Earthing systems play a fundamental role in the efficient operation of surge protection devices

For full protection it is highly recommend that an earthing system is in place as it plays a vital role in co-ordinating your lightning and surge protection system together. This particular system is responsible for safely dispersing the lightning currents to ground as well as playing a fundamental role in the effective operation of surge protection devices.

A maximum resistance level of 10 ohms or less as recommended by BS 7430 “Earthing” needs to be achieved for full protection which why at Lightning Strike we use a wide range of materials in numerous configurations to achieve this.
