Traditional lightning protection system consisting of lightning protection mesh and lightning rods, can be used not for all objects, and not always.
For example, for soil analysis or an experiment, a group of experts travels to an open space (eg, field) and starts the work. Suddenly, thunderclous appear and there is no chance to quickly find shelter. What to do in such a situation?
For such cases, Thor Guard lightning warning system is used, which detects generation of storm clouds in the distance of 15 km and runs an alert over a large area. Thanks to this, people have plenty of time to take measures to protect themselves or electrical equipment, located in the open space.
We offer you examples of installation of such warning systems.
On construction sites, mining (mines, wellssites, pits)
On sports facilities, for example, on the golf course
In parks and resting places
As a rule, a lot of people gather in all these places and their evacuation in an emergency can take up to several hours, while storm clouds will reach the area much faster.
Thor Guard notification system is used worldwide on different objects. Systems of external and internal lightning protection, which protects the site from lightning damage and lightning effects, are installed together with it. Read more about external lightning protection system.
