Grounding & Lightning Protection System
Grounding & lightning protection
When designing a structural lightning protection system using the Faraday Cage principle, it is possible to use one or more of a variety of available conductor systems; namely flat tape, solid circular or cable & wire (stranded).
The earth termination system is vital for the dispersion of lightning current safely and effectively into the ground. The standard recommends a single integrated earth termination system for a structure, combining lightning protection, power and telecommunication systems. The agreement of the operating authority or owner of the relevant systems should be obtained prior to any bonding taking place.
