Lightning protection risk assessments are an important element in ensuring the right level of protection is provided against the risk of a potential lightning strike. Failure to carry out a risk assessment can invalidate your insurance.
This listed grade 2 building required a specialist with extensive knowledge and the skills to test and inspect their current lightning protection equipment. At Lightning Strike we was on hand to provide them with exactly what they needed to ensure that everything was up to the regulated and safe BS EN 62305 standards. After testing and inspecting the building the conclusion was that an update to their lightning protection was needed.
With the building being listed grade 2 we understood that the aesthetics of the building where crucial and that the correct lightning protection had to keep within the building’s design requirements. At Lightning Strike we like a design challenge so we had no issues with coming up with a practical and safe solution. We turned our Safe Strike lightning protection system to act as a flag pole to keep within the natural beauty of the building whilst protecting the structure from lightning damage. It took only three days to complete this job with minimum disruption to the working environment.
