Lightning Protection Testing

At Powertest we can help you with your Lightning Protection Testing in Haywards Heath and throughout West Sussex.

The UK does not suffer too many lightning thunder storms; however, a single lightning strike is all it takes to cause serious disruption to your business. Even a proximity strike can be of sufficient magnitude to cause devastating effects to electrical installations and components.

If your building is fitted with a lightning protection system, we can test and inspect it to BS EN 62305-2006 standards. This consists of a full visual inspection plus an earth measurement test of each electrode resistance to ground. Testing periods are usually annual (or every 11months to vary the season in which tests are made).

If the overall reading is below 10 Ohms maximum a Certificate of Compliance will be issued and a drawing of the earth electrode positions.
