Commercial

Commercial structures have unique requirements that many other facilities don’t have to worry about. The visual impact on the architect’s design is a critical design requirement. Nearly always an architectural design feature can be incorporated into the Lightning Protection System to minimize the visual impact.

Data Centers & Communication

Data Centers & Communication

Data Centers & Communication

Data center and communication system availability has become the Achilles heel of a company’s success due to the high economic impact of outages. Designers strive to optimize their reliability through redundancy and maintainability. A comprehensive Facility Protection System is a key part of risk management.

Health Care

Health Care

Health Care

There is no more critical application of Lightning Protection than in the Healthcare industry. These facilities incorporate many of the same issues of commercial structures while having the design complexities of a data center. Only a comprehensive design process can adequately meet all of these combined needs.

Industrial
