Components of a Lightning Protection Grounding System

Grounding System

Air Terminals System (Lightning Rods):

This component plays a crucial role in grounding systems by using lightning rods to attract and safely redirect lightning strikes. Lightning rods are strategically installed to provide a controlled path for the discharge of electrical energy, thereby protecting structures and equipment.

Lightning Conductors:

Lightning conductors are essential in safely channeling electrical energy to the ground. Carefully selected conductive materials and precise placement ensure a controlled path from the lightning rods, preventing potential damage to sensitive equipment.

Ground Connections (Earth Electrodes):

Foundational to effective grounding, earth electrodes involve the installation of various grounding systems. These systems are strategically placed to optimize conductivity, creating a reliable path for electrical energy to dissipate safely into the ground.


Bonding is a critical concept in grounding, involving the connection of various elements within a structure to prevent potential differences. This step ensures seamless electrical current flow, reducing the risk of electrical shocks and equipment damage.

Lightning Arresters (Surge Protectors):

Surge protectors, also known as lightning arresters, divert lightning energy away from sensitive equipment. Integrated strategically, these devices protect against potential damage caused by power surges, enhancing the overall effectiveness of the grounding solution.

TAKO’s Approach
