A lightning protection system, also known as a lightning arrestor, is a system designed to protect buildings, structures and people from destruction, fires and explosions caused by lightning. It is a vital investment for all sites where people are present or economic activity takes place.

How does lightning protection work?

The working principle of lightning protection is simple but effective.

  1. Lightning interception: lightning receivers mounted at the highest points of the protected object catch the lightning.
  2. Create a path: Conductors, called power conductors, carry the lightning charge from the lightning receiver safely down the building.
  3. Grounding: A grounding system, made up of a network of electrodes buried in the ground, absorbs the charge and dissipates it.

Types of lightning protection systems

There are two basic types of lightning protection systems:

  • Passive: These systems rely on lightning receivers and power conductors to naturally conduct the lightning's charge.
  • Active: These systems use an early lightning detection device that ionizes the air and creates a channel through which the lightning is safely conducted.

Advantages of lightning protection

Installing a lightning protection system brings a number of benefits:

  • Protection of people and property: lightning protection protects buildings, structures and people from destruction, fires, explosions and other hazards caused by lightning.
  • Lightning protection can protect electronic devices from damage caused by lightning-induced surges.
  • Peace of mind: knowing your site is protected from lightning gives you peace of mind and security.
