LIGHTNING PROTECTION SYSTEMS

We introduce one of the pioneer companies in this industry involved in design, manufacturing and engineering of the "LIGHTING PROTECTION SYSTEMS", and its related items.

The products and services of the company conforming to the following codes and standards.
1) NFPA-780 code entitle "Lighting protection Systems"
2) Underwriters Laboratory Standard No UL-96A (Installation Requirements for Lighting Protection Systems)
3) Institute of Lighting protection Standard No LPI-175.

How the ALS prevents: The lightning rod, which uses the point discharge (corona effect) to attract the stepped leader of a thundercloud, is constantly disspating ions into the atmosphere. By multiplying the number of discharge points thousands of times, the ALS series dissipation based system, or charge transfer system, was developed to gather the static build up or electrical charge on an object and rabidly dissipate the charge into atmosphere.

Lightning Protection Systems (L.P.S) requires the following steps:

STEP I: Site Survey
In order to erect a L.P.S. it requires the followings:
1) Drawing of a plot plan (Elevation & Roof Plan).
2) Detailed drawing for the facility including its roof.
3) Drawings for Grounding & Earthling net for the existing facilities entrance locations for power source. Telecom,…etc.


STEP II: Engineering and Design
In this stage the complete design of the system will be performed according to the National Fire Protection Association Code No NFPA - 780 (Lighting Protection Code) latest edition. This will include:
1) Detailed work drawing for the system.
2) Preparation of the "bill of quantities" for all the required materials.
3) The final design will be certified by "The Lighting Protection Institute" (LPI) as a third party. Such certification includes compliance with the NFPA - 780 Code.
4) Erection instruction according to the requirement of the latest edition of Standard No. "UL-96A". (Underwriters Laboratories Inc.) or according to LPI for Installation Requirements for Lightning Protection Systems.
5) Post erection maintenance procedure (according to NFPA-780)

Step III: Material Supply
In this stage all the required materials will be supplied in accordance to the "Bill of quantities" prepared in Step II.
All the materials supplied shall be certified and labeled by the "Underwriters Laboratory". The UL shall provide a 100% inspection service to measure the quality of the components prior to their shipment from our principle's factory.

Step IV: Supervision of Erection
1) in this stage technical staff of our principle will supervise system erection on the site. Client personnel or any contractor may perform the erection. The requirements of the Ul-96A and LPI-175 Standard will be applied.
2) After erection the "as built drawing" will be prepared and submitted to the client.

The system shall be inspected on site by an Underwriters Laboratories Inc.(UL) inspector and / or LPI inspector.

Any corrective action required by the inspector shall be performed on our principle account and care.

Finally a "Certificate of Compliance" will be issued and submitted to the client.
