      Gulf Coast Lightning Rods did a great job on the install at our new house! 99% of the copper cable was hidden, either in the attic or behind a downspout. The quality of the material was top notch as well. The piece of mind I have now makes this worth every penny! Thank you!

    What is a Lightning Protection System?

    A Lightning Protection System has a number of  components. A typical lightning protection system is made up of several parts, such as metal conductors, ground electrodes, and lightning rods.

    The primary purpose for a lightning protection system is to route that electrical energy from a lightning strike to a less destructive path to ground, rather than letting it travel through the building’s structure, electrical wiring, pipes where it would create a havoc. Lightning rods or air terminals are the topmost element of a lightning protection system where the initial contact between the lightning strike and system occurs.

    The lightning rods are strategically installed on the roof, chimneys or other elevated areas.  Highly conductive copper and aluminum materials are used in a lightning protection system.  This provides a low resistance path to safely ground lightning’s dangerous electricity.   The lightning  strike is intercepted and directed to ground without impacting the structure, occupants or contents of the property. A lightning protection system includes a network of air terminals, bonding conductors, and ground electrodes designed to provide a low impedance path to ground for potential strikes.

    The dissipation of a lightning strike requires correct system design, installation in accordance with UL 96A, NFPA 780.

    Will Lightning Protection System prevent lightning strikes?

    Unfortunately, lightning strikes cannot be prevented. They’re natural phenomena that occur with little warning and can cause untold damage to buildings, property, and life.  Lightning can pass through telephone cords, power lines, computers, electronic equipment and other appliances.  Moreover, a lightning strike has the potential to be fatal and cause fires.

    However, you can reduce the risk of damaging your property, people and livestock by having a comprehensive lightning protection system that meets all relevant standards.
