As you may be aware, where lightning protection is fitted, it should be professionally tested by a trusting company on an annual basis (no more than 11 months) to comply with the I.S. EN 62305:2011, BS 6651:1999, meaning throughout 12 years your lightning protection system will have been tested during every seasonal month of the year. Applying this tried and tested method will allow the effect of seasonal variations in resistance or other characteristics of the system to be taken into account. Your lightning protection system will last for many years if properly installed and maintained by us.
