Lightning protection of historical buildings is crucial in all aspects. Many important pieces of art have been damaged by fire which was caused by lightning. These types of buildings are often the highest points of their environment and are usually built with metallic material, stone and even flammable materials.
In addition, many historic buildings have electronic equipment, such as security cameras, audiovisual media, etc., and receive a large number of visitors generating large concentrations of people, regularly or at specific times.
Therefore, it is key to take preventive measures using methods such as storm detection, external protection and internal protection, such as surge protectors.
