Lightning Protection System Completed at The Ballpark of the Palm Beaches
February 24, 2017
Bonded Lightning Protection recently completed the installation of a lightning protection system at The Ballpark of the Palm Beaches in West Palm Beach, Florida. Located at 5444 Haverhill Rd, The Ballpark of the Palm Beaches is the new spring training home of Major League Baseball’s Houston Astros and Washington Nationals. Bonded’s lightning protection system protects the facility, and all its 160 acres of multi-purpose fields, by diverting lightning’s destructive power safely into the ground. The system’s design protects lives, electronic and technological infrastructure.
“Lightning killed more people in Florida last year than any other state,” said Bonded Lightning President Patrick Dillon, “This system ensures that every athlete and spectator who enjoys this new complex is kept as safe as possible from lightning strikes and the devastation they can bring. The facility’s vast technology and security infrastructure is also well-protected from disruption and damage.”
