Vault Lights Restored & Reimagined
Innovation in materials used in structural glass applications is extending the benefit of vault lights to new applications. Structural glass can now be found in walkable skylights, glass bridges, decks, balconies, landings, risers, and stair treads.
As well as new applications, innovative architects are making the old new again through the use of the historic aesthetic of vault lights cast in composite concrete or cast iron frames, which can be used for walls and ceilings. Prefabricated panels can be custom-engineered to achieve the architect’s vision. Built to withstand structural loading requirements, the design can incorporate different glass shapes, textures, and colors. Steel, stainless steel, and cast iron pavement lights are available in a variety of finishes and colors too.
