A bolt of lightning can generate up to 100 million volts of
electricity and has the power to completely destroy buildings,
brick, concrete, and steel – as well as ignite deadly fires.
The additional losses to building/company owners that result
from equipment damage, business interruptions, and personal
injury can be astronomical. Because of this, planning for the
protection of a property from lightning has become a must at
the pre-construction phase.
A properly installed lightning protection system can minimize
the threat to your business. In many states, schools, hospitals,
airports, government buildings, and other named facilities are
required by law to have lightning protection systems. More and more,
this is becoming a specified requirement of the pre-construction phase
in order to protect structures (and their inhabitants) from the
destructive forces of lightning.
