OBVT lightning rods are designed for external lightning protection. They can be employed as a single sensor element or as part of passive protection, complementing the protective conductive mesh (Faraday cages). These lightning rods are constructed from 304 stainless steel.


  • Simplicity.
  • Cost-effectiveness.
  • Easy installation.


  • The tip of the lightning rod should be positioned at least two meters above the tallest building to be protected.
  • When installing it on a mast, you’ll need the corresponding head-mast adapter for the lightning rod.
  • Cabling on roofs should be shielded to protect against surges and should connect to the ground any metallic structures within the safety zone.
  • The lightning rod should be connected to a grounding point using one or more conductive cables, ideally running down the exterior of the structure via the shortest and straightest path possible.
  • The earth termination systems, with a resistance ideally less than 10 ohms, should ensure the quickest possible dispersal of the lightning current discharge.
