Lightning Mast Protection Systems
Area protection for fixed and portable assets - LBA Technology offer the PLP-30 family of fixed and portable lightning protection masts and kits. Based on a light weight, rugged 30 foot (9.1m) aluminum mast; various mounting styles, grounding systems, and UL Listed air terminals are offered. PLP-30 lightning mast components are under 9 feet (2.7m) long for easy surface or air transport and rapid field installation.PLP-30 Lightning Masts are recommended for a wide range of lightning protection applications where it is impossible or undesirable to attach conventional lightning terminals. Other models in the series share the same attributes and differ only in height and weight.PLP- 30 Lightning Masts provide a cone of protection within which lightning charges are diverted to the mast and grounded instead of to the protected object. Multiple PLP-30 masts may be used to protect extended areas. Protected areas may be determined by use of the widely accepted "rolling sphere" concept. For example, a single PLP-30 mast will protect 8 foot (2.4 m) high portable buildings wholly within a 40 foot (12.2 m) radius. An array of five PLP-30 masts will protect a camp of portable buildings within a 25,000 square foot (2350 m2) area. Consult LBA Technology for specific layouts you wish to protect.
