According to the NFPA, lightning strikes cause $451 million dollars in property damage each year. This number says a lot about how destructive and obviously frequent lightning strikes occur. It totally affects buildings which can either be residential or commercial. Businesses have more stakes in their daily and minutely operations. Hence, a destructive lightning strike can do more damage than just the physical structure. It may also adversely influence the business processes and profitability. This gives light to the importance of a Lightning Protection System.
Usually, businesses are situated in business districts with high rise buildings, towering together and closer to the clouds. It makes these structures more prone to lightning strikes that aims to get discharged into the ground. Cirprotec Nimbus® ESE (Early Streamer Emission) Lightning Rods provide protection on structures that are prone to such. It conducts the strike’s electricity and directs it through a designated passageway consisting of wires to the ground. These wires are designed to transport the lightning charge away from the building, avoiding physical damage and short circuit on the electrical structure.
Equipped with ESE technology, Cirprotec Nimbus® series gives an advantage in protection and lower overall cost since fewer rods are needed due to the device’s radius (approximately 120m) protection coverage.
FEB 24 – PowerPro successfully designed, supplied and installed a Lightning Protection Package consisting of Cirprotec Nimbus 15 ESE lightning protection system and Cirprotec CDR-401 lightning discharge counter for UP Baguio Campus.
With up to 120M of safety radius, Nimbus® 15 ESE Lightning Protection should be able to protect the UP Baguio Campus Building from destructive lightning strikes which should have a higher chance of hitting ground given the geographical setting of the Campus, atop a mountain and closer to the clouds.
Equipped with an Early Streamer Emission, Lightning strikes should hit way above the tip of the protection rod, maximizing the safety of the building and the lifespan of the protection system. Included in the package is the installation of Cirprotec CDR-401 Lightning Discharge Counter, an open core technology, clip-on counter that can be used to monitor the integrity of the system taking into account the number of strikes it has taken and to see whether it is time to replace the lightning arrestor, down conduit, and etc.
With its unparalleled expertise in the product and brand, Powerpro’s confident that the Lightning Protection System they installed would benefit the UP Baguio Campus for a long term and would live up to its value.
