Lightning Protection

Lightning protection systems are critical to preventing damage to a property during severe storms which can produce high intensity lightning strikes. Direct Strike Ltd designs, installs and maintains high-quality lightning protection systems which will deliver protection against high voltage currents that can be as powerful as 1,000,000,000 amps.

Through careful planning, our installations will reliably provide the path of least resistance to the ground, at which point the energy from the lightning strike is safely dissipated.

A correctly designed and installed system is essential for the preservation of the building, its contents and, most importantly, the personnel within them. Our specialised lightning protection systems are the only certain method to protect against the unpredictability and volatility of lightning strikes.

There are 3 main parts to a Structural Lightning protection System:


Air Termination


Down Conductor Network


Earth Termination

Lightning protection systems must only be installed by fully registered contractors, such as Direct Strike Ltd. During initial consultations, we will perform a full assessment of your property, allowing us to develop a tailored protection system which will completely protect against powerful lightning strikes.

Based in Dublin, Direct Strike is one of Ireland's leading lightning protection providers. We design, supply and install custom created protection solutions for all property types.
