At Harcon Services, we test and inspect sites across the UK. We do this for small independent companies with small lightning protection systems consisting of one or two earth points, through to national multiples with many sites around the country with large structures consisting of dozens of earth points. We can also combine lightning inspections with height safety system (mansafe) inspections to save you money and reduce site visits.
We work from a central CRM system using tablets and hand-helds, as such our field engineers are able to feedback on inspection results quickly and we are able to issue reports and certificates in a swift manner.
Some of our work can be seen on our case studies page here.
We also work for and on behalf of facility management companies. We are very experienced at this and can tailor our service to suit you, working to your standards.
