Earthing Systems

The earthing system plays a vital role in a co-ordinated lightning and surge protection system. It is responsible for safely dissipating the lightning currents to ground, but just as importantly, it plays a fundamental role in the efficient operation of surge protection devices.

Lightning protection earthing systems use a wide range of materials in numerous configurations to achieve a maximum resistance level of 10 ohms or less as recommended by BS 7430 “Earthing”

Lightning Strike’s experts can:

  • Conduct soil resistivity measurements for designing new systems
  • Design earthing systems for any application, including equipotential bonding
  • Advise on the best type of materials to use in the existing conditions
  • Supply all the materials needed for installation
  • Check the condition of existing earthing systems
  • Test for continuity across individual earthing systems
