Do I need lightning protection?
Lightning can cause devastating damage to all buildings, houses, office blocks, factories, churches so forth. If you manage a building then you are responsible for the safety of the people within them. When lightning strikes it seeks out the quickest route to something with a positive charge, this is usually a building!
What will happen when strikes my building?
Without lightning and surge protection any lightning hitting your building has no way of being safely diverted back to earth. Without being able to dissipate, lightning will look for the quickest path to the ground which can often be through your electrics! Due to its scorching temperature, when lightning travels through your electrics it can cause damage from as little as a fried laptop/phone to roaring house fires and fatalities. Lightning is also known to travel through plumbing, so, make sure you avoid any contact with water and electricity during a storm.
