Lightning protection is a complex of technical solutions and specialized equipment, used to prevent fires and protect buildings, equipment and people inside the building from direct lightning strikes and secondary impacts.
Nowadays, indoor lighting protection has become very important. This is explained by the fact, that very sensitive and expensive equipment -computers, mobile phones, new generation TV sets, boilers with electronic control unit, washing machines, dishwashers, security systems, cameras and other equipment that contains highly sensitive semiconductor devices, is being produced. We offer to install both active and passive lighting protection.
Active lighting protection works by attracting the lightning strike. An electromagnetic oscillation detector and ion generator are attached to the receiver pin. If a high electromagnetic field is detected in the air, it activates an ion generator. Its radiation extends the lightning rod and quickly provokes the discharge of the strike. The active lighting protection system is cheaper and easier to install that passive protection.
A passive lighting protection receiver is a shaped steel rod as thick as your little finger. It rises above the supporting structures, receives the lightning strike, brings it to the ground using grounding wires, and dissipates it in the background.
ach year, worldwide, lightning strikes about 16. It is about 44 lighting per day. Direct lighting strike is unsafe for humans and often leads to death. In turn, a lightning strike can result in fire, destruction of the building or equipment, for instance, computer equipment failure. A strong electromagnetic field is generated during a lightning strike, which affects the equipment. Assessment of the lighting strike possibility and possible related damage extent is critical. The applicable standards should carry out lighting protection installation. Properly and well-planned installation of lightning protection equipment helps reduce the risk of fire, health risks and hazards to life, and electronics damage risk.
