LPS Lightning Conductors

Lightning protection systems (LPS) transfers the dangerous lightning currents safely to the ground. These systems usually includes the following: air termination, down LPS Lightning Conductors conductor and an earth termination system which is also better known as a grounding or lightning protection grounding system that is intended to

Lightning Protection Companies

May people ask lightning protection companies why lightning protection is so important? The function of a well-designed lightning protection system is to intercept, conduct and disperse a lightning strike safely to earth. Step and touch voltages are generated from a lightning strike and can cause injury, or

What Lightning Protection Companies Do

Proper protection from lightning strike damage is a major consideration for most companies and thus require the expertise of lightning protection companies. A typical lightning strike event include currents of around 10,000 to 50,000 amps with a 10% to 90% rise-time of between 1 and

Weerlig

Weerlig is ‘n uiters kragtige natuurlike verskynsel van elektrostatiese ontlading wat tydens ‘n donderstorm ontstaan. Die skielike ontlading gaan gepaard met die uitstraling van sigbare lig (weerlig) asook ander vorme van elektromagnetiese straling. Die elektriese stroom wat deur die lug vloei verhit die lug baie
