We Find Deficient Lightning Protection Systems Everywhere. This critical through-roof assembly was roofed over by roofers working without the aid of a qualified Lightning Protection Installer from the project kickoff until completion. Our competitors will sell you a partial, non-compliant system like this. This lower roof level also requires an air terminal that is missing from this system. Clamping to the structural steel of sufficient thickness is permitted provided that the connection is made to bare metal. As you can see these type connections are subject to deterioration. Simply twisting the wire together is not an approved connection method for Lightning Protection. A Lightning Protection Expert should be a part of any roof maintenance. Grounding must be buried. This is the work of my competition at the city's minor league ballpark where our families gather for summertime fun. This is an example of total disregard for your safety.

Both easily corrected by shortening the conductor, dispatching qualified workers or supervising your installers. Severed down conductor in hospital loading dock walkway.
