Furse Flat Tape System


The following page details the products required to install a 'Flat tape' lightning protection system. Additionally, accessories are also available.

Air rod

Manufactured from high conductivity hard drawn copper or aluminium, with rolled threads. Supplied complete with locknut.

"Field Trials in the United States, carried out over many years research have confirmed that blunt air rods are struck by lightning in preference to taper pointed air rods."

"Lightning rod improvement studies" by C B Moore, W Rison, J Mathis, G Aulich. Journal of Applied Meteorology, May 2000.

Note: during high winds and extreme weather conditions air rods over 1000mm long can be subjected to fatigue mechanisms. It is therefore recommended that additional supports are considered before installation.
