Did you know...
Singapore has anywhere between 171 and 186 lightning days on an average year*. Each square kilometer of land in Singapore can be struck up to 16 times annually. This makes us effectively one of the lightning capitals of the world. An average lightning strike carries a powerful current of up to 200,000 amps. In comparison, a 100-watt bulb carries a current of about 0.4 amp.
Even Singapore’s iconic Merlion statue in Marina Bay was not spared as it was struck by lightning in 2009. The lightning strike created a hole the size of the football and required the attraction to be closed for a few days for repair work to be carried out.
As Singapore is exposed to the elements and inclement weather all year round, stringent codes for lightning protection are enforced. Most public places in Singapore are protected. Buildings, observation towers and other structures meant to house people must be shielded from lightning by law.
Don’t be a lightning strike statistic. Find out how to protect your installations, assets and most importantly human resources from the devastating effects of a lightning strike.
