Lightning protection
Surge Protection

Lightning can cause a surge in voltage across electrical circuits. These high voltages are commonly known as transient over-voltages. Transient over-voltages are known to cause high magnitude voltage peaks that last for just micro-seconds.


This phenomenon is also known as a surge. Direct and indirect lightning strikes are the most common causes of this occurrence. Surges are known to damage electrical and electronic systems, causing a disruption of operational and critical services. The importance of surge protection is now defined in many standards, including IEC/ BS EN 62305 and BS 7671.

Why ?
Lightning contains large amounts of electrical energy and a lightning discharge can produce up to 200,000 amps. If lightning hits your building directly or there is an indirect strike to the surrounding area it can cause a surge which can have devastating effects on all of your electrical and electronic equipment inside the building. It is important that not only the external fabric of the building is protected but that internal systems are too.

Our experts at Strike Control can design and install Surge Protection Measures that can protect all electrical and electronic installations. By selecting a carefully coordinated set of Surge Protection Devices (SPD's) at strategic locations in your property.

Certificate ?

Once a surge protection system has been installed our specialist engineers will test the system to ensure that it is fully operational and will produce a report confirming that your system offers protection in the event of a lightning strike. As with all lightning protection systems it is recommended they are tested annually.
