Thor Guard is the world’s leading manufacture of lightning prediction and lightning warning systems. Since 1972, Thor Guard uses a highly sophisticated sensor and computer to measure and analyze the electrostatic field in the atmosphere. Lightning originates within this field, allowing THOR GUARD to make calculations predicting its occurrence, even though there may be no visible evidence of lightning.
Lightning “detection” systems require the occurrence of an actual lightning strike before a warning is given. Many times this is just too late. Couple Thor Guard’s prediction capability with the Voice of Thor, an interactive horn warning system, and you have a true, second to none, automatic advance warning package.
Thor Guard is the only stand-alone lightning warning device used by the LPGA, the PGA Tour, Sr. PGA Tour, Nike Tour, most USGA section and many local sections of the PGA of America. It’s the choice of Marriott Golf, The PGA Tournament Player’s Clubs, ABC Television Sports, the Mobile Weather Team and the Atlanta Summer Olympics. The flexibility of our system not only accommodates private golf facilities needing plenty of advance warning (20 or more minutes), but also public facilities looking at only 8 to 18 minutes warning to insure revenue flow. Thor Guard’s prediction capability also minimizes false alarms, a significant departure from detection systems that are prone to unnecessary and costly shutdowns.
