Lightning Arrester

A lightning arrester, also known as a lightning diverter or surge arrester, is a device designed to protect buildings, structures, and electrical equipment from damage caused by lightning strikes. Lightning is a powerful natural force that can cause significant damage to property and even pose a risk to human life. Installing a lightning arrester can help you protect your property and equipment from lightning strikes.

A lightning arrester works by providing a path of least resistance for lightning to follow, thereby diverting the electrical current away from the building or structure and into the ground. The device is typically installed at the highest point of a building or structure and connected to a ground rod buried in the earth. When lightning strikes, the arrester provides a low-impedance path for the electrical current to follow, protecting the building and its contents from damage.

If you own a building or structure that is exposed to lightning strikes, it's important to consider installing a lightning arrester. However, the installation process can be complex and requires specialized knowledge and expertise. That's where a professional electrical contractor can help
