System Design & Installation
While the phrase “lightning never strikes twice” is widely known, it is actually incorrect. The fact is that lightning can strike the same structure time and time again. The Eiffel Tower for instance was struck ten times during one lightning storm.
To fully protect a building from a direct or indirect lightning strike a risk assessment needs to be carried out. Once the need for lightning protection is established a system needs to be designed specific to the structure under review. At Nimbus, our service encompasses:
- System Design
- Test & Commissioning
- Early Streamer Emission Systems
- Transient/Surge Protection
The above services are 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).
