‘There are no devices or methods capable of modifying the natural weather phenomena to the extent that they can prevent lightning discharges. Lightning flashes to, or nearby, structures (or lines connected to the structures) are hazardous to people, to the structures themselves, their contents and installations as well as to lines. This is why the application of Lightning Protection measures is essential.’ [BS EN 62305-1:2011] A. N. Wallis & Co Ltd are one of the world’s leading Electrical Earthing & Lightning Protection component and material manufacturers and suppliers.
To complement our highly successful material supply business, A. N. Wallis offers a complete Lightning Protection Systems Design Service to BS EN 62305. Lightning Protection Systems are often seen as inert and may sometimes be dismissed as cost-saving or forgotten about until a late stage of the project. But should these systems fail due to incompetent design or the use of cheap, substandard components, the resulting events may be catastrophic or even lethal. Our team of highly experienced professional Engineers & Technicians design Lightning Protection Systems (LPS) to the IEC 62305 standard or the local derivative.
Our Lightning System Designs not only comply with the relevant National and International Standards, but also follow the ethos of the UK Governments’ Construction, Design & Management (CDM) Regulations 2015. Some of the areas we are working in are:-
- Process plants static earthing
- Petrochemical production
- Data Centres
- Shopping Centres
