Lightning Protection

If an unprotected building were to be struck by lightning the result may be fire, structural damage, damage to the electrical systems / equipment and electric shock. The purpose of a lightning protection scheme is to shield a building, its occupants and contents from these adverse effects. To do this properly the lightning protection system must capture the lightning, lead it safely down to earth, and disperse the energy within the ground. Whether or not a building needs a lightning protection scheme depends on several factors.

Product range includes:

  • Air Terminals
  • Conductors
  • Puddle Flanges
  • Test Clamps
  • Square Clamps
  • DC Clips
  • Early Streamer Emission devices

Kingsmill Lightning Protection Components are tested by The Research and Test Centre – High Voltage and High Current Testing Centre Laboratory – an RvA certified test laboratory. A full test report with certification is produced for all components satisfying the test criteria.


The various standards for earthing provide design limits to be met and together with codes of practice explain how the earthing system can be designed to meet these. There are differences in the design limits applying to consumer installations and to supply industry installations and reference should be made to the correct standard to check the limits which apply in each situation.

In the past, it was normal practice to design an earthing system to achieve a certain impedance value. The earth electrodes being positioned near the equipment where a fault current was expected to pass. Recently, this has changed towards the approach used in North America. The most important difference is that the earthing system is designed to ensure that potentials in its vicinity are below appropriate limits.
