BS EN protection against lightning is substantially larger than its predecessor and has been written and compiled by experts from around the world. Containing some pages it is more complex and covers a wider range of issues. BS EN Is a series of publications in four parts, all of which have to be taken into consideration when designing for lightning protection. This is an introduction to the other parts of the standard and covers the General principles involved in the design. It defines the relationship between damage and loss that are the basis for the risk assessment calculations in part 2 and also introduces the concepts Lightning Protection Zones LPZs and separation distances used when preparing a lightning protection scheme.
The definitions of lightning current parameters are also provided and these used in selection and implementation of protection measures as detailed In parts 3 and 4. This is significantly more detailed than in previous standards and details the process for determining the risk of lightning damage to structures and their contents.
The results of the risk assessment determine the level of Lightning Protection System LPS , both internal and external, required. This part of the new standard relates most closely with BS and deals with the protection measures to be used in and around a structure. It gives guidance on the design of both internal and external Lightning Protection Systems.
Our Suppliers range of products are tested by Independent testing facilities and comply with the BS-EN series of standard for the manufacture of lightning protection components. This standard covers the protection of electrical and electronic systems within structures. Previous standards for Lightning Protection recommended the use of specific materials for lightning protection components.
Now with the release of BS EN series of standards the focus is on performance and testing. This standard consists of the following parts.
