Marine Surge Protection

You can’t prevent a lightning strike, but you can take steps to mitigate damage due to them.

Nothing is lightning proof, but it can be lightning protected. Our marine surge protectors offer the highest level of any SPD available. Today’s marine construction technics increase the chance of a potential lightning strikes. Lightning protection systems like the ones using a conductor secured to the mast and extending above it do not prevent lightning strikes. They may in fact increase the possibility of the boat being struck. Their design is to reduce the damage to the structural integrity of the boat rather than to protect the electronics. This is where marine surge protectors added to your electrical system will help prevent damage and increase safety.
