Q. How does a certified lightning protection system work?
A. A lightning protection system provides a designated path for the lightning current to travel. The system neither attracts nor repels a lightning strike, but simply intercepts and guides the current harmlessly to ground. A lightning protection system is made up of several components.
Air Terminals: (a.k.a. lightning rods): Inconspicuous slender rods installed on the roof at regular intervals as defined by industry standards. Conductors: Aluminum or copper cables that interconnect the air terminals and the other system components.
Ground Terminations: Metal rods driven into the earth to guide the lightning current harmlessly to ground.
Surge Arrestors, and Suppressors: Devices that are installed in conjunction with a lightning protection system to protect electrical wiring and electronic systems and equipment.
