  • "SIDEWALK LIGHTS. One of the classes of work which the concrete worker usually dislikes to do is that of setting sidewalk lights. For one thing, it is not usually an easy class of work; and for another thing, the lights get broken and require frequent renewal and attention. This subject has been given careful consideration by the Bayley Structural Iron Company, Milwaukee, and they have evolved the Perfection Ezeset sidewalk light as a result. It was discovered by this company that more than 90 per cent of broken glasses in sidewalk lights are caused by the expansion of the glass, this expansion being much greater than that of the cement in which they are laid. In these lights special attention has been given to the necessity of providing for the expansion of the glasses to prevent them from breaking. A particularly easy and rapid method of setting the lights is also a part of the system controlled by the Bayley Structural Iron Company of Milwaukee, who will be glad to give particulars on application." —The Cement Era — Vol. 14, No. 3, March 1916

Perfection Ezeset Sidewalk Light.
The Bayley Structural Iron Co., Milwaukee, are placing on the market their Perfection Ezeset Sidewalk Light, the construction of which is shown in the accompanying illustration. The continued expense that the property owner is subject to on account of broken glasses in sidewalk lights is eliminated by installing the Perfection Ezeset Sidewalk Light.
It is stated that more than 90 per cent of broken glasses in sidewalk lights is caused by the expansion of the glasses which is much greater than the cement in which they are laid.
In designing the construction of the Ezeset Sidewalk Light, special attention has been given to the necessity of providing for the expansion of the glasses to prevent them from breaking.
This has been perfected in the construction of the Perfection Ezeset Sidewalk Light and the breaking of the glasses caused by expansion, it is stated, is entirely eliminated.
In the construction there are three units. First is the metal holder for each glass, with water-proof expanding material between glass and metal holder; the second is the steel angle carrying bar for metal holder; the exposed surface of these angles being at an angle of 45 degrees, the reflected light is diffused in all directions, eliminating the expense of using prism glass. Third is the steel angle bar for end support of steel angle bar, number two.
The Bayley Structural iron Co. are also manufacturers of structural iron and steel for buildings, fire escapes and ornamental iron works. Additional information will be sent on application.

A New Sidewalk Light
The illustration shows the details and general appearance of the Ezeset sidewalk light, which is claimed to have special advantages. It will be noted that the construction is very simple, being a combination of a notched structural angle bearing its entire length on the sub-structure and a plain angle kept in alignment by the notches and so placed as to retain the concrete and give great rigidity to the framework. It will also be noted that, because of the way in which the supporting angles are set, there is no obstruction to the rays of light, giving exceptional lighting for the amount of glass exposed. The shape of the glass is designed to give the greatest possible area of lighting and to obviate much trouble with broken lights caused by expansion of the glass. The simplicity of the supports allows great freedom in fitting the framework to any sized opening.
