LIGHTNING PROTECTION

UL certified system installation + system testing + system maintenance and repair + lightning protection troubleshooting and consultation

Adding a lightning protection system to a building increases protection from physical damage, protects electrical systems and appliances and reduces the possibility of fire.  WQSi installs lightning protection systems for any size or type structure. We are one of Underwriters Laboratories (UL) listed installers and we only use UL listed copper, aluminum and stainless steel materials including bimetallic couplings to protect against corrosion. We offer concealed systems during new construction or semi-concealed systems that blend into the aesthetics of an existing structure.  Contact us for a quote.

UL CERTIFIED SYSTEM INSTALLATION

A Lightning Protection System is comprised of several components: Air Terminals (Lightning Rods), Roof Conductors, Downlead Conductors, Ground Electrodes (Ground Rod, Ground Plate, Etc.) and Surge Suppression. There are rules in the standards for each of these components.  WQSi is qualified to install to NFPA 780 and UL96A specifications.

Types

  • Concealed

  • Non-concealed

  • Commercial

  • Military

  • Industrial

SYSTEM TESTING

A lightning protection system for commercial buildings should be checked periodically, and immediately after a new roof or any roof repairs, installations of anything on the roof, roof mount A/C units, and other mechanicals that have air terminals and cables attached.  We inspect your current system for deficiencies and recommend how best to protect your structure.

SYSTEM MAINTENANCE AND REPAIR

One of the most important factors to keeping your structure safe from lightning is doing maintenance checks on your existing system be assured your system is in proper working order.   We make certain to inspect your existing system for deficiencies and provide repairs or upgrades to keep your assets safe. 

A lightning protection system is intended to last the life of the structure it protects and typically only requires maintenance if a building is changed structurally or mechanically. Such changes might include a new roof, an addition, new electrical service etc. At WQSi we use only UL listed materials and installation methods in compliance with nationally recognized safety standards as recognized by Underwriters Laboratories.

LIGHTNING PROTECTION TROUBLESHOOTING AND CONSULTATION

Your facility sustained lightning damage.  Was your lightning protection system installed properly?  Was it in working order or in need of repair?  Out of warranty?  Did you sustain more damage then what was expected?  As a UL listed installer WQSi is available for consultation and review as well as provide insight into upgrading or replacing the system to offer the protection your structure needs moving forward.
