Surge arrester and Lightning rod: Prevent fires and protect your electrical installations
Surge arresters and lightning rods are devices used to protect against lightning strikes and electrical surges.
A lightning rod protects your historical building against a direct lightning strike. Often in the form of a spike installed on the roof of a building, lightning rods act by channelling the lightning to the ground, preventing fires and damage to masonry and roofs.
- - The lightning rod protects the building against the risks of lightning. It comprises an early streamer emission device (ESE) and two conductors that run into the ground.
A surge arrester is a device that protects electrical and electronic devices from transitory electrical surges caused by lightning.
- - Destruction of equipment caused by lightning is fortunately not inevitable. Effective protection solutions exist: surge arresters which, when carefully chosen and properly installed on the various networks, provide a level of security to cope with these disturbances
- - There are two types of surge arrester: T1 installed as near as possible to the low-voltage switchboard and T2 installed as close as possible to the low-voltage equipment to be protected.
