Everlasting Skylights

Think of it -- the average life of the ordinary skylight is only about five years, even though it is painted and puttied every year. The cost of upkeep equals the installation cost every four years.

With these facts before you, isn't it economy to install a skylight that will last -- without any attention -- as long as the building stands, even though the first cost is more? These are the two types of everlasting skylights:

3 Way-Simplex
Reinforced Concrete

Made of heavy glass lenses 6 1/8" square, set in double reinforced concrete. Can be installed in spans up to 12 feet without transverse supporting beams. Gives great volume of daylight because of this.

Shipped ready to set in place or in preformed slabs to be finished on the job.

Unequaled for all-concrete and masonry buildings -- unaffected by weather or fumes. For flat skylights, it has great value because it is so strong that snow loads do not affect it. Can be walked on in safety. Needs no protecting screen..
