Safeguarding High Rise Buildings in Malaysia​


In Malaysia, the threat of lightning strikes is a serious concern, especially for high rise buildings that dominate the skyline of cities like Kuala Lumpur and Penang. The frequency of thunderstorms and the country’s geographical location make it highly susceptible to lightning strikes. As a result, high rise building owners and developers are prioritizing lightning protection systems to ensure the safety of their structures, occupants, and valuable assets.

TAKO understands the gravity of lightning strikes and the devastating consequences they can have on high rise buildings. That’s why we have developed a comprehensive lightning protection system for high rise building that ensures the ultimate protection for your structure, irrespective of its location within Malaysia.

The Danger of Lightning Strikes in Malaysia

Lightning strikes pose a significant danger to property and personal safety throughout Malaysia. With its tropical climate and high lightning flash density, the risk of lightning-related incidents is a constant concern. In fact, Malaysia experiences a substantial number of lightning strikes each year, making it crucial for residents and businesses to be aware of the potential dangers.

The impact of lightning strikes can be devastating, resulting in substantial property damage and even loss of life. Buildings are particularly vulnerable, with lightning causing extensive destruction to structures, electrical systems, and appliances. Beyond the physical damage to buildings, lightning strikes can also have severe consequences for individuals. Direct lightning strikes can cause immediate injuries or even fatalities. The immense heat generated by a lightning bolt can lead to severe burns, cardiac arrest, and brain trauma. The electrical current can travel through various pathways, including plumbing pipes, phone lines, and electrical systems, putting occupants at risk even if they are not directly struck.

 It is crucial to note that lightning strikes can occur unexpectedly and without warning. As such, it is essential for individuals and businesses in Malaysia to take proactive measures to protect themselves and their property. Implementing proper lightning protection systems is paramount to mitigating the risks associated with lightning strikes.


Most lightning damage to buildings comes in the form of the following:

How Lightning Protection System Work

Lightning protection systems for high rise building are designed to safely capture lightning and divert it into the ground before it can cause damage. They consist of several key components that work together to provide a conductive path for the lightning current:

  • Air Terminals (Lightning Rods): These are typically metal rods installed on the roof to intercept direct lightning strikes. The rods have pointed tips that attract lightning and provide a preferential point for the strike.
  • Down Conductors: These thick copper or aluminum cables connect the air terminals to the grounding system, providing a safe path for the lightning current to follow. 
  • Grounding System: An array of ground rods hammered deep into the soil provides a low resistance path to dissipate the lightning into the earth. Proper grounding is crucial for an effective lightning protection system.
  • Surge Protection: Secondary conductors and surge protection devices are used to protect electrical and electronic systems from voltage spikes induced by nearby strikes.

When lightning hits the air terminal, the immense electrical current is conducted safely through the down conductor into the grounding system, bypassing the structure. Industry standards require lightning protection systems to be installed following strict codes and guidelines. Components must meet minimum size requirements and be properly bonded to provide electrical continuity. Regular inspection and maintenance is key to ensuring the system remains effective over time. With the right design and installation, a lightning protection system can capture lightning strikes and divert tens of thousands of amps harmlessly into the ground.

Benefits of Installing a Lightning Protection System

Installing a lightning protection system for high rise building on your property comes with numerous benefits that make it a wise investment. Here are some of the key advantages:

Lightning strikes can cause severe destruction to buildings and structures. When high voltage lightning current flows through your property, it can damage roofing, siding, electrical wiring, and other systems. An effective lightning protection system provides a safe path for lightning current to travel to the ground without causing damage along the way. This prevents costly repairs and replacements that would otherwise be necessary after a strike.

Sensitive electronic equipment and appliances in homes and businesses are vulnerable to lightning damage. A surge of lightning current can overload and fry delicate circuits and components. By installing lightning rods and a proper grounding system, you can ensure electronics and appliances remain protected, avoiding the frustration and expense of having to replace destroyed electronics after a lightning storm.

Lightning that travels through electrical wires and equipment can spark fires in buildings. In fact, lightning strikes are responsible for a significant portion of structural fires each year. With a professional lightning protection system, the risk of an electrical fire caused by lightning is greatly reduced. Preventing fires keeps both property and lives safe.

Most importantly, an effective lightning protection system helps protect the safety of people inside a structure. By providing a direct path to earth, lightning is safely directed away from occupants and living spaces. This minimizes the risks of electric shock and injury during a thunderstorm. Knowing your family and possessions are safe from harm provides invaluable peace of mind

It is important to note that the specific benefits of installing a lightning protection system for high rise building may vary depending on the size and type of the building, as well as the specific requirements and recommendations of the local authorities and industry standards.

Overall, installing a lightning protection system for high rise building by TAKO can help mitigate the risks associated with lightning strikes, protect property and occupants, and provide peace of mind.
