Lightning protection systems installed professionally and in accordance with the regulations provide effective protection against direct lightning strikes.
The task of a lightning protection system is to intercept all lightning strikes entering a building. The lightning current must be intercepted at the impact point, be deflected towards the earth and distributed in the ground. The idea is to prevent thermal, mechanical or electrical effects that cause damage to the building to be protected, or humans through contact or step voltages inside the building.
A lightning protection system comprises:
> External lightning protection:
> Interception system
> Earthing system
Internal lightning protection:
> Lightning protection equipotential bonding system
> Separating distance
