This particular subject is often over looked by Strata, Commercial, Industrial, large Aged Care facilities and homes which are located in and on high prone lightning strike regions are hill tops within a city such as Sydney.

All it takes in one bolt of lightning to hit a church roof top, or perhaps an antenna perched at the highest point of a 400 bedroom hotel and "IF" that commercial business hasn't got the right lightning protection in place to divert that extra high voltage you can kiss good bye to all those flat screen TV's and be prepared for the onslaught of complaints from your hotel guests not having their TV channels that evening.

It is standard procedure to have a high probability of lightning strike, building audited every 12 months.

This is to make sure:-

  • Firstly to evaluate through strict Standards Australia (AS1768/2007) guidelines if your property should require a lightning protection system (LPS) - or - if you already have a LPS then our experience team will visualise if there are any possible problems existing from either (a) if the previous installer overlooked something (b) you've been hit with a few lightning strikes through out the year and your LPS has broken down,
  • Measure the effectiveness of the existing LPS,
  • Continuity testing across conductors and the total LPS,
  • Test the locations soil for earth impedance,
  • Audit the protection devices currently in place in case there was a future lightning strike,
  • This "audit" takes time and is not simple to do taking on board many unforeseen factors hence we gather this data and supply you with a clear break down analysis.


  • After our team evaluates your site and sifts through the data we collected we work out if your location is vulnerable to a lightning strike. There are different levels of vulnerability and we will discuss this with you at the time.
  • We will offer recommendations and digital photos (perhaps even videos) of your existing LPS or suggest the best way we solve a possible fault or how we would install a new LPS,
  • Explain to you the equipment and materials required for such a suggested LPS,
  • And finally, supply you with a price to complete the recommendations.
  • We understand clients need to work within a confine budget however, the overall outcome to a major lightning strike we bet, will far out weigh the safety of your staff and the building with a designed LPS.
