Greymatters Global are Lightning Protection Design Consultants. So, if you have a concern about Lightning striking your high-value or critical asset. Then you’re in the right place. Understanding the risks posed from Lightning is a fundamental requirement of our process.
“A ship is always safe at the shore – but that is NOT what it is built for.”
― Albert Einstein
Therefore we aim to take ‘Risk’ off the table for you and your high-value critical assets. Also, in the process, present the complexity into an easy-to-understand plan/design or strategy.
Service should mean Service
There are many that profess to give good service. But, getting the right answer, design or strategy can be a drawn-out affair. Also, with little in the way of transparent communication.
No matter what you need from our services, you will experience impeccable response. So, you can get your answers when and how you need them.
Ultimate Lighting Protection Design is PREVENTION
In Risk Management, PREVENTION is better than cure. So, If cost is not your only concern, why wait to treat the devastating effects of a lightning strike. When you can get to the source of the problem and PREVENT lightning from attaching to your structure.
Therefore, if your concern is to take lightning off-the-table as a risk. Then speak to our research engineers now to see if prevention is practical for you.
Not all applications can take a preventative solution. Either because the investment premium required over and above a conventional approach cannot be justified. Also, the structure does not lend itself to a preventative option (these are very rare). Therefore, in these situations, we have conventional Lightning Protection.
Lightning Protection Design – the conventional way, delivered unconventionally.
GreyMatters has a unique mix of specialist experience covering global lightning protection design solutions. And, in some of the most active regions of the planet. This means if you are looking for an effective lighting design service. And, compliant to the local regulations, then you are definitely in the right place.
- Risk Assessments to IEC/SAN/BS EN 62305 2012
- CAD compatible drawings
- Post-installation Audits
- Condition assessment
Where we differ to most is being able to integrate HV earthing/grounding designs into lightning protection. And, able to simulate the combined system’s performance, and fit. BEFORE installation, using leading accepted industry software such as CDEGS.
Or maybe you have some questionable/unanswered earth readings that don’t make sense? In this situation, we can simulate the tests carried out on-site. And, replicate the scenario ‘virtually’ to help get to the bottom and resolve the problem for you.
