Today’s Lightning Protection Systems are attached to structures using one of two unappealing options. First, sheet metal screws and loops are used to mechanically fasten the system to sheet metal surfaces. This creates a penetration every 3 feet wherever the Lightning Protection System (LPS) is installed. That’s hundreds, often thousands of penetrations in water tight systems. Second, the no penetration option, is to use an adhesive system using construction mastics. Current adhesive support systems for LPS are visually unappealing, are famously unreliable for long term adhesion, and cant be used on vertical surfaces. These systems use 1900’s technology to attach to today’s modern structures.
