Our Expertise

Corporate Electric has the expertise to help protect your building and equipment from the damage that can be caused by lightning. Lightning protection systems divert the high levels of electrical current generated by lightning strikes and carry the current safely to earth, ensuring the continued functioning of equipment, the protection of the building or structure, and the safety of the people inside.

We offer the following lightning protection services:

  • Site survey
  • Design, including recommendations for lightning surge protection
  • Material supply, including surge protection devices
  • Installation
  • Testing
  • Periodic inspection and maintenance
A lightning strike on a building has the potential to cause expensive structural damage.  In addition there is the loss of turnover, downtime and liability that occurs when businesses are forced to shut down to repair lightning damage.

A lightning protection system is composed of three main components:

  • Rods or 'Air Terminals' - The small, vertical protrusions designed to act as the 'terminal' for a lightning discharge.
  • Conductor Cables - Heavy cables that carry lightning current from the rods to the ground. Cables run along the tops and around the edges of the roofs, then down one of more corners of a building to the ground rod(s).
  • Ground Rods - Long, thick, heavy rods buried deep into the earth around a protected structure. The conductor cables are connected to these rods to complete a safe path for a lightning discharge around a structure.
