Lightning Protection for Systems

Every year, there are approximately 15-20 million lightning strikes that affect 30% of U.S. businesses. These lightning strikes cause over $10 billion in damage, and the average building is hit with 20,000 amps of electricity every 5-20 years.

Our mission is to provide total site and facility lightning protection through a comprehensive grounding and lightning protection system. We accomplish this by designing site-specific lightning protection, grounding solutions, surge suppression, and lightning warning systems. These systems provide solutions to protect your operations and infrastructures while offering peace of mind. Never worry about downtime again!

About Lyncole

In 1985, Betty Robertson, E.E., founded Lyncole XIT® Grounding. Prior to starting her own company, Betty worked as an engineer for Continental Telephone, which she’s credited as one of the leaders in developing site protection and grounding protection for telephony equipment and contributing to the creation of industry standards. She then joined Hughes Aircraft in Torrance, California. At the time, Hughes was using a new invention called the XIT as their standard for grounding systems. The XIT product was designed to supply its own moisture for adding to the electrical conductivity for grounding purposes. The XIT system provided a unique, low resistance, and long life grounding system. When the XIT patent became available Betty seized the opportunity. She put both of her degrees, one in business and one in engineering, to work. Betty started Lyncole, buying the rights to the XIT System and established the only full-time staff of experienced grounding engineers in the industry.

In 2008, Lyncole became a division of VFC Lightning Protection. Together, Lyncole and VFC are the industry’s innovative leaders with the most experienced staff with over 100 years of combined experience. Additionally, Lyncole has taken its experience and created education services that are unmatched in the industry, providing public and private courses where attendees can get real world and up-to-date experience combined with hands-on demonstrations. Our foundation was built on the belief that every company, nationwide, from ground to roof, including personnel and equipment, demand the best grounding and lightning protection systems, fault currents, and transient noise. Our expertise makes the axiom of “doing it right the first time” a reality with a significant cost-saving benefit.
