What is this published document about?

It supplements BS EN 62305-2 by supplying revised and improved flash density maps of the UK. These will help users better evaluate the risk of a structure or service being struck by lightning.

Who is this published document for?

Anyone responsible for assessing the risk to structures or services from lightning in the UK.

Why should you use this published document? 

It is an updated supplement to BS EN 62305-2 which provides a procedure for assessing the risk to a structure or service from lightning flashes to earth. 

PD 62305-2 contains improved lightning flash density maps to the one currently available in BS EN 62305-2. The strong recommendation is that this document is now used in conjunction with that standard.

What’s changed since the last update?

The strike data has been grouped into lightning flashes as per the internationally accepted criteria. Flash density has been calculated using a resolution of 10 km2, representing a significant improvement on the previously published flash density map in BS EN 62305-2:2012.
