- "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

Ezeset Sidewalk Light.
The Bayley Structural Iron Co.,
Milwaukee, are placing on the market their Perfection
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
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.
Ezeset Sidewalk Light.
|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.
