Omega Red The UK Market Leader in Electrical Earthing and Lightning Protection

Lightning Protection Testing

Maximising your return on investment in earthing and lightning protection requires regular maintenance to ensure optimum system performance, and it is a legal requirement that lightning protection testing is carried out regularly.

The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 state that lightning protection systems should be tested in accordance with the relevant British Standard (which will be either BS 6651:1999 or BS EN 62305, depending upon when the system was installed) at maximum intervals of twelve months. Omega Red Group recommends that your system is tested at eleven month intervals in order to take account, over time, of all seasonal variations in resistance or other characteristics of the system.

Our nationwide team of expert engineers undertakes detailed inspection and testing of existing earthing and lightning protection systems, whether or not these were originally installed by Omega Red Group. Following the test, in addition to your test certificate, you will also receive a comprehensive report on the condition of the system with our recommendations for repairs or upgrades where necessary to restore it to a compliant condition.

All Omega Red Group employees who report on Lightning Protection have proven competence to inspect and test systems in accordance with BS 6651:1999 and BS EN 62305.

Regular maintenance will ensure that, when your lightning protection system is called upon to protect your people, building and critical business assets, it is in a condition capable of doing so.
