Lighting is a very dangerous natural phenomenon, which can lead to severe damage. It is imperative that you protect yourself from lightning both yourself and your home.
The traditional lightning protection system consists of three elements: an air terminal, a down conductor and an earthing switch. Lightning rods are in the form of rods, cables and nets (mesh size 15 by 15 m or less). Modern houses are increasingly protected by mesh lightning rods. They do not violate the appearance of buildings and perform their functions perfectly. Down conductors (metal wire with a diameter of 5-6 mm) are removed from the air terminal, which is reliably welded to both the air terminal and the ground electrode.
The protection of the metal roof is the simplest and is carried out according to traditional technology with the installation of a steel pole at the highest point as an air terminal.
