Lightning protection in Southampton

Did you know that on average, lightning will strike the earth three billion times a year? Many people think that being inside their property might protect them, but that is not the case. When lightning strikes the exterior of a building, the electronic energy will travel through the inside and can cause damage to the electrical works of that property.

How does a lightning protection system work?

When lightning strikes, it ‘seeks’ a path with the least resistance. Lightning protection systems do not necessarily attract lightning, it is used to conduct the electrical charge from a lightning strike and flow the current to the ground, away from buildings and reduce the risks of fires and damages. The low resistance path created by the system will deter the lightning from buildings and other structures. As lightning moves once it has struck, the system will work continuously until the flow of electrical charge has moved to the ground and away from you property.
