Manufacturer & Supplier of Lightning Electrode & Lightning Conductor.
Conventional Lightning Protection System
The main function of the lightning protection system installed on the existing building is to capture a lightning strike and then conduct discharge current safety to the ground. The building requires number of copper rods, number of down conductors, number of earth pits, maintenance of all this put together becomes a costly & wastage of time also.
· In some conditions, however the active lightning system is the only possible method to protect from direct lightning strikes.Basis this, we recommend to use the active lightning protection whenever the conventional solution is inconvenient or when the former is more preferable to the latter as in the case of the efficient protection of architect.
Early Streamer Emission Lightning Conductors
· Early streamer emitting air terminals are designed to emit a streamer early in the streamer-formation phase of a lightning strike, thereby becoming the preferred lightning attachment point. As the ground charge builds immediately before the lightning strike, the ESE air terminal accumulates ground charge. In the instant before the strike, when the stepped leaders are branching down from the cloud, the ESE terminal emits a series of pulses of ground charge, forming a streamer from itself before streamers emit from other structures. Its streamer reaches the stepped leaders before competing streamers, thereby winning the competition. Ground charge accumulation and streamer triggering is done by FRANKLIN FRANCE Saint-Elmo ESE lightning conductor.
