Catenary lightning protection systems are well-suited for facilities that contain flammable and explosive materials or where the installation of traditional air terminals is challenging if not impossible. ALLTEC designs, fabricates, and supervises the installation of catenary systems.
Aided by a lightning protection analysis, our engineers prepare installation design drawings for a catenary lightning protection systems that require placement of lightning masts/towers, over-head ground wire, down conductors, grounding system layouts, and additional accessories.
- Overhead ground wire used to protect the phase conductors in power transmission lines
- Structures containing flammable vapors or flammable gases
- Structures where traditional air terminal system is not applicable both from installation and safety performance perspective
