Our worldwide team of Engineers and Designers will ensure the best possible service for your Earthing, Lightning Protection and Surge Protection needs.
Wallis are accredited to ISO9001:2015 Quality Management System for our design and manufacturing services and are soon to be accredited to OHSAS 18001 for our Health & Safety Management System as well as operating a compliant ISO14001 Environmental Management system.
We are also accredited to design for and work on the Network Rail Infrastructure under the Achilles RISQS scheme, as well as being certified members of Constructionline, CHAS, UVDB, Supply-Line & CIRAS.
Our aim is to design and supply cost effective Earth Electrode, Lightning Protection and Surge Protection Systems, using the minimum material to produce the best possible results.
Lightning Protection Systems
‘There are no devices or methods capable of modifying the natural weather phenomena to the extent that they can prevent lightning discharges. Lightning flashes to, or nearby, structures (or lines connected to the structures) are hazardous to people, to the structures themselves, their contents and installations as well as to lines. This is why the application of lightning protection measures is essential.’ [BS EN 62305-1:2011]
A. N. Wallis & Co Ltd are one of the world’s leading Electrical Earthing & Lightning Protection component and material manufacturers and suppliers. To complement our highly successful material supply business, A N Wallis offer a complete Lightning Protection Design Service to BS EN 62305.
Lightning Protection Systems are often seen as inert and may sometimes be dismissed as cost saving or forgotten about until a late stage of the project. But should these systems fail due to incompetent design or the use of cheap, substandard components, the resulting events may be catastrophic or even lethal.
Our team of highly experienced professional Engineers & Technicians design Lightning Protection Systems (LPS) to the IEC 62305 standard or local derivative.
Our designs not only comply with the relevant National and International Standards, but also follow the ethos of the UK Governments’ Construction, Design & Management (CDM) Regulations 2015.
Some of the areas we are working in are:-
Process plants static earthing
Using our own highly rated bespoke Risk Assessment software, we are able to determine which level of Lightning Protection System is required to give a compliant installation based upon the size of the building, what the building is used for and the likely occupancy of the site.
We will then be able to advise whether the site requires a Level I, II, III or IV system in compliance with IEC 62305.
Only once we have confidence that the design parameters are met, will a full ‘for construction’ style drawing be produced.
Our in-house Design and Manufacture of Surge Protection Devices (SPD) as well as design consultancy gives a truly unique Lightning Protection design approach to both structural and electronic systems protection.
