We want to keep you informed about all the news related to Lightning Protection Systems (lightning rods, overvoltage protection and thunderstorm detectors) standard’s updates, specific training and workshops held at Aplicaciones Tecnológicas, as well as any application and download we develop in our company.
Summer period is traditionally the season where good weather and holidays are most enjoyed, but it is also the time of year where more cumulonimbus convective clouds are formed which produce lightnings.
Accidents caused by lightning strikes in hotel complexes or tourist resorts can be prevented by the storm detector system ATSTORM®.
Thunderstorm formation can’t be avoided but it’s possible to anticipate tens of minutes before to the event of a lightning strike in an area of interest. This anticipation allows us to minimize risks and avoid accidents setting in motion temporary preventive actions.
After the fire of Notre Dame cathedral in April 2019, the need to protect landmark buildings from fires has been highlighted. The causes of these fires are usually human failure or faulty electrical installations, but landmark buildings have also been destroyed by fires caused by a lightning strike.
Aplicaciones Tecnológicas, specialized in lightning protection systems, organizes free online webinars on two products: the exothermic welding system Apliweld® Secure+ in tablet format with remote electronic ignition and the lightning early warning system ATSTORM®.
Aplicaciones Tecnológicas increases safety in theme parks by means of protection and prevention systems to minimize risks produced by lightning strikes. Dreamland Margate Theme Park located in Kent (England) is one of the last sites which has been protected by the company, where Aplicaciones Tecnológicas has provided the lightning protection system and the preventive system ATSTORM®, a local thunderstorm detector.
In every construction project it is essential to consider lightning protection in order to comply with standards. Aplicaciones Tecnológicas offers a complete service of lightning protection study which includes the necessary technical documents, calculations and plans to offer the appropriate project according to the needs and standards.
In Aplicaciones Tecnológicas we offer lightning protection systems as well as local early warning for lightning storm risk prevention. Electrical storms are unavoidable natural events, but an early detection can allow users to carry out preventive actions which complement with lightning protection.
The extreme weather conditions and the structures and buildings in such a city as Dubai makes lighting protection a technical challenge which needs expert solutions and high-performance materials. The Early Streamer Emission (ESE) lightning rod Dat Controller Plus has been chosen to protect three symbolic projects in United Arab Emirates.
Aplicaciones Tecnológicas, specialized in lightning protection systems, organizes free online webinars aimed at professionals. Registration is free and there is limited space, so sign up as soon as possible and learn everything about ATSTORM®, the thunderstorm detection system for labour risk prevention, and Apliweld® Secure+, an exothermic welding system in tablet format with remote electronic ignition.
BIM modeling of our products will facilitate the installation design for external lightning protection for professionals from the start of every constructive project.
