With lightning striking the ground over 300,000 times a year in the UK it is very important that testing and maintenance is undertaken for all types of lightning protection systems. Failure to do so and without proper protection and your building is at risk from structural damage.
Our experienced team of NVQ qualified engineers can carry out testing and maintenance to existing lightning protection systems throughout the UK, whether that be a BS 6651 system or BSEN 62305.
Section 5 of British Standards 62305 states that all lightning conductors and earth installations should be visually inspected and tested regularly at fixed intervals, preferably not exceeding 12 months.
At North West Lightning Protection, we make sure to test each individual earth installation as well as the connected system. We also test resistance to the ground and if satisfactory for a complete system, we issue a certificate of compliance.
As part of our continuing service we monitor and record all results, send out reminders for your test date and test all installations, including single earths and part systems. We carry out testing and maintenance throughout the UK, so all you need to do is call.
