Lightning Arrester Spike

EATHWAY TECHNOLOGIES LLP Solid Copper Bonded Lightning Arrester Spike Are manufactured In Different Dimensions With An Average Copper Coating Of 80 – 100 Microns For Lightning Protection Application.


EARTHWAY TECHNOLOGIES LLP Lightning Arrester Spike provides lightning safety to protect tall or isolated buildings; this conventional lightning arrester is installed at the rooftop of the building or mast of a vessel which then protects your building from lighting. Conventional-type lightning arresters are special grounding systems designed to safely conduct the extremely high voltage currents associated with lightning strikes. This Lightning Arrester Spike is durable, latest in design and is used for arresting lightning to protect against fire breakouts and leakage of current through electric circuits. The offered arrester is made from high-grade materials to ensure the industry standards.

Key Information about Lightning Arrester Spike:


The primary function of a lightning arrester is to divert the high-voltage lightning strike away from the protected equipment.

It prevents damage to electrical systems by providing a low-resistance path for the lightning current to reach the ground.


Lightning arresters are typically composed of a metal rod or conductor, which acts as a lightning rod, and a grounding system.

The lightning rod is often mounted on top of structures or equipment to attract and capture the lightning strike.

Types of Lightning Arresters:

Rod or Franklin Rod:

Developed by Benjamin Franklin, it consists of a pointed metal rod that extends above the protected structure.

When a lightning strike occurs, the rod provides a path for the lightning to follow, directing it safely to the ground.

Surge Arresters:

Used in electrical power systems, telecommunications, and electronic devices.

These are designed to protect against overvoltage or surges caused by lightning, switching operations, or other factors.

Metal Oxide Varistor (MOV):

Commonly used in modern surge arresters.

MOVs are semiconductor devices that have a variable resistance, providing high resistance under normal conditions and low resistance during a surge.


Lightning arresters are strategically placed on structures, power lines, or equipment that requires protection.

Proper grounding is crucial for the effective operation of the lightning arrester.


Periodic inspections are necessary to ensure the lightning arrester and its associated grounding system are in good condition.

Damaged or corroded components should be repaired or replaced promptly.

National and International Standards:

Lightning protection standards, such as those provided by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), provide guidelines for the design and installation of lightning protection systems.

Lightning arrester spike play a crucial role in safeguarding infrastructure and electronic equipment from the destructive effects of lightning strikes. Proper design, installation, and maintenance are essential for their effectiveness.
