Strikes More Than Just Trees!
Posted by Ryan @ESCS on 7/10/2012
It may come as a shock to learn that lightning strikes cause between
$4-5 billion dollars in damages every year .
Researchers estimate that 22 million lightning flashes strike ground in the US
each year, any of which could cost you hundreds, thousands, or even millions of
dollars in damages ! As we become more
dependent on IT networks for communications and sharing of information,
protection for these systems become priority. Due to the increased risk of
lighting damage to crucial IT systems in recent years, the growth of lighting
protection technologies (LPT) has become a topic of global significance.
Industries including utilities, nuclear power and water treatment plants,
seaports, warehouses, military, airports, residential and public construction,
broadcast, and healthcare are now under pressure to install advanced lightning
protection systems in all new and existing structures to prevent costly damages
caused by lightning strikes. Various state legislatures are also lobbying for
installation of lightning protection systems in hospitals, schools, and other
public buildings . Wireless and
telecommunication sectors that utilize base stations and control towers are
especially exposed to risks of lightning damage. Damage within these industries
includes communication failure, data loss, failure of servers and server
protections, and physical damages to appliances and structures .
