Conventional Lightning Arrester


Lightning Spike Arrestor

To protect a home or building in the event of lightning a metal conductor or rod is mounted on the top of the building and electrically connected to the earth through a wire is known as conventional lightning rod (lightning conductor) or spike arrester. If lightning strikes it will preferentially strike the spike arrester, and be conducted harmlessly to ground through the wire, instead of passing through the building, where it could start a fire or cause electrocution.

A Spike Lightning Protection Rod is a single component in a spike lightning protection system. In addition to rods placed at regular intervals on the highest portions of a structure, a conventional type lightning protection typically includes a rooftop network of conductors, multiple conductive paths from the roof to the ground, bonding connections to metallic objects within the structure and a grounding network.

The rooftop lightning spike rod is a metal strip or rod, usually of copper or aluminum. Lightning Spike protection systems are installed on structures, trees, monuments, bridges or water vessels to protect from lightning damage. Individual lightning rods are sometimes called finials, air terminals or strike termination devices.
