In Florida, all public schools, hospitals, and assisted living facilities are required by law to have lightning protection systems to guard against the destructive forces of lightning. Your building should too. Lightning has the power to tear through buildings, explode walls, disturb steel and ignite deadly fires. The cost of this damage can be enormous, not to mention deadly. The potential for losses due to equipment damage, business interruptions and personal injury caused by lightning can be a major expense for companies. A properly installed lightning protection system can minimize this threat to your business.
