Lightning Protection Reinstatement Works

Horizon Specialist Contracting are currently undertaking Lightning Protection Reinstatement/Upgrade works to a block of flats in London, prior to a complete refurbishment of the old building. 

The Lightning Protection system is being upgraded from BS 6651 to the latest standard BS EN 62305. A level one system is being installed based on the results of the risk assessment undertaken. 

The first phase of the works were completed via external rope acess using the DW200 'A' Frame Anchor system (Pictured below). This is rated for 2 man use, and was utilised for safe access for the installation of down conductors. 

Horizon are to install a 5m x 5m grid air termination system, and bond all metallic items onto the system. 

This project is expected to be completed by Autumn 2016.
