Lightning Protection Products 

Lightning Enterprises specialise in fitting two main types of Lightning Protection System, Faraday cage systems and Early Streamer Emission Systems.

Faraday Cage systems consists of a network of copper or aluminium tape that effectively forms a cage surrounding the building to be protected. The cage connects to earths driven into the ground around the base of the building.

 

Early Streamer Emission systems use static electricity in the air to charge a form of capacitor fitted within a high level mast. The mast is connected to two earth positions at ground level.  In the right weather conditions for lightning to be formed the capacitor discharges a streamer which rises into the air and attracts the strike which when striking is taken down to earth to be discharged safely.
