Lightning Rod Installation

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 highly recommend WB Lightning Rods. William was very responsive and was able to do our install within a week of our initial call. We are happy with the installation and feel relieved to have added lightning protection for our central Florida home.

  • I only had a limited window of time for this project. William and his son arrived on time and installed a system on my house very quickly. They had enough time left to complete my barn as well. The workmanship I saw on both structures was great. I highly recommend them to anyone else.

  • The installation was quick and with first rate. materials. The Tampa Bay area holds a US record for the number of thunderstorms per year. I think that one week after installation the RV storage building that is protected by the lightning rods was struck. Aside from one gosh awful noise there was no damage.

What is a lightning protection system?

A lightning protection system is a set of devices and measures designed to protect structures, buildings, and people from the damaging effects of lightning strikes. These systems typically include lightning rods or air terminals mounted at the highest points of a structure to attract lightning strikes. Conductors or lightning cables then carry the electrical charge safely to the ground, where it can dissipate harmlessly.

In addition to lightning rods, grounding systems are essential components of lightning protection. These systems consist of conductive materials buried in the ground, providing a safe path for the lightning’s electrical energy to disperse into the earth.

Lightning protection systems also often include surge protection devices installed in electrical and communication systems to prevent damage to equipment caused by lightning-induced power surges.

Overall, the goal of a lightning protection system is to provide a safe path for lightning to follow, minimizing the risk of damage to structures and the danger posed to occupants.
