Lightning Protection

About the lightning protection

Every year, thousands of accidents worldwide are caused by lightning’s direct or indirect effects. Figures show that 25% of industries are struck at least once every five years. Many public authorities have therefore imposed specific regulations.

As a major player in risk prevention in France, DEKRA meets the needs of the operator concerning the regulatory compliance of his installation to protect it against the effects of lightning by offering the following missions:

The lightning risk assessment is based on an evaluation of the risk of damage that may be caused to property and the public as a result of a lightning strike. It’s conducted in accordance with EN 62305-2 (“Lightning Protection - Part 2 Risk Assessment”). The purpose of the lightning risk assessment is to accurately define the property to be protected and to maintain the necessary levels of protection for the installations and the continuing compliance with our technical study.

DEKRA’s range of technical advisory services on the design and use of lightning protection is informed by DEKRA’s Lightning Technical Study, allowing the precise design of protection concepts and solutions in compliance with current standards and guides.

As DEKRA is independent of manufacturers who may also be installers and/or maintainers, our 3rd party lightning protection inspections are a guarantee of what is necessary for complete protection.

Ensure the conformity of a lightning protection installation by verification, "visual" or "complete", with reference to the Verification and Maintenance Manual defined in the Lightning Technical Study.
