ATS stands at the forefront of companies offering Atlanta lightning protection services because we provide system inspections and repairs of superior quality.
Lightning in Atlanta
Lightning strikes cause businesses in the United States an average of $108 million per year in property damage, according to the Insurance Information Institute. Implementing an effective lightning protection system can mitigate or completely prevent structural damage to their property and electrical damage to their equipment in the event of an intense storm. Although many businesses across the country implement lightning protection systems, it is a greater concern for Georgia businesses than those in most other states.
The state of Georgia experiences the 8th most lightning strikes per square mile every year. Likely due to a combination of characteristics influenced by its location — such as high temperatures and humidity — and its population density in metro areas like Atlanta, Georgia also routinely ranks as one of the top three states for insurance settlements resulting from lightning damage every year. Applied Technical Services answers local businesses looking for severe weather support with a variety of Atlanta lightning protection services.
The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA)recommends under its standard concerning lightning protection systems (NFPA 780) that owners have it inspected once a year. By performing annual inspections on our clients’ lightning protection systems, ATS not only helps ensure they remain compliant with this nationally recognized safety standard but also fully functional for the foreseeable future.
Our consulting engineers can spot issues early in their development if clients are on a regular inspection schedule, applying preventative maintenance measures as needed instead of repairs after the system has already been compromised.
Once something has gone wrong, whether due to the system’s age or an outstanding event that leaves it damaged, ATS can repair clients’ lightning protection systems as well. Our engineers show up to every inspection equipped to handle minor fixes they may find. Significant repairs after one or more major component failures may take specialized tools, however, and require a separate visit. Whether on the day of or the day after, ATS can perform repairs to ensure clients’ lightning protection systems continue protecting their assets.
Whether a business has never implemented a lightning protection system, or theirs is compromised beyond repair, ATS can install new components or an entire system to keep clients covered. Companies in Atlanta cannot afford to let their property go through a storm season without proper protection — let us help you implement a system that will keep your assets safe from lightning damage.
ATS follows guidelines set by the following nationally recognized standards when servicing our clients’ lightning protection systems:
