    Commercial Lightning Protection

    Commercial Lightning Protection

    Many industrial and commercial property owners are choosing lightning protection systems for their structures as part of the overall security package to protect property, inventory, electrical equipment and precious human life.

    Residential Lightning Protection

    Residential Lightning Protection Systems

    A lightning protection system consist of many components. The key components, which work together to protect structures from lightning damage are air terminals, conductors, bonds, ground terminations, and surge protection devices.

    Lightning Protection for Barns & Farmhouses

    Barn Lightning Protection

    We install lightning rods with wire connections to the ground for barns. If lightning strikes the barn, it won’t bother your horses because the rods will absorb the brunt of it.

    Lightning Protection for Trees

    Tree Lightning Protection System

    Lightning protection devices from WB Lightning Rods can lessen the likelihood of harm from a  lightning strike. In order to mitigate the risk of tree damage and carry the electrical charge to the soil, where the energy is diffused, lightning protection systems use copper conductors coupled to a ground rod. Our technologies have a strong track record of safeguarding trees, and also lessen the possibility of a side-flash to neighboring structures.

    Lightning Rods

    Lightning Rods

    The lightning rod, which Benjamin Franklin invented in 1749, is a metal pole mounted atop a building that draws lightning’s electrical charge away from the structure. The rod is attached to an aluminum or copper cable that’s connected to an underground conductive grid.

    Our Work

    Why you need Tallahassee Lightning Protection System

    Our Tallahassee lightning protection system company installs lightning protection system in Tallahassee, Florida to protect structures in Tallahassee, Florida, from lightning strikes. Lightning protection systems typically consist of lightning rods or air terminals installed at the highest points of a structure, connected to conductors that lead lightning energy safely to the ground.

    Given Tallahassee’s frequent thunderstorms and lightning activity, such systems are crucial for safeguarding buildings, particularly tall structures like skyscrapers, as well as homes and other infrastructure. Properly installed lightning protection systems help to mitigate the risk of damage to property, injury to occupants, and fires caused by lightning strikes. These systems are installed according to local building codes and standards to ensure their effectiveness and reliability.

    1. Lightning Rods (Air Terminals): Lightning rods are installed at the highest points of a structure to intercept lightning strikes. They are typically made of metal and connected to conductive materials that safely direct the electrical current to the ground.
    2. Conductors (Downward Conductors): These are metal cables or rods that connect the lightning rods to the ground. They provide a path of least resistance for the lightning current to travel safely into the ground, preventing damage to the structure.
    3. Grounding System: A grounding system consists of buried metal rods or plates that are connected to the downward conductors. These rods help dissipate the electrical charge into the ground, reducing the risk of damage to the building and its occupants.
    4. Surge Protection Devices: Surge protectors are installed within the electrical systems of buildings to prevent damage from electrical surges caused by lightning strikes. These devices divert excess voltage away from sensitive equipment, such as computers and appliances, safeguarding them from harm.
    5. Bonding: Bonding involves connecting all metal components of a structure together to ensure they are at the same electrical potential. This prevents potential differences that could lead to dangerous electrical arcing during a lightning strike.
    6. Regular Maintenance: It’s essential to regularly inspect and maintain the lightning protection system to ensure its effectiveness. This includes checking for damage to rods and conductors, testing grounding systems, and replacing surge protection devices as needed.
    7. Compliance with Standards: Installations should comply with relevant codes and standards, such as the National Fire Protection Association’s NFPA 780 Standard for the Installation of Lightning Protection Systems and local building codes.

    Given Tallahassee’s unique climate and the frequency of thunderstorms, it’s advisable for buildings in the area to have comprehensive lightning protection systems installed and well-maintained to mitigate the risks associated with lightning strikes.
