An air terminal system (lightning rod) is a device that is put in place on purpose to stop lightning strikes. It is meant to catch the lightning before it can do any damage as it is the upper part of the electrical installation of lightning protection system accessories. 

A lightning conductor helps to protect buildings from being hit by lightning. It works by taking the electrical charge from the lightning and moving it safely into the ground. This keeps the building safe and prevents the charge from building up on it.

A ground connection (electrode) or ground rod (copper or aluminium) and ground plate takes advantage of the negative electrical charge of the ground to make positive electricity neutral. When you walk on the ground, you are interacting with its negative charge, which helps to balance out any positive charge in your body.

Bonding helps to prevent electric shocks when there is a problem with the electrical system. It does this by connecting metal parts together with bonding conductors. This reduces the amount of electrical charge and makes it safer to touch the metal parts.

Lightning/thunder arresters do not stop lightning. However, it helps to protect equipment from damage. It works by diverting the lightning and reducing the electrical charge. This keeps the equipment safe and prevents any harm.

How many type of lightning protection are there?

There are two types of lightning protection systems that can protect buildings and structures from lightning strikes:

Conventional lightning protection systems: These systems use lightning rods, conductors, and grounding systems to provide a safe path for the lightning current to flow to the ground. When lightning strikes, the lightning rods on the highest points of the building or structure attract the lightning bolt, and the conductors carry the current safely to the grounding system, which then dissipates the electrical charge into the ground.

Early Streamer Emission (ESE) lightning protection systems: These systems use a mast or pole with a metallic tip that emits a streamer to intercept lightning strikes before they reach the protected structure. The streamer is triggered by an electronic device that detects the approach of the lightning bolt. By intercepting the lightning strikes at a greater distance from the protected structure, ESE systems aim to provide better protection against electrical surges.

While traditional systems have been in use for a long time and are well established, ESE systems are gaining popularity due to their ability to protect larger areas and intercept lightning strikes at a greater distance from the protected structure. However, the effectiveness of ESE systems is still debatable, and the selection of a lightning protection system is determined by the specific needs and requirements of the building or structure being protected.

Earthing and lightning protection systems are essential to safeguarding people, buildings, and electrical equipment from the damaging effects of lightning. However, to function properly, lightning protection systems must be effectively installed and maintained.

It is the best time to install grounding and lightning protection systems parallelly with the building process for the building or structure. As a result, the system can be integrated into the electrical design of the building from the start. It is also critical that qualified professionals install the system and adhere to recognised codes and standards according to each country’s requirements.

It’s critical to check up on a regular basis to ensure they’re in good working order. If there is any damage or corrosion in the system, it should be repaired as soon as possible. Lightning protection systems should be tested on a regular basis to ensure they are effective. Remember that And, if any changes are made to the building or structure that may affect the system’s effectiveness, a qualified professional should review it.

Following these guidelines for installation and maintenance can ensure that external and internal lightning protection are working correctly and are providing the necessary protection against lightning strikes. 

By choosing TAKO team for the installation and maintenance,  clients can have peace of mind knowing that their systems are being installed and maintained by qualified professionals who have their safety and well-being in mind. 

With TAKO team, clients can be assured that their buildings and electrical equipment are well protected against the harmful effects of lightning strikes. Moreover, TAKO can help you to optimize the costs of lightning protection system installation.
