Frequently Asked Questions

It is a common misconception that lightning rods attract lightning. On the contrary, lightning rods or our lightning protection systems intercept and deflect the lightning strike. By doing so, lightning rods save your building and deflect the lightning to the ground instead.

Our comprehensive lightning protection system consists of more than just surge protection. To ensure the utmost structural safety of your building, our robust lightning protection system includes grounding networks to deflect the lightning away from the building.

Not really. Installing lightning protection systems is strictly for professionals with the certification, training, and qualification to do the job.

Since all buildings (especially tall ones) are very susceptible to lightning strikes, they require lightning protection. When assessing the risk of lightning, it is just as important to consider the purpose and contents of a building as it is to consider its location and construction. Lightning protection systems are commonly installed in:

Healthcare facilities
Office buildings
Manufacturing units
Shopping centres
High-rise residential buildings

No, you cannot. Most electricians are not trained to install lightning protection. Furthermore, it is important to note that electricians receive training specifically in accordance with the regulations set forth by the National Electric Code. This code differs from the standards established by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) for lightning rods.

All installations and other tasks related to lightning protection should be carried out only by lightning protection specialists listed with Underwriters Laboratories (UL) and certified by the Lightning Protection Institute. These specialists should also be well-versed with the NFPA and UL requirements for lightning.

The following information is crucial to install fool-proof earthing solutions for buildings:

Dimensions of the earthing site
Target earthing resistance
Results from a geo-electrical study
Resistive capacity of each stratum or layer in the ground

The following details are required to measure step and touch voltages:

Maximum short-circuit current
Duration taken by the protection systems to operate during a lightning strike
Type of strata or ground layer
Thickness of strata

The requirement for a lightning protection system (LPS) in buildings is not universal and depends on several factors, primarily the risk assessment. Buildings in areas prone to frequent thunderstorms, those with tall structures, or those housing sensitive equipment may benefit from LPS installation. Risk assessment, conducted by a qualified expert, considers factors such as geographical location, building height, occupancy, and local lightning activity to determine whether an LPS is necessary for a specific building. Compliance with local building codes and regulations is also a critical consideration in determining the mandatory nature of lightning protection systems.

The damages caused by lightning can be categorized into 2 types,

1) Direct effects of lightning strikes and

2) Indirect effects of lightning strikes

The external LPS will provide protection against the direct lightning strikes but the electronic equipment will remain unprotected against the indirect effects of lightning strikes. The indirect effects of lightning strikes cause damage due to the lightning impulse surges traveling through the power line and data lines.

Though we have a lightning-air terminal on our structure, We need to install surge protection devices to protect expensive sensitive equipment against lightning hazards.

IEC 62305 : 2010 is the standard being used for the lightning protection system. In that 4 parts are there.

IEC 62305 Part -1 explains about General principles of Lightning Protection

IEC 62305 Part - 2 explains Risk Management

IEC 62305 Part - 3 explains the design procedures and materials used for the External Lightning Protection System

IEC 62305 Part - 4 explains the Internal Lightning Protection System

As per IEC 62305 part -3, under clause 5.4.1 we should provide a dedicative earth pit for lightning arrester and those earth pits should be interconnected with the system earthing.
