Tower and Antenna Grounding Since lightning is attracted to the highest object in view, towers and antennas are natural targets in lightning's path from a storm to the ground, or that having an effective grounding system is essential at preventing serious equipment damage or harm to people. Proper grounding not only protects towers from direct strikes but helps to shield high and low frequency signals and wiring that can be impaired by static and electrical fields that occur in wide area thunderstorms.

Based on input from the National Association of Tower Erectors (NATE) , Storm introduces UL-listed 6" solid cold-drawn copper ground bars as a better means to divert maximum current associated with lightning strikes common to communication towers and antenna installations.
Mounting kits are available with the 6” grounding bars, each includes a solid copper ground bar with 2 - UL recognized standoff insulators; 2 - stainless mounting brackets; 4 - stainless 5/8 – 1 x 1 hex bolts and spring-lock washers. Kits for larger sizes include additional components proportionate to length.
