Lightning protection
Equip and protect industrial sites against lightning risk under the Qualifoudre qualification (lightning rod, lightning arrester, risk analysis)

A quarter of industrial plants is struck by lightning at least once every 5 years. Effective protection must be applied to buildings. To do this, technical studies, all the protections to be put in place and the rules of the art to implement the facilities, are regulated by UNE EN 62305-3. Sirea offers trow types of protection :

  • Lightning protection : to protect buildings against impacts of the lightning
