Military Lightning Protection
Loehr Lightning Protection has worked statewide to provide safe and reliable lightning protection systems for many of Virginia's military facilities. Our crew is enrolled in the RapidGate Verification Program. Some of our clients include: Langley AFB, NAS Oceana, FBI Quantico, Norfolk Naval Weapons Station, Fort Lee, Fort Eustis, Fort Monroe and Fort Story. We provide installations in accordance with UL96A, NFPA 780 and LPI-175 Safety Standards for lightning protection systems, quality assurance inspections, project close-out documents, maintenance reviews and system evaluations on a routine basis.
Lightning protection is a specialty trade that does not fall under the expertise of most electricians or general contractors, which is why the National Fire Protection Association’s Lightning Protection Safety Standard (NFPA 780) is separate from the National Electric Code (NEC). Loehr Lightning Protection can provide grounding system testing at your facility. We also can provide Ohm Resistance Testing per U.S. Govt Standards.
Existing Lightning Protection System Inspections
Loehr Lightning Protection is your "go to" company for inspection. Time, Weather, Roof Traffic, New Rooftop Equipment and Re-Roofing can take a toll on an existing lightning protection system. We will thoroughly inspect your system and provide a written follow-up report outlining our recommendations to getting your system back up to current UL96A standards.
Maintenance of Existing Lightning Protection Systems
It is recommended by Underwriter's Laboratories that a lightning protection system be inspected every 5 years. Loehr Lightning Protection has numerous clients who utilize our maintenance program. At regular intervals, we can inspect and or test existing systems to ensure your lightning protection system is in compliance with UL96A standards. We will work with you to determine the schedule of maintenance that best suits your facility.
