Lightning Protection Analysis

The most effective protection strategy is to prevent lightning from striking sensitive electrical installations and structures. This is achieved by safely earthing the electrical current and diverting it away from vulnerable systems, thus preventing damage to critical assets. At EPS, we offer comprehensive earthing system design services and site surveys, identifying the best designs and systems to optimise electrical safety on your premises.

Why Do You Need Lightning Protection?

Without adequate safeguards and earthing systems in place, lightning poses a serious risk to electrical networks, and can cause severe damage to critical and high-value assets, as well as electrical wiring and infrastructure. At Engineering Power Solutions (EPS), our lightning protection design service assesses the risk from lightning to your assets and personnel and mitigates this risk by building effective protection and prevention measures into your earthing system design. All of our lightning protection designs comply with the latest UK regulations and safety standards, including:

  • IEC / BS / EN 62305: Protection against lightning
  • BS 6651: Lightning protection for structures
  • NFPA 780: Installation standards for lightning protection systems
