Santa Monica Lightning Evaluations
Lightning flashes make a beautiful backdrop for the Santa Monica Pier. But high current lightning channels can be disastrous when they strike.
Engineering Specialists Inc (ESI) has qualified engineers and Certified Fire & Explosion Investigators to verify the extent of lightning damage.
Lightning damage insurance claims total 1 billion each year. Lightning strikes can damage electronics, HVAC equipment, computers and electrical systems through powerful surges. The aftereffects can range from disabled equipment to a total fire loss.
Direct conduction into outlets and circuits causes burnouts of the equipment, resulting in immediately visible damage. Electromagnetic fields can cause indirect damage more than a half mile away from the lightning strike. ESI's engineers provide on-site analysis of both direct and indirect lightning damage.
ESI provides lightning damage assessment for:
- Communication Towers
- HVAC Units
- Electrical Circuit Panels
- Plumbing and Gas Lines
- Electronic Equipment
- Commercial and Residential Buildings
- Boats, Cars, RVs
- Commercial Cargo and Passenger Transportation
