In accordance with Australian Standard (AS1768) all “CATCALC” designs are subjected to a site risk assessment to determine the perceived risk from a lightning strike. The risk assessment considers the following.
Usage and contents of the structure(s)
Construction materials of the structure(s)
Height of the structure(s)
Situation at site - Flat ground or elevated above sea level
Average thunder days per annum
LPI®Guardian CAT Terminals (Gold)
LPI®’s ranges of Guardian CAT Terminals are a Controlled Advanced Triggering device which intercept lightning discharges and attaches them to a preferred point. The CAT Terminal has been designed to emit a "streamer” of energy at precisely the right time so that an approaching “leader” is intercepted and brought under control. All Guardian CAT Terminals have been tested in compliance to IEC test standard: IEC 60-1:1989.
