    OUR MISSION Our mission is to exceed the expectations of our customers. We aspire to the highest level of excellence in our risk mitigation evaluation, product & technology offerings, design, and systems services. We accomplish this by committing all of our resources to achieve superior customer satisfaction.

    What We Do Since 1991, ALLTEC has been a leader in applying global engineered solutions which reduce

    the risks associated with direct and indirect lightning strikes, as well as diminishing the

    hidden effects of surge events. We have focused continuously on innovating new technology,

    improving solutions, refining product quality and enhancing customer service. As Solution Providers for an Energized World we offer a comprehensive facility protection approach to solving the worlds most difficult lightning, grounding and power quality problems. ALLTEC has

    the knowledge, experience, and products to provide the optimal protection solution.



    Filling a Critical NeedThe Lightning PhenomenonLightning is an awesome and unpredictable act of nature. It causes more deaths and property damage than any other

    weather related event. In the United States alone, lightning detection systems monitor an average of 25 million flashes

    of lightning from cloud to ground every year, and lightning is reported to cause more than $2 billion damage annually.

    Fortunately, it is economically viable to protect any structure or facility from a lightning strike. A properly installed

    lightning protection system (or LPS) is over 98% effective in preventing damage associated with a lightning strike.

    Installation of an LPS is a tried and true method of protection that has been used for more than a century.

    Whatever lightning protection method is implemented, the importance of the grounding system supporting it

    cannot be overemphasized. A well designed and correctly installed, low impedance and low resistance connection,

    between earth and the LPS components is essential. An organization can most effectively approach and resolve

    the concerns of safety and power quality issues by utilizing multiple methods of protection and the complete facility

    approach employed by the solution specialists at ALLTEC.

    Transient Electrical VoltageWhile lightning-induced surges represent the most formidable transient-related equipment menace, most surges

    originate from sources located internally sources located physically within a facility. Studies have verified that

    approximately 80% of transient activity at a given facility is internally generated. Transient activity can weaken

    equipment over time and eventually lead to catastrophic equipment failure.

    The effective installation of surge protection devices can reduce the magnitude of random, high energy, short-

    duration electrical power anomalies. A multitude of devices are available for Main & Sub Panel, AC & DC,

    Medium Voltage, and Telecom & Data protection. These devices keep equipment safe during the nanoseconds

    that a disruptive transient occurs.

    Properly installed surge protection devices on all circuit conductors maximizes total site protection from the threat

    that transient surges present. Surge suppression should be one part of an overall scheme of total site protection,

    a component of a complete solution including effective grounding and lightning protection.

  • The ALLTEC Protection Pyramid provides a three-tier comprehensive facility approach for grounding/earthing & bonding, surge protection, and lightning protection solutions. The Pyramid comes as close as humanly possible to protect both man and machine from lightning and non-lightning induced transient voltage damage.

    The ALLTEC Protection Pyramid

    Why the Pyramid? Each level of the ALLTEC Protection Pyramid represents a method utilized to protect facilities from damages caused by harmful electrical

    events. Rather than treating these tiers as independent, ALLTEC regards each layer as an interlocking component. When all three tiers are

    designed, installed, and maintained as a total system, comprehensive facility protection can be achieved.

    Safeguard valuable assets, defend critical electronics, and protect businesses using the ALLTEC Protection Pyramid. The ALLTEC

    Protection Pyramid uses ALLTECs proven products and services for grounding, surge suppression, and lightning protection to provide full

    infrastructure protection.
