WHY YOU NEED LIGHTNING PROTECTION FOR ANTENNAS, RADIO/TV TOWERS, AND STRUCTURES
Many people are hesitant to spend the money to implement customized communications protection or ham radio lightning protection, but the safety of your personnel makes it a worthwhile investment (not to mention the cost of replacing or repairing unprotected structures otherwise).
A lightning strike can destroy a variety of elements of television and radio apparatuses, including antennas, masts/towers, transmitters, amplifiers, and receivers. Even a small power surge could interrupt important communications. In fact, lightning is one of the biggest causes of tv and radio equipment failure. Additionally, replacing this apparatus often carries with it a hefty price tag. Whether you’re considering protection for critical towers, or simply looking into ham radio grounding and lightning protection, implementing a lightning protection system (LPS) on your antennas, towers, and communications structures gives you a safeguard in the event of a lightning strike or electrical storm.
COMMUNICATION TOWERS & ANTENNA | CUSTOM LIGHTNING PROTECTION
Communications equipment like TV and radio antennas are prone to lightning strikes during extreme weather events such as hurricanes, floods, and tornadoes. This is especially problematic in today’s world, where our reliance on these communications is at an all-time high. Beyond interrupting basic TV and radio signals, damaged towers and antennas may prevent the broadcasting of important life-saving messages at times when this information could prove to be the most crucial.
When lightning strikes, antennas and TV/radio towers become prime targets. Without the right high mast lightning protection, a storm will damage wiring systems and other expensive components, putting those in your facility in danger. Whether you use TV/radio equipment to send/receive communications, or just enjoy radio, a comprehensive tower and antenna lightning protection system (LPS) provides you with invaluable benefits.
All TV/radio antenna lightning protection systems should be properly grounded to limit damage from lightning and electrical storms. Our grounding and surge protection designs ensure your communications equipment is well-protected across all weather events.
