DO LIGHTNING RODS ATTRACT LIGHTNING?

No; they do not attract lightning in the event of a strike a protection system simply creates a pre-determined path of low resistance to ground, facilitating a harmless discharge of the lightning strike.

 

OUR HOME IS GROUNDED; DOESN’T THAT PROTECT US?

No; a house may be grounded to assure electrical safety, however, grounding is not intended to prevent lightning damage.

 

OUR ANTENNA IS GROUNDED; DOESN’T THAT PROTECT US?

No; an antenna is not designed to handle a lightning strike and instead, allows dangerous current to enter the home.

 

DON’T TREES PROTECT OUR HOME?

No; many times after trees are struck, the lightning side flashes to the house.

 

CAN’T WE INSTALL OUR OWN LIGHTNING PROTECTION?

No; an improperly installed system may be dangerous. Lightning protection is a very specialized industry requiring trained technicians. A proper system takes into account your homes design, construction, electrical components, soil condition, location and more.

 

WON’T IT RUIN THE AESTHETICS OF OUR HOME?

No; the system can be concealed within the walls during the construction stage . For existing homes and structures, conductors can be semi-concealed.

THANKS TO TOM HAMILTON

I’m the president of the board of directors at Belle Manor East condo’s. Our building is eleven stories tall. After the elevator house was hit by lightning twice in three years I started looking for lighting rods. After a lot checking Tom Hamilton was highly recommended.

THE DANGERS OF LIGHTNING STRIKES

According to ULPA, a single bolt of lightning carrying more than 30 million volts of electricity can rip through roofs, explode brick and concrete and ignite fires. The good news is that lightning is the only force of nature where affordable and reliable protection is available.

ARE YOU PROTECTED?
