Industrail & Commercial

Properly designed and installed earthing and lightning protection systems are required for all industry sectors. We have the insight, skills and experience required to protect any type of structure.

Solar

One of the largest causes of damage to photovoltaic (PV) systems is from lightning and surges. The Solar Division is geared to enable effective protection for rooftop and freefield PV systems.

Thatch

Cutting-edge technology now allows masts to be installed directly onto thatched roofs. This eliminates the need for unsightly free-standing masts.

Residential

Modern homes contain increasingly sophisticated technology that is highly susceptible to over voltages, surges and lightning damage. Our five-step lightning and surge protection system guarantees protection against damages.

Industrial & Commercial

A total LPS consists of both an external and an internal LPS, and both are required to provide effective protection against the direct and indirect effects of lightning.

Properly designed and installed earthing and lightning protection systems are required for all industry sectors. We have the insight, skills and experience required to protect any type of structure.

The Lightning Gurus have a combined experience of over 80 years in protecting all types of structures that range from offices and shopping centres to explosive and classified zones.

All of our tenders include both the internal and external protection systems. This is critical in providing effective protection of people and property against lightning.

The Commercial Division is also able to provide Level One B-BBEE recognition on projects.

Solar

One of the largest causes of damage to photovoltaic (PV) systems is from lightning and surges. The Solar Division is geared to enable effective protection for rooftop and freefield PV systems.

The Solar Division assists PV system installers with costeffective and compliant lightning protection solutions for both rooftop and free-field systems. We provide detailed designs of the LPS, procurement of the right components, installation assistance and certification, as well as PV-specific lightning protection training.

We are also active advisors on various South African Bureau of Standards (SABS) committees, where we share our experience and in-depth understanding on the protection of PV systems from the effects of lightning.

Thatch

Cutting-edge technology now allows masts to be installed directly onto thatched roofs. This eliminates the need for free-standing masts.

This means that significantly shorter mast heights can be used, resulting in a far more aesthetically pleasing solution. These technologies represent the most advanced method of creating effective separation distances and our Gurus have been extensively trained in the installation procedures.

This technology can also be implemented for existing thatch structures, where the old free-standing masts were bent or corroded, causing serious safety concerns.

The Thatch Division also offers a fire-retardant spraying service to provide additional protection against other causes of fire, for example veld fires, electrical failures and arson.

Both thatch protection systems are underwritten and accepted by the major insurance houses, giving owners absolute peace of mind.

Residential

In South Africa lightning strikes the ground over 24 million times every year.

Homeowners are increasingly feeling the effects of the damages caused by direct lightning strikes as well as strikes that happen up to 2km away. Modern electronics are becoming increasing sophisticated, expensive and more susceptible to over voltages, surges and lightning damage. But it’s not just lightning that is the culprit, the increased occurrences of load shedding are a major contributing factor to surge related electrical damage.

We have designed a five-step lightning and surge protection system to protect your home and your most valuable assets against damages and down-time.
