What is a Lightning Rod?

A lightning rod, also known as a lightning conductor, is a metal rod or similar object mounted on top of a building and electrically connected to the ground through a wire to protect the building in the event of lightning. If lightning strikes, it will preferentially strike the rod and be conducted harmlessly to ground through the wire, instead of passing through the building, where it could start a fire or cause electrocution.

The Importance of Lightning Rods

Lightning rods play a crucial role in protecting properties from the devastating effects of lightning strikes. They provide a path of least resistance for lightning to follow, directing it safely into the ground and away from the structure. This can prevent fires, structural damage, and electrical issues that can result from a lightning strike.
