Lightning Damage

Lightning damage can be very dangerous, very unpredictable, very costly and can occur more often than most people realize.

According to a published 2009 report from The National Lightning Safety Institute... lightning damage is responsible for an estimated $5 billion in insurance losses annually. These losses cover both business and residential scenarios.

It's safe to say, much of the damage is to electrical and electronic equipment. It is also safe to say much of this damage could have been avoided or mitigated with the proper lightning surge protection systems in place.

Using the right surge protection products, placed in the right locations, with the right installs, are an integral part of a lightning surge protection system.

The pictures below show some examples of damage resulting from unprotected electrical and electronic systems.

Since the occurrence of this damage... measures have been taken to protect these and additional systems using high quality, high performance surge protection equipment.

Sensitive and Critical Electronics Lightning Damage


Using the best surge protector options could

The two images above are views from a damaged circuit board... front and back view. Notice the burn in the lower left corner of the left image. The second image shows the same damage from the back side of the circuit board.

These two images are of a similar circuit board... but have different damage. Again... the images are views of the front and back sides. Notice the burn damage on the center circuits near the bottom of both circuit boards.


The above pictures represent thousands of dollars in equipment damage alone. The amount of down-time, repair costs and lost revenue adds up very quickly as well. Overall, this preventable damage can reach into the tens of thousands of dollars... if not more.

Don't allow this happen to your electronics and electrical system. Take preventative action and protect your sensitive equipment and bottom line.
