systems must have a sufficiently low resistance path to Earth.  Exposed to the harshest of weather these components can be damaged and degraded to the point that they will not protect some or all of your installation.  Annual checks ensure that the lightning protection components are in good condition and have an adequate bond to Earth, providing the necessary protection to buildings and people.

Surge protection systems must also be inspected to ensure that the effects of surges have not depleted their ability to absorb excess electrical energy.  Power
Protect can perform routine surge protection inspections as a separate service or included with an annual switchboard maintenance.
