Design & Implementation
Code of Practice for the protection of structures against lightning have been with us for many years – the first published as CP33 as long ago as 1985. Since that date, the standard had been revised once in 1996, with further amendments in 1999. The current standard in force being SS 555: 2010 Part 1 to 4: Code of Practice for protection against lightning:
- SS 555: Part 1: 2010 – General principles
- SS 555: Part 2: 2010 – Risk management
- SS 555: Part 3: 2010 – Physical damage to structures and life hazard
- SS 555: Part 4: 2010 – Electrical and electronic systems within structures
Some fundamental changes are embodied in this latest Code due largely to a more scientific approach, and an ever increasing knowledge of lightning theory. The use of advanced electronic equipment has also enabled a more accurate collection and analysis of the parameters of lightning. This in turn has been used to define more precisely when and where lightning protection will be required.
Despite ever improving national and international standards, fatalities and costly damage still occurs, often through a complete lack of understanding, or disregard of the principles behind modern lightning protection theory and practice.
