Lightning protection system
Any lightning can be classified as either an external protection system or an internal protection. To protect any given location from lightning, both of the systems have to be performed, the degree of the system in terms of technical specifications and finance is performed by conducting a risk analysis on the location considering variables such as dimension, location, daily occupancy etc
External Lightning Protection
In our arsenal we provide products meeting both NF and ISC standards; ESE air terminals, Franklin rods, Copper tape, Aluminium tape, Stainless steel tape, Down conductor clips, Test clamps, Test boxes, connecting clamps, ZnAl sheet support clips for tapes and many other Accessories.
A well designed earthing system is essential for any electrical installation to avoid the danger associated with fault currents, as established in the main earthing standards. Therefore, earthing protects both equipment and people against dangerous touch voltage. Particularly, the Earth Termination System is essential for Lightning Protection, since the lightning current should disperse there. Each down conductor must have an Earth Termination System, formed by conductive elements in contact with the soil and able to disperse the lightning current in it. Good earthing’s of Lightning Protection Systems should be able to withstand lightning currents and to disperse them quickly and safely.
Exothermic welding is a process that achieves the molecular binding among two or more metallic conductors by a chemical reaction. This molecular binding improves mechanical, electrical and anti-corrosion properties compared with any mechanical connection. Exothermic welding is the best way to make permanent, reliable and high conductivity connections for any installation requiring an earthing system.

Internal protection provides protection against electromagnetic impulses from lightning and to the electrical and electronic equipment located on the structures
- Protection for Power Lines
- Protection for Telephone Lines
- Protection for Data Lines
- Protection for CCTV cameras and related equipment
Preventive protection means having information in advance (from a storm detector) that allows the user to start temporary preventive measures before the storm begins. These measures will be deactivated after the storm. Preventive protection will be complementary to an installed Lightning Protection System (LPS) in certain situations, while in others it will be sufficient to act alone.
