Lightning Protection System Installation

In most cases, the need for installation of lightning protection systems is based on a risk assessment and the following categories of losses: Loss of life or risk to life; Loss of production or supply of goods or services to the general public; Loss of economic value; or Loss of cultural heritage. The NFPA provides risk assessment guidelines.

Coastal Lightning Rods, a Florida based lightning protection company installs Lightning Surge protection systems to meet our customers requirements, budget and deadline.  We provide an installation service that is cost effective, prompt, efficient and of highest quality.  Our experience has given us the ability to install lightning protection systems on any building of any shape or size.  Installations are carried out by highly skilled technicians.  All work is carried out in line with current industry standards and guidelines.

Concealed and Exposed Lightning Protection System Installation

We install concealed, partially concealed or exposed lightning system on your roof to protect your home from lightning.  When designed during construction all of the lightning protection system, except the rooftop terminals, can be concealed and run inside the structure.  Decorative finials can also be used as air terminals, making the lightning protection an architectural accent. Fully concealed system can installed when constructing a new house. A partially concealed lightning protection system can be installed on an existing house depending upon how much access there is to run the cable. A fully exposed system has cables and lightning rods on the roof. The cables can be hidden behind the ridges and the down conductors can run behind the gutter sprouts for less visibility.

    What is a Lightning Protection System?

    The lightning protection system consists of lightning rods that are interconnected at the roof level, down conductors tied to ground rods or ground loop, bonding all the incoming utilities together. A properly installed lightning protection system will safe-guard a commercial building structurally, protect property, electronic equipment and employees from the destructive forces of lightning. Having a lightning protection system will provide you with a peace of mind knowing that a potentially catastrophic situation has been proactively dealt with. Our many years of experience in the design and installation of lightning protection and grounding systems allows us to deliver high quality installations at an affordable price.

    What is a Lightning Arrester

    A lightning arrester is a device used on electric power systems and telecommunication systems to protect the insulation and conductors of the system from the damaging effects of lightning. The typical lightning arrester has a high-voltage terminal and a ground terminal.

    A lightning arrester is a device placed where wires enter a structure, in order to prevent damage to electronic instruments within and ensuring the safety of individuals near the structures. Smaller versions of lightning arresters, also called surge protectors, are devices that are connected between each electrical conductor in a power or communications system, and the ground. They help prevent the flow of the normal power or signal currents to ground, but provide a path over which high-voltage lightning current flows, bypassing the connected equipment. Arresters are used to limit the rise in voltage when a communications or power line is struck by lightning or is near to a lightning strike.

    Surge Protection

    Lightning can cause power surges that can damage your electric equipment and appliances. Coastal Lightning Rods provides whole house surge protection.


    An earthing system or grounding system connects specific parts of an electric power system with the ground, typically the Earth’s conductive surface, for safety and functional purposes. The choice of earthing system can affect the safety and electromagnetic compatibility of the installation.

    Fact: While lightning rods can protect a structure from direct lightning strikes, a comprehensive lightning protection system installation is required to help avoid damaging electrical surges and potential fires caused by lightning entering a structure through cables and pipes.

    Coastal Lightning Rods of Florida, provides a full range of lightning protection services including:

    • Lightning Rod Installation – Lightning rods are usually placed at the highest points of a building or structure to maximize their effectiveness in attracting lightning strikes. This could include roof peaks, chimneys, or tall masts.
    • Grounding – Along with lightning rods, a grounding system consisting of grounding rods buried deep into the ground is essential. This system provides a safe path for the electrical current from a lightning strike to dissipate harmlessly into the earth.
    • Retrofit Existing Lightning Protection System: Retrofitting an existing lightning protection system involves making modifications or additions to enhance its effectiveness or meet updated safety standards.
