Lightning Protection Systems

Lightning Protection Systems consist of three basic parts that provide the low impedance metal path required:

  1. a system of air terminals on the roof and other elevated locations,
  2. a system of ground terminals, and
  3. a conductor system connecting the air terminals to the ground terminals.

Properly located and installed, these basic components assure that the lightning discharge will be conducted harmlessly between the air terminals and the ground terminals in most cases.
