Lightning Protection

Lightning Protection Inspection and Certification

To ensure the ongoing safety and reliability of your lightning protection system, regular inspections and certifications are essential. Lightning strikes can be unpredictable, and your system must function flawlessly every time it is called upon. British Standards and work regulations require lightning conductor protection systems to be tested and inspected periodically.

Addressing Ground Condition Challenges

We understand that fluctuating ground conditions can impact the test results of lightning protection systems. Changes in weather and ground moisture levels can affect the earth resistance readings, leading to variations in system performance. Our inspections account for these challenges and provide a comprehensive evaluation of your system’s effectiveness.

The Importance of Regular Inspections

By scheduling regular inspections at eleven-month intervals, you can ensure a more accurate and comprehensive report over time. Eleven-month intervals result in a variation of seasons when the system is inspected and therefore a change in ground conditions. This typically shows varying resistance readings and highlights if the system does not fully meet the requirements across all seasons. In these situations, any adjustment to the lightning protection system can be promptly made, and the system brought up to full requirement. This approach maximises the safety of your building, mains electrical equipment, and occupants, even during periods of varying ground conditions.
