AIR TERMINALS – or the “lightning rods” are placed on the high points of a structure such as ridges, dormers and chimneys. A lightning rod is designed to intercept the lightning.
CONDUCTORS – cable typically made of copper, aluminum or tinned-copper and are designed to connect the lightning rods to the grounds.
GROUNDS – long rods that are connected to the main conductors and are designed to safely discharge the current below ground.
BONDS – prevent side flashes between two metallic objects. This is the connection of metal objects to the main conductor.
SURGE SUPPRESSORS– protect electronic devices from power surges. A surge is an increase in electrical current. We mount devices on the breaker panels to provide protection to electrical appliances throughout the structure.
