Solution No 1:

SOLUTIONS FOR THE HOMEOWNER:We assist the Homeowner with the following service:
  • Lightning and Surge protection on televisions, DSTV systems, gate motors, borehole pumps, electric fences, distribution boxes, home offices, fridges, swimming pool pump, alarm systems.
  • Lightning conductors for thatched roof and lapas.
  • Earthing and bonding rectifications and new installations.
  • Insurance claims for lightning damage and/or bent lightning conductors.
A property is first evaluated by testing the earth resistance on the main electrical earth, water pipes, gutters, roofs, gate motors, ect. To ensure that these areas are all bonded and on the same potential. A sustainable environment should be created or in place to ensure that all lightning protection products can operate effectively and for the purpose they were created. Should an area not comply, we will recommend that it be rectified first before installation of protection products can take place. We supply the customer with a full report, estimate and sketch plan (where applicable) an assessment. Once the test results comply with standards we issue a SABS 0313:1999 certificate of compliance on the total Lightning Protection System.
 

Solution No 2:

SOLUTION FOR COMMERCIAL AND INDUSTRIAL COMPANIES:EARTH TECH offers specific services to the Commercial and Industrial companies in the following manner:
  • Lightning and Surge protection on computer systems, network systems DSTV systems, gate motors, borehole pumps, electric fences, distribution boxes, aircon systems, fridges, CCTV cameras, alarm systems.
  • Lightning conductors for thatched roof and lapas.
  • Earthing and bonding rectifications and new installations.
  • Insurance claims for lightning damage and/or bent lightning conductors.
  • Earth resistance measurements of property with SABS0313:1999 certificate of compliance when results comply with standards.
  • Soil resistivity measurements for earthing installations and rectifications.
For the commercial and industrial customers we evaluate the property in accordance to SABS 0313:1999, SABS 0199 and SABS 0142 (Surge protective devices only). We check the following items:
  • Earthing and bonding on the property should be in accordance with standards to ensure that the correct working environment is created for lightning protection devices to operate effectively, and so that no inductance differences can take place between conductive areas.
  • Surge protective devices for the main distribution boxes as well as other distribution boxes indicated by customer.
  • Lightning protection on roof (aluminum strapping) when requested or deemed necessary.
  • Specific lightning and surge protection on computer systems, network systems, DSTV systems, gate motors, borehole pumps, electric fences, aircon systems, fridges, CCTV cameras, ect when requested.
Once the property has been evaluated we will supply customer with full report on the findings, an estimate with the costs. We will also issue a SABS 0313:1999 certificate when all earthing and bonding results comply with standards.
