LIGHTNING PROTECTION

Lightning strikes can spell big trouble for businesses. Sensitive electronic equipment can be damaged by tens of thousands of amps flowing through electrical systems during lightning strikes.

The result can be electronic equipment failure, performance disruption and unscheduled system downtime, all costing businesses.

Avoiding such consequences can be as simple as installing surge protection equipment, which protect electronic equipment from high voltage surges by limiting transient voltage at their point of installation and diverting current to earth. 

AJF Electrical Distrbutors is proud to be the exclusive South Australian supplier of lightning protection solutions made in Australia by Lightning Protection International Pty Ltd (LPI).
