    Why you Need Lightning Protection System in Florida

    In Florida, lightning strikes are common due to its warm and humid climate. Therefore, lightning protection systems are important for safeguarding both residential and commercial structures. It’s important to consult with a licensed and experienced lightning protection specialist or engineer to design and install an effective lightning protection system tailored to the specific needs of your building or structure.

    Additionally, building codes and regulations in Florida may require certain lightning protection measures to be in place, so it’s essential to ensure compliance with local regulations when installing a lightning protection system.

    How does Lightning Protection System Work?

    Lightning rods (along with the protection system) are used to protect a structure from direct lightning strikes and, more importantly, from starting a fire due to lightning. Lightning protection systems do not stop lightning from striking a structure. Instead, lightning protection systems intercept a strike, provide a conductor path for the damaging electrical discharge (the appropriate UL listed copper or aluminum cable) and safely disperse the energy into the ground (the grounding network).

    It is critical that these components are properly bonded to reduce the risk of sparks or side flashes from lightning strikes. While a lightning rod helps protect a building from a direct strike, a complete system is necessary to help prevent damaging electrical surges and potential fires from lightning entering a structure through wires and pipes. A complete system should include electrical surge protection devices (for incoming power, data and communication lines) as well as surge protection for vulnerable appliances.

    A lightning protection system should meet or exceed the national safety standards as determined by the Lightning Protection Institute (the Lightning Protection Institute), the National Fire Protection Association (the National Fire Protection Association) and Underwriters Laboratories (the Underwriters Laboratories). In addition, a lightning protection system may also be used for gas piping.
