Grand Light to Restore Light Fixtures from Attica Correctional Facility

Grand Light is set to restore two outdoor light fixtures from the front gate of the well-known Attica Correctional Facility. The maximum security prison, built in 1931, has held some of the country’s most dangerous inmates including Mark David Chapman, Willie “The Actor” Sutton, Kendall Francois, and Colin Ferguson.


The fixtures, located near the door in the picture above, are two of the first things people are likely to see when entering the prison.  They were custom built to match the facade of the building, and have seen extensive wear and tear from exposure to the weather.

Grand Light will completely restore the fixtures to their original state and provide a corrosion resistant steel base, which will house an electronic 0 degree ballast and two compact fluorescent lamps with sockets. Missing rosettes and other damaged or missing parts will be fabricated as needed.
