Lightning Protection Ireland was contracted to design and install new lightning protection systems on buildings 27-35 and building 301 at its manufacturing plant in Waterford.
For buildings 27-35, our engineers installed four four-metre air terminals, two two-metre air terminals, 26 25x3mm PVC sheathed aluminium down tapes, and 26 earth electrodes. They also replaced all existing clips.
For building 301, a large number of bonds had to be made on the roof, and we also repaired a number of damaged roof conductors. We installed three four-metre air terminals, 15 two-metre air terminals, eight down tapes and eight new earth electrodes. Again, all existing clips were replaced.
The system was certified to IS EN 63025.
