With our expertise and knowledge of earthing systems, our team of Earthing Consultants are able to assist in all aspects of the design process, procurement and installation process.
Our experienced Earthing Consultants and technicians work closely with architects, builders, project managers and consultants to ensure that a correct and cost effective earthing solution is provided for each project.
Lightning Protection International will listen intensively and quickly gain an understanding of our client’s requirements, before responding effectively and competitively to their needs.
Using the latest risk assessment software our Earthing Consultants can carry out extensive risk assessments to EN 62305 to determine which class of earthing system is required.
Our Earthing Consultants can:
- Design earthing system solutions for any application
- Install Low and High voltage earth farms
- Install Generator Earths
- Provide expert advice on the best materials to use in existing ground conditions
- Supply and install all materials needed for installation
- Carry out soil resistivity tests
During Lightning Protection International’s site surveys accurate soil resistivity readings are taken at various depths across the site to form the basis of the earthing system design to EN 62305 and EN 50552.
EN 62305 stipulates structures housing extensive electronic systems such as Data Centers, be provided with a Type B Electrical Earthing arrangement.
A Type B Electrical Earthing arrangement compromises a ring electrode sited around the periphery of the structure, in contact with the soil for at least 80% of its total length, or a foundation earth electrode.
Types of earthing arrangements commonly used by our Earthing Consultants are:
- Copper-bond earth electrodes
- Copper lattice earth mats
- Copper ring tapes
- Soil enhancement agents
- Deep driven bore holes
- Sub station earthing
All of Lightning Protection International’s earthing works comply with EN 62305 and BS 7430.
