Plinth protection refers to the measures taken to protect the base or lower portion of a structure, such as a building, monument, or statue. This can involve using materials such as stone, concrete, or metal to provide a sturdy foundation and prevent damage from environmental factors such as water, wind, or temperature changes.
Plinth protection may also include measures to prevent vandalism or accidental damage, such as the use of fences, railings, or security cameras. In some cases, plinth protection may involve the restoration or repair of existing damage to the base of a structure.
