Lightning Protection Techniques

Facilities of many types need protection from the
harmful impact of lightning strikes.
The forces of nature often prove to be resistant to a full understanding by the likes of humanity. Lightning simultaneously frightens and fascinates us, and it seems to be less predictable in its touchdown points than we would like it to be. Lightning strikes constitute extreme releases of energy. A direct hit to your facility or equipment has a high probability of rendering it unusable. The pathways of the destructive energy can be diffuse and unpredictable.

Prevention, by diverting the energy away from where it will do harm, is generally considered to be the best protective path for industrial and commercial facilities. In a previous post, we shared a comparison of several lightning protection techniques. The report is included below for review.
