Balmore Specialist Contracts are nearly 30 years in business – during which a wealth of experience in the supply, installation, fitting and maintenance of Lightning Conductor Systems has been established.
Whilst carrying out routine surveys during the course of our works, we have discovered Lightning Conductor Systems, which are being relied upon to protect buildings and equipment whilst taking a direct lightning hit, are not up to standard and offer little or no protection whatsoever. As a matter of course these systems require to be tested annually and any necessary maintenance or upgrading works carried out, thus ensuring full resistance to earth whenever it may be required.
We, at Balmore Specialist Contracts, recognise our responsibility to assist our many clients, who confidently rely upon our services year after year to supply & maintain a Lightning Conductor System that ensures the safety of the public, staff and buildings in full compliance with BS:EN 62305 standards, and that meets the criteria required for insurance purposes.
A good design provides a competent lightning protection system without intruding upon the appearance of any building and so aesthetics is also of great importance. Wherever possible and practical, a suitable part of the structural framework will be utilised thus reducing visible impact and maintaining the integrity of the building.
Once we have been contracted to supply and fit or maintain your new Lightning Conductor System, a Contracts Manager will head a team of suitably qualified Lightning Conductor Engineers and ensure that work is progressed in a professional & efficient manner.
Method Statements and Risk Assessments are carried out prior to the start of each project and will be overseen by our in-house advisors.
All works carried out by Balmore Specialist Contracts complies with BS:EN: 62305 Standards. Annual testing and inspection is required to maintain a fully compliant system, ensuring any defects observed, or high earth readings found, are reported and corrected.
