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.
The lightning protection system from Aplicaciones Tecnológicas protects the Nossa Senhora de Aires Pilgrimage Sanctuary, located in Viana do Alentejo, Portugal, is an 18th century building designed by architect P. João Baptista.
In residential sector and in small tertiary business, it is recommended to protect correctly the installations against both permanent and transient overvoltages. Usually, in such cases (houses, business, worshops, restaurants, etc), are limited by a lack of space. The most appropriate solution is to use permanent and transient overvoltage protectors in the same device.
In Aplicaciones Tecnológicas we are adapting our data protection policy and the way we send emails to the new European legislation. This action is an indissoluble part of our commitment to the security and digital privacy of our users.
The exothermic welding system of Aplicaciones Tecnológicas APLIWELD SECURE + now has a new ignition device that includes a controller with Bluetooth connection for a wireless ignition which improves the performance.
Lightning rods with the most advanced technology from Aplicaciones Tecnológicas, DAT CONTROLER® REMOTE, protect Malacky Castle in Slovakia, as well as part of the Zamocky Park, the classicist style English park that surrounds this 17th century fortress.
Aplicaciones Tecnológicas has developed, together with the Municipality of Cascais, located west of Lisbon in Portugal, a lightning protection study for the installation of lightning rods in its public schools.
Lightning rods are an essential part of the external lightning protection system, which main objective is to intercept the lightning bolt and drive it safely to the ground. The external system of protection against lightning is also part of the permanent measures of prevention and protection against lightning, according to the NTP 1084 for prevention of occupational hazards caused by lightning strikes.
Aplicaciones Tecnológicas, since it was founded, has maintained as a fundamental value the development of quality products for protection against lightning, that are responsible with the environment. For this reason, it has once again renewed its certificate of Environmental Management System, based on the UNE-EN ISO 14001: 2015 standard.
Lightning is a phenomenon that, despite being very common, is little known outside the specialized forums and creates uncertainty. It is important for people’s safety and to safeguard the equipment, that some key points are taken into account on what not to do in case of a storm:
