As an equipment manufacturer, it is our policy to sell products exclusively to lightning protection installation firms that are listed to perform this work with Underwriters Laboratories and are members of the Lightning Protection Institute. Our representatives are typically firms that specialize in both lightning protection system design and installation. If you want to purchase lightning protection products, call us and we can either help you to find a representative in your area to assist you, or we can help you join our network of representatives.
We know how important it is for you to have your materials quickly. We are committed to shipping your orders the very same day that we receive them. Whenever you place an order, it is our policy to call you immediately if any of your materials will not ship the same day or will be backordered. We make every effort not to backorder materials. Our skilled staff and wide variety of metalworking machinery enable us to provide you with fast service and quality products. Our on-site foundry gives us enormous flexibility. Not only does it allow us to develop and produce custom items, but it also gives us the ability to turn your orders around quickly. It is not unusual for us to ship finished items on the same day they were cast in the foundry. When you are in a hurry, we can work with you to meet your needs.
WE WORK FOR YOU
We want you to think of ECLE as the manufacturer that works for you. We are a full-service manufacturer with the ability to meet all of your lightning protection component needs. We have made our mark in the lightning protection industry by providing quality parts, competitive pricing, and unparalleled customer service.
CUSTOM WORK IS OUR SPECIALTY
Valuable installation time should not be wasted in on-site modifications of standardized equipment. Whenever you need a special item or custom part, we can help you. We stand ready to turn your specifications into equipment that will make the job easier. Custom items are one of our specialities. Call us with the special application and we will work with you to find a solution.
Thoughtful design, continuous product testing, and stringent quality control procedures allow us to provide you with quality products at a reasonable price. All products listed in our catalog are guaranteed against defects in materials or workmanship for one year. If you receive an item that you are not completely satisfied with, we will replace it, refund your money, or credit your account. We are proud of the quality products we produce. If you are not satisfied with one of our products, we want to know about it.
WE CAN MAKE MODIFICATIONS
The fittings described in our catalog are in their standard form. Alternate sizes of anchor holes or different length cap screws are examples of just some of the modifications that can be made to accommodate your installation preferences. When you have ideas about modifying an existing part to make it better, we want to hear about it. It is by listening to the ideas of the people who work with our products in the field every day that we are able to consistently grow and improve our product line.
DESIGN TOOLS AND ASSISTANCE
Our skilled staff stands ready to provide the answers you need whenever you have questions on system design or applications. Interpreting the national lightning protection standards is one of our specialties. Our staff is involved with the development and review of the nationally recognized standards for lightning protection maintained by Underwriters Laboratories, Lightning Protection Institute, and National Fire Protection Association. Please note that our catalog is also available in AutoCAD and PDF formats for incorporation into your computer design system.
Our staff will find the method of shipment that is least expensive and most convenient for you. Orders can be shipped by any means you specify. We have negotiated deep discounts with a number of over-the-road trucking firms, in addition to United Parcel Service (UPS). Whatever the shipping method, all orders are tracked for you—from our door to yours.
There is much more to being an ECLE customer than having a great place to purchase materials. In addition to our daily commitment to providing competitive prices, quality products and speedy service, ECLE strives to be its customers best resource for information relevant to running a successful lightning protection company. Through newsletters, mailings, telephone conversations and regular industry meetings, we make sure that news and ideas relevant to your business are always at your fingertips. We monitor national and international standards development and pass along information about new trends as soon as we get it. When questions arise about lightning protection, it is important to remember that ECLE is the leading resource for quality products and accurate, up-to-date information.
IF THERE IS A PROBLEM
If you find a shipping error, please report it promptly for settlement. We take pride in our packaging methods. If a delivery ever arrives short or is damaged, it is important for you to make sure that the transporter notes the problem or damage directly on their delivery receipt. Claims for shortage or damage occurring during transit must be filed directly with the transporter, as they are not the responsibility of ECLE.
Joining Our Network
In certain regions, we are actively seeking additional qualified, dedicated firms to represent our products. If you are a contracting firm that is listed with Underwriters Laboratories for lightning protection, a member of the Lightning Protection Institute, or interested in becoming one, please feel free to contact us.
