Components for Buildings with Thatched Roof
Intended span width for ridge conductors is approx. 15 m and for down conductors approx. 10 m without additional supports. Span stakes have to be fastened at the roof construction (rafters and crosspieces) by anchor bolts and flat washers.
Today often a high-voltage-resistant insulated (HVI) lightning protection system is the preferred external protection system to be installed on buildings with thatched roof.
