When designing a structural lightning protection system using the Faraday Cage principle, it is possible to use one or more of a variety of available conductor systems; namely tape conductor, circular conductor or stranded conductor.

The decision about which type to use is often based more on country-specific historical preferences or aesthetic considerations than the superiority of one type over another. High quality Kumwell conductors, plus appropriate fittings, are available for all three systems.
Tape Conductors
Tape conductors are easy to install, with no need to straighten for a neat finish. Available in copper or aluminium, tape conductor can be installed bare or with a choice of PVC coverings, to enable the tape to blend with modern building fabrics. Tinned copper tape is also available for applications that require additional protection measures.
Circular Conductors
Circular conductors can be used in applications where aesthetic considerations are important. Circular conductor is less conspicuous than the tape conductor system, and lends itself much better to being concealed. Available in copper or aluminium, circular conductors can also have PVC coverings.
