ALLTEC Protection Pyramid

Why the Pyramid?
The ALLTEC Protection Pyramid® is a comprehensive three-tiered framework designed to protect facilities–both man and machine–from lightning and non-lightning induced transient voltage damage. Each level represents a solution utilized to protect facilities from harmful electrical events:

  • Tier I, grounding/earthing and bonding;
  • Tier II, surge suppression;

  • Tier III, lightning protection.

Rather than viewing these tiers as independent, we treat the layers as interlocking components. Only when all three tiers are designed, installed, and maintained as a total system, comprehensive facility protection is achievable.

Safeguard valuable assets, defend critical electronics, and protect business operations using the ALLTEC Protection Pyramid. Our 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

ALLTEC’s experienced and accredited engineering and project management teams apply this framework while working with clients to develop the best solutions for every situation. Our customized site design & engineering solutions use the entire pyramid to develop engineered solutions that encompass grounding systemsurge suppression, and lightning protection.

Grounding / Bonding

Tier I

The foundation 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.

Surge Suppression

Tier II

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.

Lightning Protection

Tier III

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.
