With an ever-changing landscape of legislation and health and safety regulations, more and more people, businesses and organisations are looking at providing lightning protection to their estate than ever before, meaning they require full System Design & Installation.
It is therefore vital that when doing so there is the availability of specialist providers to help and assist with the design, quotation and installation of systems for buildings and structures which are either being newly built or have never had lightning protection previously installed. With an extensive portfolio of system installations on buildings (old and new), chimneys, churches, cathedrals, tower blocks and monuments, STS Group are the perfect partner to offer that support.
Our ability to work directly with end user clients, through M&E contract packages for Electrical Contractors or directly for Main Contractors on new builds. So whatever your requirement it is highly unlikely that it will be the first time we have encountered it, designed it or installed it.
There are a number of myths regarding the types of properties which require lightning protection, most notably the “old wives tale” which says the lightning will always strike the highest point, this is simply not the case and there a number of videos widely and publicly available on YouTube for you to see this displayed.
At STS Group we take a much more scientific approach to the design stage and take into consideration far more relevant things such as the location of the property, the use of the property, the regularity and duration of use of the property and the population density of the property when in use. All of these factors will determine an indicator of risk and suggest the required level of system installation required.
Our diligence and reassurance doesn’t end in the science. Once we have been contracted to supply and install a system a thorough process of handover from the design team to the installation engineers takes place. Full system specifications and site specific access requirements are covered in detail, full health and safety package of Risk Assessment and Method Statements provided and only fully trained and experienced operatives being deployed, using only primary market materials for your peace of mind.
