The Need For Lightning Protection & What It Does 

Lightning is one of nature's most destructive forces and it can have extremely damaging effects on buildings and infrastructure if they do not have adequate earthing systems to provide protection against lightning protection.

With the ability to deliver over 200,000 amps of power in a matter of seconds, lightning discharges a phenomenal amount of power and extreme damage and destruction. 

The lightning protection system is designed to intercept, conduct and disperse a lightning strike. Furse Earth Bars

​A reliable lightning protection system must have both structural lightning protection alongside transient overvoltage. The Furse 'Total Solution' ensures that buildings have complete protection to ensure the safety and integrity of the employees inside the building and the very fabric of the building.

Furse Copper Earth Tape

An integral part of the lightning protection system is copper earth tape. With high conductivity, Furse offers a comprehensive range of copper earthing tapes. Available in a wide range of sizes and colours, the range of Furse copper tapes are UV stabilised and with optional PVC sheath covering in order to reduce the impact upon the external system. 

Furse Earthing Rods

Furse earthing rods are copperbond and are one of the best and most economical earth rods available. Constructed of molecularly bonded, 99.9% pure electrolytic copper – Furse earth rods are made around a low carbon steel core and not sheathed. As well as being extremely resistant to corrosion, the steel used has extremely high tensile strength meaning they can be safely driven by power hammers to great depths.
