    Why system importance is important

    Systems inspections, audits and maintenance

    Australian Construction designs all our LPS (lightning protection systems) to capture the lightning, providing a safe, effective path to earth in case of a lightning event. We aim to establish a safe conductive path, avoiding damage to the equipment at your facility. We also include suitable surge protection. We implement various industry-leading techniques, equipment and technology for your facility’s lightning protection. Our expert team incorporates the following into our systems: 

    • Surge protectors
    • Earthing equipment
    • Lightning conductors
    • Power conditioners
    • Lightning protection systems for direct strike situations
    • Uninterrupted power supply equipment
    • Lightning protectors

    When you install our equipment and systems, you benefit from:

    • Enhanced safety for personnel
    • No facility service downtime
    • Reduced complaints from your clients.
    • A licensed system complying with all the suitable standards and regulations
    • A decrease in expensive repairs

    Our work is to ensure that your facility equipment continues operating during thunderstorms with a continuous, uninterrupted power supply. But, if you do not maintain your system, all this goes to waste. Australian Construction provides a full preventative maintenance system of all the above, beginning with a yearly inspection of your system.

    After the inspection, we issue a report that details any problems that need to be addressed to enable us to certify the system. If our team does not notice any issues, we will certify and include them in our report. Unlike most of our competitors who give you one sheet with tick boxes, we provide a comprehensive report! When you use our lightning protection contractor to inspect your system, it assures you of an extremely efficient summary of your system’s condition.


    Remember that all Australian Construction avails all the above with a comprehensive, superior quality report giving details of any issues your system might be experiencing. It includes test outcomes of the system continuity, earth system, etc. It is also inclusive of a duplicate of the preset calibration certificate of all the test equipment we used.
