We design and install lightning rod systems on all residential and commercial structures
A lightning protection system is intended to last the life of the structure it protects and typically only requires maintenance if a home or building is changed structurally or mechanically. Such changes might include a new roof, an addition, new electrical service or the installation of a satellite dish.
Our services include:
- Inspect an existing system for deficiencies
- Inspect systems after remodeling or roof repair work
- Install complete systems
- Repair work on an existing system
- Design consultation
- Free estimates
Copper conductors: 1/2″ diameter braided cable consisting of 32 strands of 17 gauge copper wire.
Aluminum conductors: 5/8″ diameter braided cable consisting of 26 strands of 14 gauge aluminum wire.
Air Terminal Rods
Copper sizes range from 3/8″ x 10″ to 1/2″ x 24″
Aluminum sizes range from 1/2″ x 10″ to 5/8″ x 24″
Rods over 24″ are available to order with a required brace.
Copper ground rods ranging from 1/2″ x 8′ to 3/4″ x 10′
These devices are installed on electric service panels to prevent dangerous high voltage from entering a structure through the incoming wires. The arrestor works as a filter to defray incoming voltage, thus preventing a lightning-induced electrical fire or explosion.
These are installed between the appliance, electronic equipment or computer and the electrical outlet to provide point-of-entry surge suppression from lightning induced power surges. Structures which contain sensitive electronic equipment may require a series of individual surge suppressors. Surge suppressors are not a required component of UL approved lightning protection system and can be implemented with the lightning protection system at the owner’s discretion or per installer’s recommendations.
Ornate points are available in a variety of selections to enhance the appearance of traditional lightning rods of a structure.
