AN Wallis Earthing And Lightning Protection

AN Wallis manufacture earthing, lightning protection and low voltage surge protection. The product range includes copper earth rods, earth bars, copper tape, earth clamps and aluminium tapes.

Earthing and lightning protection are necessary to protect against the potentially catastrophic damage that can be caused by a lightning strike and the resulting short circuiting.

Lightning strikes can deliver as much as 300 million volts of power. This level of energy delivered in one strike to a building will naturally cause often irreparable damage. It is therefore necessary to have the correct earthing and lightning protection.

This protection is commonly supplied in the form of earth rods, copper earth tape, earth bars and conductors to transfer the energy from the lightning away from the building and into the earth.

Wallis earthing and lightning protection is used the world over to protect buildings from lightning strikes and to provide surge protection.

AN Wallis Earthing And Lightning Protection – Copper Earthing Products

AN Wallis copper earthing products provide protection to both equipment and personnel against fault currents. The earthing system is connected to the down conductor which forms part of the lightning protection system.

The earth rod is then driven into the ground as close as possible to the building and down conductor and are usually spaced at specified intervals.

Where the driving of copper earth rods into the ground is not possible, shorter rods with a larger diameter can be used. In addition, copper earth mats and earth plates can be used in place of earth rods.

AN Wallis Lightning Protection Earthing Tapes

AN Wallis copper earth tapes are flat, tapes manufactured from copper to various widths and thicknesses. The tape is installed down the side of a building whether it be a church or other structure that may be struck by lightning.

The purpose of the tape is to direct the power from the lightning down the length of copper and into the earthing unit that is generally buried sub-surface. Each length of tape is connected directly to a down conductor to guide the power away from the building.

This prevents the electricity from the lightning strike causing damage to the building and the power can be harnessed and used for good.

Copper earth tapes from AN Wallis are available as bare copper, LSF, PVC and green/yellow insulated copper earth tapes.

Earth tapes from AN Wallis are also available in bare aluminium.
