Electricity light lightning protection  Reply with quote  

Hi everyone,
At the moment I'm preparing the place to start building my own house and there is a question about electricity ligne lightning protection. Are there any specialists in Line Lightning Protection Devices?
Thanks in advance.

If you are talking about something like this : https://www.streamer-electric.com/products/lightning-protection/induced-lightning/sai10z you can contact Streamer Electric experts, they will help you to understand which one will be better and maybe even help you to install it.

There's not much you can do to protect from a direct hit, but fortunately most damage is caused by currents induced into cables. If your house is one of the highest in the area and there aren't trees nearby then you may want to fit lightning conductors to define a safe route to earth https://www.streamer-electric.com However, the chances are that the lightening entered the house via electrical, aerial & telephone cables. If the lightening lands in your area then it can induce large currents into cables without even striking them. If it lands somewhere else it can travel a long way via cables. You can buy a range of transient suppressor devices designed to tackle lightening. You should have some basic spark gap & electrostatic discharge protection where the cables enter the house. If the cables are overhead this should have been fitted by the electrical or telephone company, you will need to do this yourself for the aerial cables. Then you should fit some more precise transient voltage protection closer to each valuable piece of electrical kit. You can get relatively expensive plug-in products aimed at modems & PCs, or you can buy individual transient suppressor components for fitting across the mains supply, for example, in a socket or junction box.
