Lightning Protection Systems

Northern Lightning Protection LLC is a professional, full service lightning protection contractor based out of Camden, Maine. We install residential, commercial, and industrial UL Master Label Lightning Protection Systems throughout New England and New York.

Protection from Strikes and Surges

Northern Lightning Protection specializes in installing UL Master Label Lightning Protection Systems for residential, commercial, and industrial buildings and structures.

The goal of our company is to satisfy our customers by delivering professional and high value work. Our UL Master Label Lightning Protection Systems are successfully installed on structures as diverse as coastal residential estates to interstate highway toll booths and Open Road Tolling space frames.

We install only top quality and certified Harger lightning protection and grounding products, and top-of-the-line Square D and Leviton Class III surge protection devices.

We use our own bucket trucks and aerial lifts to professionally install your UL Master Label Lightning Protection System. We work with professional, fully insured excavation, landscape, and paving contractors to provide “turn-key” quotes and installations.

Services for you

Northern Lightning Protection is a Harger factory trained installation contractor of Underwriter Laboratories Master Label Lightning Protection Systems (LPS).

We install Square D and Leviton Class III surge protection devises to help protect your sensitive electronic equipment from grid surges, brown-outs, and lightning strikes.

Site inspection

We'll visit your site, or inspect your full set of plans, to create a labor and materials price for your lightning protection project. Once a project scope and price is agreed upon by the customer, we will send your plans to our Harger lightning protection engineers in Chicago. They will draw a full set of engineered lightning protection plans for our installers to use on your installation. Upon completion of installation, a UL inspector will visit the jobsite to inspect and certify our LPS installation.

Types of lightning protection systems

We install internal and external lightning protection conductors as well as copper and aluminum conductors. The techniques and materials vary depending on the structure type and composition. In the end, you will receive a UL Master Label for Lightning Protection, recognized by insurance companies.

Surge protection

A vital part of your UL Master Label Lightning Protection System are Surge Protection Devices (SPDs) installed at the service entrance and at the circuit breaker panels. SPDs help protect your sensitive electronic equipment from grid surges, brown-outs, and lightning strikes.

Project budgeting

We can create a budget for your lightning protection project without engineered lightning plans. We just need thorough pictures and dimensions of an existing structure or a full set of plans for a new structure. Once a budget and scope are agreed upon, then we'll submit your structure for engineering and order materials.

Insurance and safety benefits

Not only do our lightning protection systems and surge protection devices protect your structure and electronic equipment, but they are recognized by insurance companies. This helps you save on a variety of types of insurance - homeowners, business, personal possesion, and high value equipment insurance among them. Check with your insurance company to find out how much a UL Master Label Lightning Protection System could save you!
