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.
Our Quality Management System has been certificated according to ISO 9001 for 17 years now. This certification has recently been renewed after being audited, as every year, by AENOR.
Aplicaciones Tecnológicas, S.A. and its workers have launched a solidarity campaign to collect toys to be delivered at the City Hall of Paterna, where the company has its headquarters. The toys, books and even video games that are being collected will certainly bring joy to less fortunate children during this upcoming holiday season.
Standards assert that the good condition of a lightning protection system should be ensured over time. Therefore the standard UNE 21.186:2011 establishes, depending on the protection level of the installation, different periodicities for visual and complete inspection.
Several key factors should be considered when exothermic (also called aluminothermic) welding is employed, in order to make the best use of the resources invested in the purchase of material and to improve the work in site.
From the 26th to the 30th of October, several meetings were hold in Athens (Greece) of the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) groups that are in charge of re-viewing the 4 parts of the lightning protection standard IEC 62305 (General principles, Risk management, Physical damage to structures and life hazard, Electrical and electronic systems within structures).
Aplicaciones Tecnológicas has attended the XIII International Symposium on Lightning Protection (SIPDA) 2015, held in Balneário Camboriú (Brazil) between the 28th September and the 2nd October.
During its formation lightning moves in any direction, but only until it finds a way to ground: then the path for the discharge is already created. High buildings are therefore preferred points for lightning strikes, so that risk assessment standards consider, for calculating the equivalent collection area of a structure, a surface of 3 times its height around. Besides, according to these standards, for buildings higher than 60 meters lateral impacts should also be considered.
Offering the right product for different industrial sectors, achieving that such product is suitable for the chosen lightning protection solution, is more complex than it first appears, since key factors for the safety of persons, services and goods are involved.
