About Corrigan Lightning Rods
What is Lightning?
Lightning is the phenomenon which accompanies the discharge of atmospheric charges from cloud to cloud or from cloud to earth. As lightning seeks the path of least resistance, it naturally tends to follow the shortest course between cloud and earth such as buildings or towering projections. Positive electric charges gather in the clouds and negative charges gather in the ground. When the attraction between these two charges are strong enough they come together in the form of lightning. Lightning rod equipment, properly manufactured and installed, dissipates these charges.

With a "MODERN" system of lightning rods, properly installed on your buildings, we provide an easy pathway for the earth charge to travel to the top of the building. As this electrical force reaches the top of the lightning rod system, it travels along the conductor system and up each of the air terminals. These upward surges or charges are then dissipated into the surrounding air and then neutralized by the cloud charge at a safe distance above the building. It is through the function of our lightning rod system, that we provide a continuous and safe metal pathway, to and from the earth for the flow of the electric charges during electrical storm periods.
