Lightning Protection: A Life Story

ATLAS has recently featured an article on ‘Lightning Protection: A Life Story’ in Tomorrow’s Facilities Management magazine. The piece takes you back to the creation of the first ever lightning protection system and how it came about, and how it has adapted to suit the needs of buildings and structures today. We would like to thank Marc Pilkington of Furse (ABB) and member of the Lightning Protection Committee for writing the piece. ATLAS has created its own branded version which can be found in the Information section of our website.
