Lightning protection for thatched roofs

Lightning and surge protection company DEHN Africa recently presented its high-voltage-resistant insulated (HVI) lightning protection system for thatched roofs in the picturesque location of the Pilanesberg National Park in the North West Province. Hano Oelofse, the company’s managing director says the old 30-metre free-standing masts for external lightning protection are very visible, and create something of an intrusion in the landscape.

In contrast, the HVI lightning protection system is compact and neat, and is installed onto the top of the roof itself. Oelofse added that, given the technical expertise offered by the HVI technology, and the company’s confidence in its product, the company is now prepared to offer insurance guarantees linked to its HVI system through the launch of DEHNinsure for thatched roofs, powered by HVI and providing a three-in-one offering of product and public liability, professional indemnity, and electronic equipment insurance.
