Preventing Loss & Tragedies

Vickery Electric’s First Lightning Rod System installation was back in 1982, on a Church in Oshawa Ontario. John TG Vickery recalls ‘because I was the one who had to install the Copper Air Terminal on the Top of the Steeple, it was a long way up!”.

A proper grounding system is a crucial aspect to any electrical installation. Any swell experienced by an electrical system is a product of faults on adjacent phases, and a properly installed and maintained grounding system can all but eliminate the issues these over voltages can cause.  All Vickery Electric employees are required to be certified in Lightning Rod and Grounding Installations through the Ontario Fire Marshall.

Vickery Electric Contracting installs Heary Bros Lightning Rod Systems. Heary Bros (a four generation company) provides independent engineering and manufacturing. Vickery Electric (a four generation company) provides quality installations including Ontario Fire Marshall Certification of each project.

Vickery Electric grounding projects include Cad Weld and Bonding of Transformer Substations, Electrical Services, Pad Mount Transformers, and Traffic Control Systems.

Vickery Electric is fully capable to perform all resistance and insulation testing, including resistivity and hi-pot.

Recent installations include Royal Ashburn Golf Club (Home of the Canadian Professional Golf Associations Qualifying School) and one of Canada’s most prestigious Golf Courses.
