Lightning Protection

If an unprotected building were to be struck by lightning, the result may be fire, structural damage, damage to the electrical systems/equipment and electric shock. The purpose of a Lightning Protection scheme is to shield a building, its occupants and contents from these adverse effects.

To do this properly the Lightning Protection system must capture the lightning, lead it safely down to earth, and disperse the energy within the ground. Whether or not a building needs a lightning protection scheme depends on several factors.

New innovative products include:

  • Lightweight Lightning Mast
  • Free-Standing Air Terminals
  • Air Terminals for use with Insulated High Voltage Cable

Earthing

The various standards for Earthing provide design limits to be met and together with codes of practice explain how the Earthing system can be designed to meet these. There are differences in the design limits applying to consumer installations and to supply industry installations and reference should be made to the correct standard to check the limits which apply in each situation.

In the past, it was normal practice to design an earthing system to achieve a certain impedance value. The earth electrodes being positioned near the equipment where a fault current was expected to pass. Recently, this has changed towards the approach used in North America. The most important difference is that the earthing system is designed to ensure that potentials in its vicinity are below appropriate limits.

Surge Protection

Surge Protection for electrical and electronic systems to the British and European standard BS EN 62305-4.

Kingsmill Industries can offer a complete solution to protect vital electrical and electronic systems from damage.

Copper Theft Detection & Earthing Integrity Monitoring (CuTS®)

Over time, anything buried in the ground corrodes. If that material is part of an earthing system providing a low impedance path to earth, then problems could arise.

CuTS® offers a way of monitoring the integrity of earthing systems, especially in remote sites.

CuTS® technology monitors earthing infrastructure in real time for theft, degradation and failure, providing operating companies with immediate, accurate intelligence on safety risks and service status.
