Lightning Protection:

Lightning Strikes to and/or nearby structures are very hazardous to both the structures and the people within them. Damage can be caused to people caused by step and voltage injuries; physical damage caused by fires and or explosions. Lightning strikes can also cause mechanical failure to operational equipment within buildings which is called Lightning Electromagnetic Impulse. These risks highlight the need for professional Lightning Protection Systems to be installed within high risk buildings. Latest Lightning Protection Systems that conform to BS 62305:2006 are essential in reducing the risk of damage to a structure and the systems and people within.

Whether a new project, existing building or a historical property, our approach lightning protection is to pass on the benefits of our experience in areas such as health and safety, access, materials choice and programming as we work with clients’ teams to deliver competitively costed, BS or IEEE compliant designs.
