Keeping your home and office safe from the dangers of extreme weather.
Lightning causes more than one billion dollars annually in structural damage to homes and business.
Lightning is not deterred by surge arresters, suppressors and "whole house" protection alone. When combined with a structural lightning rod system and grounding system they can prove to be a valuable and effective means of protecting internal equipment.
Lightning rods (air terminals) do not attract lightning.
Tall trees do not protect structures from lightning strikes. Lightning can side-flash from a tree and enter a home or business
as it seeks a more conductive path to ground.
Lightning likes technology. With more and more tech savvy equipment, the losses from lightning strikes
are increasing. Today's home and businesses have more electronic equipment than ever before.
A lightning rod on a chimney will not provide adequate protection. A single rod or single air
terminal is not adequate to protect a structure against lightning. Improper installation
can lead to serious and dangerous consequences for the homeowner.
Avoid using the telephone, standing near open
windows or doorways, standing near metal piping, or watching or standing
near a T.V. Stay away from large metal objects such as plumbing sinks,
tubs, radiators and stoves.
Avoid lakes, beaches, pools or open water during a storm
Do not seek shelter under a tree or ride a golf cart.
Avoid areas where you will be the highest object. Drop to your knees, lean forward and crouch with your hands on your knees.
Do not lie down or place your hands on the ground.
