Commercial Lightning and Surge Protection in Florida
Packing up to 100 million volts of electricity, a bolt of lightning has the power to tear through buildings, explode walls made of brick and concrete, disturb steel and ignite deadly fires. The cost of this damage can be enormous. Learn more about protecting your home or commercial property from this damaging force of nature.
Lightning Protection for a Commercial Property
The potential for losses due to equipment damage, business interruptions and personal injury caused by lightning can be a huge expense for companies. However, a properly installed lightning protection system can minimize this threat to your business. In Florida, all government buildings, schools, hospitals, airports, prisons and assisted living facilities are required by law to have a lightning protection system in order to protect the structure from the destructive forces of lightning...shouldn't you do the same?
Bonded Lightning Protection can help to eliminate your risk of lightning damage by designing and installing a lightning protection and surge protection system to meet your company's needs. As an industry leader with more than 32 years experience, our installation process and materials (Conventional System) comply with nationally recognized safety standards of Underwriters Laboratories and the National Fire Protection Association.
We offer two types of lightning protection systems for commercial and industrial structures.
System 2000 - Conventional Lightning Protection System
These are the primary components of a lighting protection system which work together to prevent lightning damage to your structure:
- Air terminals (rods)
- Conductor (cable)
- Bonds to metallic bodies
- Ground terminations
- Surge arresters
Dynasphere System 3000 - Alternative or Enhanced Lightning Protection System
The ERITECH Dynasphere System 3000 is offered as an alternative to a conventional lightning protection system (System 2000). The unique features of this system allow optimum performance, flexibility of design, as well as overall cost effective installation.
The Dynasphere air terminal provides a preferred point of lightning discharges which would otherwise strike and damage an unprotected structure and/or its contents. The Dynasphere is optimally connected to a down-conductor and low impedance grounding system in such a way as to provide a totally integrated system. The Dynasphere System 3000 is an enhanced air terminal that includes the following features:
It is comprised of the following elements that work together to form the complete lightning protection system:
- Non-radio active technology
- No external power required
- No moving parts
- Selection of tip radii and variable impedance to adjust for optimum performance at different installation heights
- Dynamic response to the approach of a lightning downleader
Don't Forget the Surge Protection!
- Dynasphere air terminal
- Lightning event counter
- Ground terminations
- Purposed designed low impedance grounding system
A professional lightning protection system protects your structure, but what about all of the expensive electronic equipment your company uses? Harmful electrical surges can enter your building through power lines, communication lines and other utility lines. Our qualified lightning protection specialist can make recommendations and install surge protection that is tailored to meet your company's needs and protect your valuable electronic equipment.
