Lightning Protection in London


Lightning can strike your London-based business when you least expect it and if you don’t have lightning protection in place, the damage it can cause can be catastrophic.

At Kiasu Workforce, we can install, maintain and test virtually any lightning protection system in accordance with the current standards and specifications. More importantly, our lightning protection services can ensure you have the right infrastructure in place to protect vulnerable premises and equipment, your people, and your business.

How Does Lightning Protection Help?

Lightning strikes can’t be prevented. They’re natural phenomena that occur with little warning and can cause untold damage to buildings and property as well as life.

If you run a business or organisation, it’s your responsibility to protect your property, your staff and your customers by reducing the vulnerability of your buildings and other structures with comprehensive lightning protection that meets all relevant standards.

It’s difficult to put a cost to lightning damage, but the consequences to people, property – and ultimately your business – can be significant. At its worst, direct lightning can kill but damage to buildings and vehicles is the most common issue, either from the lighting itself or from fallen trees.

Just as frequent are the issues caused by the current as it travels through plumbing and other pipes, telephone cords and power lines. This often results in damaged appliances and therefore increased downtime and reduced productivity – a costly issue for many businesses.

Lightning Protection Systems

A typical lightning protection system contains a number of components, including lightning rods, ground electrodes and metal conductors.

Each component works together to offer the lowest resistance path to ground – and because the current from a lightning strike will always seek out the path of least resistance, the system safely directs high voltage currents away from the building structure itself.
