Determine installation compliance through an early streamer emissions system evaluation

When a traditional Franklin-based LPS is impractical, an ESE LPS installation may be an option. An ESE installation may enhance LPS protection for some building configurations, industrial sites, monuments or other architecturally unique structures. Each year thousands of ESE systems are installed on structures in the United States. An independent third-party inspection by UL Solutions helps in determining installation compliance with standards and requirements, while providing protection and peace of mind for architects, building owners, insurance agencies, code officials, general contractors and LPS installers.

We offer an Engineering Inspection Report for ESE systems installed in the United States using UL certified Early Streamer Emission Air Terminals (ESEAT). This LPS inspection service evaluates installations in compliance with original equipment manufacturers (OEM) specifications for ESE systems. The Engineering Inspection Report includes detailed results that UL Listed LPS Installers may share with applicable stakeholders.

Benefits of an ESE evaluation

Minimize risk of significant property damage caused by lightning strikes to:

  • Reduce downtime and loss of business from lightning damage
  • Confirm that LPS installations comply with installation requirements
  • Leverage UL Solutions’ LPS evaluation experience
