Your lightning protection solution

Today our technologies, our knowledge and our experiments allow us to offer you high quality solutions in the field of lightning protection.

Each year, lightning causes hundreds of millions of euros of material damage.

What is the difference between lightning and surge protection ?

Differences between lightning rod and parasurge

The lightning and surge protection are hardware protection against lightning with different functionalities to the phenomenon of the lightning strike.

The lightning conductor protects structures against direct lightning strikes. The lightning conductor material is arranged outside on the highest point of a structure. The lightning conductor has the function of capturing lightning strikes are succeptibles directly hitting the structure it protects. The Outdoor Installation Protection against Lightning consists of a sensor called lightning rod, at least oneconductorand a grounded outlet dedicated to each driver. The ground connections must be connected together and all the metal masses in the vicinity. Outdoor installation Protection against Lightningcaptures leads and flows into the ground the electric current from lightning.

The arrester protects against indirect effects of lightning strikes. The SPD is the material placed inside of a structure on networks that transport electricity (power, communications, data ...). The arrester has the function to avoid surges in the network it protects. The Inside Installation of Protection against Lightning consists of one or more arresters systems. The arresters act as switches. The arresters close their circuit when surge appears on the network and they divert the current to earth ground. Indoor installation Protection against Lightningduct and flows surges and currents in the electrical grounding.

Implementation

Paraton@ir® Early Streamer Emitter lightning rods are part and parcel of a complete protection against lightning system, including also downward conductors, grounding, etc...

Before its implementation, a protection against lightning system must be the object of an in-depth study.

To provide an optimal security, this system must also be installed in compliance with the standards in force and the manufacturer's instructions.

To benefit from your product warranty, your protection against lightning system must imperatively follow those study and installation codes.

Our licensed partners (distributors, installers) are proficient in ensuring you the necessary conditions to the preservation of your warranty.

Simple Frankin Rod

Protection zone : The simple rod lightning does not allow for extensive protection area. This solution is only appropriate in cases of small-sized ground structures (pylons, masts ...).

Protection of open areas : The simple rod lightning conductor requires a slightly different implementation of the lightning rod Paraton@ir®. As such it is very simple to install for very small structures. The average size of structures require the lightning conductor mast raising effort, which generates costs and implementation times greater than with the lightning rod Paraton@ir®.

Study : The simple rod lightning conductor has a delicate study of its low protective properties.

Implementation : The simple rod lightning conductor requires a slightly different implementation of the lightning rod Ellips. As such it is very simple to install for very small structures. The average size of structures require the lightning conductor mast raising effort, which generates costs and implementation times greater than with the lightning rod Paraton@ir®.

Qualifications required Implementation : The qualification of installers for the implementation of a single rod lightning rod is conventional and is not a barrier to the correct installation of the protection system against lightning.

Aesthetics (Integration architecture) : The simple rod lightning is easily integrated into the architecture of a building if it has very small dimensions. Otherwise the simple rod lightning will be raised by a large mast which can distort the appearance of the entire building.

Budget implementation : The cost of the implementation of a simple rod lightning approaches the implementation of cost rod Paraton@ir® lightning rod.

Maintenance Cost : The simple rod lightning does not require extensive maintenance. Periodic checks are a low cost with a simple protection system.

Cage mesh

Protection zone : The system of protection against lightning said to "mesh cage" does not allow for extensive protection area. The protection zone obtained is limited to the actual position of the points and / or drivers implemented.

Protection of open areas : The system of protection against lightning told "meshed cage" is not suitable for the protection of open areas.

Study : The system of protection against lightning says "meshed cage" asks a difficult study.

Implementation : The system of protection against lightning said to "mesh cage" implementation requires a complex and long.

Qualifications required Implementation : The system of protection against lightning said to "mesh cage" implementation requires a complex and long.

Aesthetics (Integration architecture) : The system of protection against lightning told "meshed cage" is not integrated into the architecture of a building.

Budget implementation : The cost of implementing a system of protection against lightning told "meshed cage" is very expensive (hardware + time implementation + maintenance).

Maintenance Cost : The system of protection against lightning said to "mesh cage" demand extensive maintenance. Periodic checks are a significant cost.

Tensioned cables

Protection zone : The system of protection against lightning said to "tense son" does not allow for extensive protection area. The protection zone obtained is limited to the actual position of the overhead conductors.

Protection of open areas : The system of protection against lightning said to "tense son" is suitable for the protection of open areas of small dimensions.

Study : The system of protection against lightning said to "tense son" asks a simple study.

Implementation : The system of protection against lightning said to "tense son" requires a complex implementation and long.

Qualifications required Implementation : The qualification of installers for the implementation of a system of protection against lightning said to "tense son" is important. Its implementation should be carried out by competent elements.

Aesthetics (Integration architecture) : The system of protection against lightning said to "tense son" does not fit into the architecture of a building.

Budget implementation : The cost of implementing a system of protection against lightning said to "tense son" is very expensive (hardware + time implementation + maintenance)

Maintenance Cost : The system of protection against lightning said to "tense son" demand extensive maintenance. Periodic checks are a significant cost.
