Over the last 40 years, Dominion Lightning Rod Co. Ltd. has specialized in the application of Lightning Protection Systems to Telecommunications Systems throughout Canada, including the CN Tower.

Working with the telecommunication engineering, procurement, civil and construction groups for all the major mobile (cellular) telecom suppliers we have successfully applied and integrated the LPS with the telecom equipment/systems to provide maximum protection.
