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.
Industrial sites always provide their own risk assessment. When we were approached by an industrial site which measured level 1 on a risk assessment due to dangerous materials we knew approaching this safely was paramount. When first inspected a full traditional lightning protection service would cost the site £170,000, with that being a little out of their pricing range we came up with an alternative solution.
We evaluated the building and came up with a solution which would save them an incredible £160,000, with this saving we were contracted immediately to install the lightning protection for the site. We fitted a Safe Strike ESE device which required less maintenance saving the company not only money but also time.
