A Structural Protection System is a copper cable framework installed within the exterior walls of the structure. Connected at the highest points of this framework are the air terminals or “lightning rods.” This conductive framework carries lightning energy safely to the base of the structure where it is dissipated into the earth through a buried grounding system. Applied Lightning builds protection systems to NFPA 780. This Standard for the Installation of Lightning Protection Systems is a comprehensive engineering standard. National Fire Protection Association also produces the NEC or National Electric Code. Because both standards reference each other, the Suffolk County lightning protection engineering integrates seamlessly with the engineering of your household electrical system. All materials used are UL listed for use in Lightning Protection Systems.
