We can supply on demand details of standard connection methods for incorporation into technical specifications. All our installations costs include the testing and certification of lightning protection systems. Please contact us for a price quote.

Annual Inspection, Testing and Certification

Your system will last for many years if it is properly installed and maintained. The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 requires that Lightning Protection systems are inspected, tested and certified in accordance with either BS6651 or BS EN 62305 depending on the system.

Section 5 of British Standards 6651 states that all Lightning Protection Conductors and Earth Installations should be “visually inspected and tested regularly at fixed intervals, preferably not exceeding 12 month periods”. It is beneficial to choose a period slightly shorter than 12 months, such as 11 months, in order to allow the effect of seasonal variations in resistance or other characteristics of the system to be taken into account. Staff are available now to quote you a price on inspection, testing and certification so telephone us to talk to one of our design team and get a quote today.

Highly Experienced Technicians

Our team of highly experienced technicians will carry out detailed testing and inspection of completed installations in order to produce a certificate. This includes verifying the installation is in accordance with the correct specification and is in compliance with all current legislation.

Each Earth Installation and lightning protection system will be electronically tested for resistance to the ground and assuming all results are below the overall 10 Ohms maximum specified, a Certificate of Compliance can then be issued.
