The installation of a lightning protection system on the roof, generally requires the lightning conductor tape to be run across and secured to, the primary waterproofing membrane.


To ensure that Sarnafil roofing systems accommodate the designers requirements for the provision of lightning protection, Sika Limited can provide the Sarnafil G/S and Sarnafil TCG/TCS lightning protection clips. Installed by a Sarnafil Roofing Contractor or Sarnafil trained and registered FURSE lightning protection installer and subject to the agreement of the Sarnafil Roofing Contractor (who has contractual responsibility for the roof), the Sarnafil lightning protection clips are simply hot air welded directly to the Sarnafil membrane.


The alternative method of attaching lightning conductor clips to Sarnafil membranes is illustrated alongside. This is the traditional method employed for this application and requires a sacrificial layer of membrane to protect the membrane in the event of a lightning strike. Welding the lightning conductor retaining ‘tag’ directly to the waterproofing membrane is not acceptable.

PVC Lightning Conductor Clips

The Sarnafil Lightning Conductor Clips are manufactured from high performance polypropylene, UV stabilized against degradation by sunlight and non-brittle to prevent cold weather damage. The clip allows for the attachment of various lightning conductor tapes to the Sarnafil G/S roof system. The 90mm diameter base is available in P-PVC for Sarnafil G/S membranes. The retaining clip is attached to the circular base with a stainless steel nut & bolt. The retaining clip and base come complete as one unit. Available for non-coated lightning conductor tape or P- PVC coated lightning conductor tapes.
