This year, 2021, Lightning Eliminators and Consultants Inc. (LEC Inc.) will celebrate 50 years of providing innovative lightning prevention and protection products and technology. In 1971, LEC introduced our Dissipation Array System (DAS).
Rather than attracting lightning, the DAS is a proactive lightning protection system that eliminates lightning strikes to the protected structure by utilizing charge transfer.
Since 1971, LEC has sold nearly 3,500 systems which have achieved over 77,000 system years of performance. In addition to the DAS, LEC also provides surge protectors for nearly every application and also grounding system engineering and products.
We also offer specialty products, such as the Retractable Grounding Assembly (RGA), which eliminates the risk of lightning-related ignition of petroleum storage tanks. Over 13,000 RGA’s are currently in service.
