The System
The Lightning rod was invented by Benjamin Franklin in 1749 with the sole purpose of intercepting a lightning strike and directing the electricity safely into the ground.

These systems do not attract lightning nor do they deter lightning from striking – they are designed to control a direct lightning strike by directing it to the system ground.

The strike happens in an instant and is diverted to ground so quickly by the low resistance conductors that the heat generated by the strike does not have time to build to a flash point.

Whether commercial or residential projects, lightning protection systems are semi-concealed on the building exterior or are completely concealed on the interior during construction.

By investing in a lightning protection system by Capitol Lightning Protection, you are investing in lifelong security and a protection system that is working for you 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
