Knowing fact from fiction when it comes to lightning safety is important. To better protect our Kingsmill Industries community and get “Down to Earth”, we gathered five commonly known myths, and debunked them to keep you aware of the best ways to stay safe when it comes to lightning.
Sites where the safety and continuity of an earthing infrastructure are paramount (such as substations, power cables and mobile base stations in power transmission, telecoms and rail applications) can now be monitored in real time for theft, degradation and failure.
Earth Bars are manufactured as standard with plain exposed copper bar, this is fine and does not cause any problems as generally the Earth Bars are located on the inside of a building, usually inside a nice, dry, warm substation/communication room or neatly situated indoors, out of the way in a dry location.
Kingsmill Industries (UK) Ltd are pleased to announce that we have now become an official FPAL registered supplier to the Oil & Gas sector for the manufacture and supply of Earthing Materials & Lightning Protection Products.
Kingsmill would like to thank María López from PSR Pararrayos (Spain) for the contribution to our blog page.
