    Lightning Protection

    The phrase “lightning never strikes twice” is not correct. The fact is that lightning can strike the same structure time and time again. We design, install, test and commission lightning protection systems in strict compliance with the criteria and recommendations as described in BS EN 62305 (Protection Against Lightning), BS 6651:1999 (The Protection of Structures Against Lightning) and BS 7430:2015 (Earthing).

    The current British Standard Code of Practice regarding earthing is BS 7430:1998 (ISBN 0 580 28229 5). We conduct soil resistivity surveys (carried out to determine site specific earthing requirements), design and install site-specific earthing systems.

    Early Streamer Emission Systems

    There are several lightning protection systems which are extensively used world-wide which do not form part of the current British Standard BS EN 62305:2006. These systems provide an alternative solution to protecting structures where the installations of a BS System may not be feasible or viable.

    Surge Protection

    Power surges or transient overvoltages can be caused in two ways: either as the secondary effect of a lightning strike (up to a kilometre away), or by the electrical switching of large inductive loads (such as motors and transformers). Nimbus can protect you.

    Testing and Maintenance

    All structures require some degree of maintenance ranging from roof fabric refurbishment to the addition of new roof mounted plant and equipment. In such circumstances the existing lightning protection system will be affected and require modification.

    Specialist Welding

    Exothermic welding, often called Cadwelding or FurseWeld (from W.J.Furse – a leading earthing equipment supplier) is a cost efficient method of making large or small numbers of high quality electrical connections.
