If a structure under your control has a lightning protection system present, it should be maintained accordingly. HBS provide comprehensive, periodic maintenance at competitive rates, with clear reporting, images and knowledge transfer regarding your system and how it works.
Whether you are the duty holder responsible for a single site, or facilities manager of multiple sites, HBS provide fixed term contracts up to 3 years, multi-site savings, and fixed price repair agreements for certain common system defects, which may be identified during periodic maintenance visits. We also provide a reactive service in the event of a lightning strike, to carry out in-depth system inspection and integrity testing.
If a structure under your control does not have a lightning protection system present, we can help you consider the benefit and necessity of installing one.
