Components of a Lightning Rod System
What Are Lightning Rods?
The design of a lightning rod system depends on the complexity of the structure and the soil conditions in the surrounding area.
Lightning Rods are strategically positioned along the roof ridge, dormers and on higher points such as chimneys, cupolas and steeples.
Conductor Cable connects the lightning rods to the ground rods or cable.
Bonding Metallic Objects on the structure to the conductor cable. Common metallic objects include: vents, chimneys, exhaust pipes, skylights, valleys, eaves troughs, down pipes and satellite equipment.
Ground Rods are driven into the soil to connect the system to the ground. If soil is unsuitable for ground rods, Grounding Cable can be used as an alternative.
