About Us

Based in Worthing, West Sussex and with over 30 years’ experience in the lightning protection industry, Altitude lightning protection was founded by myself, Sean Rich, offering competitive rates for lightning protection system testing, maintenance & installations using the best quality materials and installed to the highest standard.

I started work as a steeplejack and continued for several years prior to specialising in lightning protection.  I then spent over 15 years as an engineer installing new systems to buildings and structures of all types and sizes, as well as testing existing systems and carrying out repairs as required, in compliance with BS EN 62305, BS EN 6651 and BS CP 326. passing my NVQ2/NVQ3 Lightning Protection Engineer qualification and qualifying as a Site Supervisor, SSSTS.

I then progressed in to the role of contracts manager and passed my SMSTS qualification, managing engineers on site: monitoring and advising on health and safety, checking the quality of work, ensuring that standards were maintained and surpassed, and dealing directly with clients enquiries or concerns and delivering contracts on schedule.
