Conductive metal rods are mounted on top of homes, businesses, factories, and other structures. These rods are strike receptors for lightning discharge . Most are unobtrusive thin poles. They can also be designed as decorative elements.
Let's keep you safe from the hazards
Copper or aluminium conductors run along the roof and down the building to route lightning strikes away from the structure and channel the electrical current to the ground. This protects structures from damage due to lightning strikes.
The cables are connected to long thick ground rods, which are buried around a protective area. As the current moves through the cable to the rods, the current is safely discharged and the individuals and structure remain safe.
We’re thankful for Benjamin Franklin and his lightning rod discovery back in 1749. Lightning protection systems now guard us from dangerous lightning currents.
