Our Lightning Protection System Design Process

  1. Site Survey: LES performs an on-site survey. During the visit we inquire about your most critical processes.
  2. Written Report: We compile a written report detailing our findings, including photo documentation. It also included details for bringing a system into compliance.
  3. System Engineering: Using the information collected, LES engineers design a system to protect life, property and sensitive electronic equipment.
  4. Product Selection: After a system is engineered, we select components and write them into the specification.
  5. System Installation: Our group of in-house installers, as well as our strategic partners, assure the system installation is as engineered.
