Securing investments, operations, and personnel against direct lightning strikes is critical for any organization. ALLTEC’s TerraStat® Charge Dissipation Terminals, TerraStreamer®Early Streamer Emission Terminals, Lightning Strike Counters, Catenary Systems, and traditional lightning protection components each have their own unique methods of effectively protecting your people and facility from lightning damages and injury.
A properly installed lightning protection system (or LPS) is over 98% effective in preventing damage associated with a lightning strike. Installation of an LPS is a tried and true method of protection that has been used for more than a century. An organization can most effectively approach and resolve the concerns of safety and power quality issues by utilizing multiple methods of protection and the complete facility approach employed by the solution specialists at ALLTEC.As one major customer tells us, “We used to get 100 lightning events per year affecting our facility. Once ALLTEC analyzed our infrastructure and engineered a system solution only 1 event was experienced and most importantly that event had no impact on us.”
