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
