Lightning Strike Protection Test & Inspection

Lightning Protection

The ever-increasing reliance upon electronic systems in our everyday lives and the subsequent consequences of damage to these systems heightens the need to protect them from damage by lightning strikes with lightning strike testing.

Our extensive experience in working safely at height, combined with our knowledge of lightning protection, means we can offer a comprehensive nationwide lightning strike protection test and inspection service.

It is a requirement of the Electricity at Work Regulations – Reg 4 part 2:1989 to have lightning protection systems professionally maintained to minimise danger. As part of our service, we undertake an earth resistance test using calibrated test meters at ground level, visually inspect the down conductors (affixed to the wall) for signs of damage/missing components and test for continuity. We also undertake a visual inspection of the ‘airstrike’ components – the parts of the system located on the roof of the structure where lightning is most likely to hit.

Whilst undertaking the inspection of the roof-mounted airstrike components, it is possible that our engineers are potentially exposed to a fall hazard, so rescue planning is required. We provide you, the duty holder with the reassurance that our engineers are appropriately trained in working at height and rescue. This therefore allows them to safely access all areas required as part of the lightning protection inspection process.

It is worth noting at this point that lightning protection/earthing systems alone will not eliminate the possible damage to electrical goods caused by a lightning strike. There is a need to have a comprehensive protection system, which incorporates earthing, surge protection and electromagnetic shielding.

Frequency of Inspection

It is recommended that lightning protection systems should be professionally checked at least once a year to guarantee that it can safely conduct a prospective lightning strike to an earthing point.

At Eurosafe, we provide regular lightning protection testing and inspection on an annual basis in accordance with the recommendations of BS6651:1999 for existing older systems and in line with BS EN 62305:2006 for modern systems.

By working with us, you can be assured that your system is tested and inspected within the required frequency, giving you complete peace of mind.
