We’ve all seen movies or television shows that have featured a scene where the hero, villain, or even a hapless victim, falls from a great height and tumbles precariously through the air until landing on – and typically going through – a giant skylight below. Naturally, the unsuspecting people in the room below never expected to encounter someone who, quite literally, crashed a party that way before! Regardless, such calamities make for great action scenes in fictional movies, and the reality is that skylights, especially those manufactured by Bristolite Daylighting Systems, are quite tough when put to the test in the real world.
For example, our Tufflite Polycarbonate industrial commercial skylight series can easily withstand 400lb. test loads, making them among the strongest on the market. Yet, there might be an instance where even greater protective measures are required. In these extreme cases, an externally mounted safety screen may need to be installed over the top of an existing skylight. Thankfully, we have a solution as part of our Gladiator series. We offer a galvanized steel wire mesh safety cage that features a 4” square grid pattern comprised of ¼” wire. These structures have been tested against, and comply with, OSHA-CFR fall protection guidelines, so you can rest assured that your business, regardless of the types of skylights it features, will be safeguarded against falling debris, monsters, or evildoers.
