A very strong current
Lightning is among nature’s most destructive and powerful forces. The electrical discharges can be very powerful, ranging from a few thousand amps to more than 200,000 amps. This is enough to power 500,000 100-watt bulbs. It’s true that lightning discharges last for an incredibly short amount of time. However, they’re more than capable of causing destruction and damage.
Direct lightning strikes and their effects are obvious. The current can destroy trees and severely damage buildings. Then we have the secondary effects. These are high voltage spikes which we refer to as transient overvoltages. They don’t last for very long but can cause damage to the electronics inside a property. To prevent any undesirable situations, you’re going to need a lightning protection system in place.
Lightning conductor systems don’t function by attracting or repelling the current. Instead, they intercept and reroute the energy along a network of low resistance conductors. Following this, they discharge it right into the earth. The ground absorbs the current safely. Many insurance companies, building contractors, and architects recommend these systems.
Right now, the chances of your home being hit by lightning might appear to be slim. After all, the average number of strikes in the UK per year is low in comparison to many other countries because the climate is mild. However, they do still happen. It is better to be safe than sorry.
For years, we have done all we can to supply the finest lightning conductor systems. Our solutions will keep properties and other structures safe from the adverse affects of lightning.
