Earthing Systems

Earthing systems play a vital role in a coordinated lightning and surge protection system. It is responsible for safely dissipating the lightning currents to ground. At Lightning Protection Ireland we use a wide range of materials in numerous configurations to achieve the required resistance level as set out in ISEN 62305:2011.

Lightning Protection Ireland experts can:

  • Design earthing systems for any application.
  • Install Low & High voltage earth farms.
  • Install Generator Earths
  • Provide advice on the best materials to use in existing ground conditions.
  • Supply and install all materials needed for installation.
  • Carry out soil resistivity tests.

Typical Grounding System

Types of earthing arrangements commonly used are:

  • Copper-bond earth electrodes
  • Copper lattice earth mats
  • Copper ring tapes
  • Soil enhancement agents
  • Deep driven bore holes
  • Sub station earthing

All of Lightning Protection Ireland’s earthing works comply with IS EN 62305 and BS 7430.
