Why Lightning Protection Risk Assessment Are Necessary
Each year, the amount of property damage that occurs as a direct result of lightning strikes equates to billions of dollars. This number does not even include the downtime experienced by businesses due to the resultant damages caused by lightning strikes. In fact, most insurance companies now require up-to-date lightning protection for commercial buildings, industrial sites, government buildings, and more before offering insurance. If you do not have lighting protection or have older equipment in place, it is time to schedule a comprehensive lightning risk assessment with Lightning Master Corporation.
Navigating Lightning Protection Systems and Services
If you are in charge of a facility, or in the process of building a new facility, then conducting a lightning protection risk assessment should be a major part of the process. Buildings should follow the guidelines and standards set by the National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA), whether you are an engineer, architect, safety professional, or building owner. The NFPA guideline is called the 780 standards, which specifically relates to lightning protection. When the Lightning Master Corporation team starts the process of lightning protection risk assessment, we will follow NFPA 780 guidelines.
The 780 guidelines for lightning protection risk assessment are as follows:
- Type of facility being constructed
- The type of environment where the building is located
- The contents of the building or structure
- Potential consequences of a lightning strike
After the risk assessments are made, our team will have a clear idea of what specific lightning protection equipment and services your property will require.
