ABC’s of Lightning Protection

  • Always engage an expert firm with proven knowledge, experience.

When selecting a firm for Lightning Protection, it’s important to choose one with a proven track record of knowledge, honesty, and integrity.

Harger has over 50 years of experience in designing and certifying lightning protection systems across the country.

  • Be sure your system has an Underwriters Laboratories Master Label Certificate.

When installing a lightning protection system, it’s important to ensure that the contractor can provide a Master Label Certificate from Underwriters Laboratories (UL). UL is a trusted inspection organization dedicated to public safety and has over 100 years of experience in testing and inspecting lightning protection systems.

  • Compare quality before you buy.

When purchasing a lightning protection system, it’s important to avoid basing the decision solely on price or purchasing from untrained sellers. To ensure a safe and quality system, it’s recommended to ask for a design drawing and a list of materials included in the contract price and compare these between proposals. It’s important to choose a well-engineered, high-quality system and avoid cheaper, low-quality options. Harger produces only high-quality components that are factory tested and inspected by Underwriters Laboratories and are identified by the UL Listed marking and control number 50H2.
