    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.

    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.

    We have been hit twice by lightning, by God’s grace neither one hit our home, however the last strike burnt our motorhome to the ground. William was hired to install lightning protection lightning rods on our home and two out buildings.  He took the time to explain to us everything we needed to know by answering every question professionally, conducted himself in the utmost professional manner. I would highly recommend WB Lightning Rods, and even more highly recommended hiring William to do the job.  We are going to do an expansion later on and he will be the one and only contractor I will call to continue our lightning protection.” ~ Lightning Protection New York.
