This produces high quality earth electrode and lightning protection designs, in compliance with globally recognised standards. Designs are tailored and installed using the most appropriate and up-to-date products. Lightning is a real and significant threat. Containing astonishing amounts of electrical energy.
Lightning discharges have been measured from several thousand to over , Amps enough to light half a million Watt bulbs. Although very short in duration, a lightning strike can cause tremendous damage and destruction. Devastating consequences: Direct lightning strikes damage structures, and create fire, explosion and electric shock hazards. Indirect lightning up to a kilometre away creates transient over voltages which degrade electronic systems and disrupt essential services.
While the effects of a direct lightning strike are immediately obvious, secondary effects of lightning can be less visible; which can lead to equally catastrophic devastation, and damage to electronic systems within structures. These frightening photos of lightning from a hurricane above Miami, Florida in the USA were taken after the storm left a trail of destruction in the Caribbean.
Credit: Chad Weisser Caters News The need for a total solution Lightning protection throughout the world is now governed by National and International standards which stress the need for a comprehensive solution. A structural lightning protection system cannot and will not protect electronic systems from lightning currents and transient over voltages.
This is why a total solution to earthing and lightning protection is encouraged. Furse delivers an approach demonstrating effective life safety, as well as long lasting and reliable protection of a structure and the electronic systems within.
This solution is tailored and covers a wide range of sectors; providing dependable, long term lightning protection and earthing.
Furse Earthing Catalogue
Without such a system, the safety of a structure, the equipment contained within it and its occupants are compromised. Earthing systems typically fall into but are not limited to one of the following categories: Power generation, transmission and distribution Lightning protection Control of undesirable static electricity Telecommunications The following schematic illustrates the key elements of an effective earthing system. Earth plates are used to attain an effective earth in shallow soils with underlying rocks or in locations with large amounts of buried services. They can also provide protection at potentially dangerous places e. HV switching positions.
