Why You Should Attend

Knowing you have a compliant Lightning Protection design to the various international standards should be enough, right? But did you know that there are a number of assumptions used in the standards that could leave you exposed?

Webinar Outcomes

After watching this webinar you will learn how incredibly easy it is to use XGSLab software to model your lightning protection design and subject it to a simulated lightning strike to confirm the assumptions, and KNOW how it actually performs in reality.

The key takeaway from this webinar is that you may think meeting the basic compliance requirements of the standards is enough, but by understanding the safety assumptions and using the modelling techniques shown, you can gain the peace of mind to remove assumption out of your design and take your work to the next level.

Who should attend?

This webinar is right for you if you are…

  • Responsible for delivering lightning protection system design
  • Responsible for a budget and who organises and leads a design/project team
  • Responsible for subcontracting lightning protection design and/or installations

Do you need to be a technical person to attend?

You don’t need to be a specialist. This is a 40-minute awareness piece that dives quite quickly into some technical concepts, so, a reasonable level of underpinning knowledge is assumed.
