It is impossible to determine when or where lightning will strike, but the risk remains. Of the violent forces of nature, lightning causes more deaths and property damage than any other. In the United States alone, lightning accounts for more than one billion dollars in property damages annually. Luckily, lightning is one force of nature economically viable from which to protect. With the proper lightning protection system you can rest assured that your systems, investments, and personnel will be protected.
ECS’s charge dissipation terminals, early streamer emitters, and traditional lightning protection components each has its unique method of effectively protecting systems from lightning damages:
Charge Dissipation Terminal products incorporate electrodes that break down into corona before streamers can form; these terminals lower accumulated static charges, consequently mitigating or delaying upward streamer generation.
Early Streamer Emission Terminal products combine the advantages of two systems: the preferred path to ground of a conventional system and state-of-the-art early streamer emitter technology designed for ESEs, which increases the effective protection area 800 times more than that of a conventional system.
Traditional protection components that constitute a conventional system providing the preferred point for lightning termination and safely carries it to ground further dissipating the energy.
Regardless of the system chosen, ECS’s quality, performance, and durability is guaranteed.
