All of the LPP directors are LP professionals themselves, some of us are also members of the SANS 10313 Working Group at the SABS.

This gives our association a voice and some influence, as to what is written into SANS 10313 – making it fair towards the public as well as toward LP contractors.

Get to know us


LPP website is part of the LP Contractor’s broader Training and Marketing toolbox. We aim to provide readily available access and knowledge that a basic installer needs to know as an absolute minimum.

The LPP website is your new starting point to become a knowledgeable LP Contractor, and if you are sure you have the knowledge – it’s a place where you can share your knowledge and experience with your peers on the other side of the country where the person or company you are helping, is not your direct opposition. We do not condone personal opinion based solutions that do not work and do not conform to the set standards. Instead, we equip LP contractors to the preferred alternative – standards-based solutions.

LPP is made up of other LP contractors like yourself – normal people, doing extraordinary and amazing work, saving people, saving property. We all talk the same technical language. Join us.



LPP as an association was born from the need to have LP Contractors given a united front, from where the consumer, the developer, the building contractor, the engineering sector, as well as the insurance market, can source a reputable, knowledgeable, well informed and universally coherent Lightning Protection Specialist.

For too long, untrained and uninformed so-called lightning contractors quoted and delivered LP related services, which the public and end-user saw only as opinion based smoke and mirrors. We owe it to the consumer, to give them real solutions. Universally understood and interpreted internationally accepted standards-based solutions that really work – no questions asked. Here we are.
