Lightning is one the most powerful and destructive natural phenomenon, presenting a real and significant risk to life, structures, operations and electronic systems.

Direct lightning strikes to structures can result in physical damage, ignition of fires, explosions and risk of electric shock. Indirect lightning strikes propagate transient over-voltages, which degrade and disrupt electronic systems/services (see Surge Protection). These induced surges can radiate up to two kilometres from the actual strike zone.

The risks and consequential effects of a direct or indirect lightning strike can be mitigated by the application of lightning protective measures in accordance with the latest British standard BSEN 62305 series.
