Air Terminal Rods
Copper sizes range from 3/8″ x 10″ to 1/2″ x 24″
Aluminum sizes range from 1/2″ x 10″ to 1/2″ x 24″
Rods over 24″ are available to order with a required brace.
Ground Terminals
10 foot x 1/2″ copper ground rod
Lightning Arrestors

The above are installed on electric service panels.  This prevents high voltage from entering a property/structure from the incoming wires.  The arrestor is the filter that defray incoming voltage, that will prevent a lightning-induced electrical fire or an explosion.

Surge Suppressors

Surge suppressors are installed for the appliance, electronic equipment, computer and electrical outlets.  This provides point-of-entry surge suppression from lightning induced power surges.

Structures like data centers contain sensitive electronic equipment.  For this they require individual surge suppressors.  Although surge suppressors are not a required component of UL approved lightning protection system , we can implement them with the lightning protection system when required.
