Paxson Lightning Rods Inc. can help prevent lightning-related business interruptions to schools, factories, churches, hotels, golf and country clubs, medical buildings, and transportation centers.

Trained Professionals Protecting Your Buildings

Lightning protection is not a do-it-yourself project; it is a specialty discipline. To ensure that your lightning protection is installed in accordance with national safety standards, it is important to hire an experienced contractor listed with Underwriters Laboratories.

An improperly installed lightning protection system can be more dangerous than no system at all. Trained, experienced specialists should install lightning protection systems, not unqualified roofers, general contractors, or electricians.
