With agriculture and manufacturing being the driving forces of Wisconsin’s economy, more and more companies and farmers are choosing to install lightning protection systems to protect their product, workers and livestock. In 2014 alone, 6 people were injured by lightning strikes.
Driving throughout the Wisconsin countryside, many older farm houses, barns and silos have outdated lightning protection systems that should be brought up to current lightning protection standards. By doing this, you are affording the most current protection from lightning to protect your property, you, the lives of others and your livestock.
