Earthing and Lightning Protection
Lightning strikes the earth sixty times per minute on average.
The tallest structures in cities across the world are struck by lightning regularly. All exposed communications towers and masts are vulnerable to a direct strike whilst historic and heritage buildings are extremely vulnerable because of early construction methods.
