ALLTEC Protection Pyramid™

The ALLTEC Protection Pyramid™ provides a three-tier comprehensive facility approach for grounding/earthing & bonding, surge suppression, and lightning protection solutions. The Pyramid comes as close as humanly possible to protect both man and machine from lightning and non-lightning induced transient voltage damage.

Why the Pyramid?
 Each level of the ALLTEC Protection Pyramid™ represents a method utilized to protect facilities from damages caused by harmful electrical events. Rather than treating these tiers as independent, ALLTEC regards each layer as an interlocking component. When all three tiers are designed, installed, and maintained as a total system, comprehensive facility protection can be achieved.

Safeguard valuable assets, defend critical electronics, and protect businesses using the ALLTEC Protection Pyramid™. The ALLTEC Protection Pyramid™ uses ALLTEC’s proven products and services for grounding, surge suppression, and lightning protection to provide full infrastructure protection.

Comprehensive Three-tiered Approach

Our experienced and accredited Engineering and Project Management teams apply the three-tiered ALLTEC Protection Pyramid™ approach while working with leading international client companies to develop the best solutions for each and every situation. Our customized site design & engineering solutions uses the entire pyramid to develop engineered solutions that encompass the grounding system, surge suppression and lightning protection.

Tier 1 | Grounding System

The base of the ALLTEC Protection Pyramid begins with the installation of a stable, low resistance and low impedance grounding system to bond all electrically conductive surfaces together. Harmful electrical currents are safely redirected to earth and away from power lines, telephone lines, or data equipment. ALLTEC has specially designed the following products to lay a solid foundation for tier one of the ALLTEC Protection Pyramid.

Tier 2 | Surge Suppression

Building upon the grounding tier, ALLTEC’s second tier of protection comes from properly installed surge protection devices, which reduces and/or eliminates the magnitude of random, high energy, short duration electrical power anomalies. These occurrences are typically caused by atmospheric phenomena (lightning strikes), utility switching, inductive loads, and internally generated transient voltages. The ALLTEC Protection Pyramid™ relies on DynaShield surge suppression devices to meet the demands required for tier two protections.

Tier 3 | Lightning Protection

Finally, a well-designed, customized lightning protection system will be installed to safeguard facilities from direct lightning strikes. Traditional lightning protection methods as well as some of the most advanced technologies are available from ALLTEC.
