We offer a single integrated lightning protection system suitable for protection of structure, power system and telecommunication system, where the solution is a combination of effective air termination system, down conductor system, adequate earthing system and surge protective devices.
The protection system is designed as the 3D model of structure with complete specifications and the final design is supported by a detailed report on design basis and BOM for the implementation work.
ABOUT THE SERVICE
Lightning protection is the most critical part of design consideration for any structure. Any lightning strike, if not protected; shall cause heavy destructions in form of structural damage to buildings, failure of internal systems & equipment and even serious injuries or loss of life. Most of these losses can be minimized, if not eliminated, through the implementation of proper lightning protection for structures.
A proper installation of Lightning protection system shall ensure structure & life safety, security of investment and elimination of system failure or downtime.
If we consider Lightning protection for a building which may be commercial space, warehouse, processing plant, Data Centre, etc.; your analysis may start with:
Do you really need Lightning protection system for your structure?
Deciding; whether the protection system is required or not shall be tough without the proper knowledge of applicable standards and guidelines. However, the task can be made easy with experts having qualification and industrial exposure for such works.
So, now if you have decided the protection system requirement for your structure; you also need to check that:
What particular level of protection system you require?
The level of protection system to be installed at any structure shall vary on the basis of different factors like geographical location, structural attributes and environmental influences.
Level of protection system is the deciding factor for the design to be adopted for structure. Hence, it is important to decide the level of protection system correctly.
Designing the required Protection system?
WIRE adopt international standard for lightning protection design as per IEC 62305 – ‘Protection against Lightning’, which is adopted by Bureau of Indian standard replacing IS 2309. Also, National Building Code – 2016, Part -8, Section 2 states the need of measures to be taken for planning, erection, testing and maintenance of lightning protection system.
