Air Terminals, Bases, Brackets & Couplings
The air termination network is the point of connection for a lightning strike. It typically consists of a meshed conductor arrangement covering the roof of the structure.
Through use of air rods, raised conductor or mesh, a Lightning Protection System designer can achieve appropriate positioning of the air termination in line with the three methods proposed by IEC/BS EN 62305, namely:
- The rolling sphere method
- The protective angle method
- The mesh method
Furse air termination products are specifically designed to provide highly effective protection against the risks and consequences of a direct lightning strike.
All these components link together with our copper or aluminium conductors, which provide the low resistance path for lightning current – from strike point, safely to earth.
