Canton, NC (PRWEB) February 25, 2009
Alltec Corporation's newly launched Alltec Protection Pyramid provides a three-step comprehensive facility protection approach for grounding solutions, surge suppression and lightning protection. The system begins with the installation of a code compliant, single-point, low impedance/low resistivity grounding system, sized to carry the full amplitude of a short circuit current safely to the ground. Next, surge protection devices are staged to dramatically filter the voltage, current, and frequency surges. Lastly, a well designed lightning protection system is created to protect against direct lightning strikes.
Grounding Systems. The three-step Alltec Protection Pyramid begins with the installation of a stable, low resistance and low impedance grounding system to bond all electrically conductive surfaces together. Finally, redirect lightning energy safely to earth and away from power, telephone lines or data equipment with the following products: TerraDyne® Electrolytic Grounding System, TerraFill® Ground Enhancement Material, TerraBar® Bus Bar Series, TerraWeld® Exothermic Welding System.
Surge Suppression. The second stage of protection comes from properly installed surge protection devices or SPD system, which reduces the magnitude of random, high energy, short duration electrical power anomalies. These occurrences are typically caused by atmospheric phenomena (such as lightning strikes), utility switching, inductive loads, and more internally generated transient voltages. In response to this demand, Alltec offers:PowerTrip® line of Surge Suppression Products.
Lightning Protection. Finally, a well-designed customized lightning protection system will be installed to safeguard facilities from direct lightning strikes. Traditional lightning protection methods as well as some of the most advanced technologies are available at Alltec Corporation: TerraStat® Charge Dissipation Terminals and TerraStreamer® Early Streamer Emission Terminals.
