Lightning Protection (LP) is important for the protection of persons and structures from the high energy levels delivered during indirect and direct lightning strikes.
Earthing Risk Management is a Professional Advisor to ATLAS (The Association of Technical Lightning and Access Specialists) and provides detailed lightning risk assessments in accordance with BS EN 62305.
ERM engineers sit on the working group for BS EN 62305.
A lightning protection risk assessment will be conducted following discussion with the client, examination of drawings and a site technical survey to gather information on building use, occupancy and contained electrical / electronic systems.
Should risk assessment show LP or surge protective measures are necessary, ERM can provide designs for the buildings or structures at risk, supported by CAD installation drawings.
Importantly, ERM does not sell or install lightning protection systems so the design provided will always be only as extensive as required to provide protection at the appropriate level.
