Pool Lantern Restoration

New Haven, CT – Grand Light has been contracted by an upscale residence in White Plains, New York to restore 8 large brass lamps which hang above a 126′ indoor, Olympic sized swimming pool.

These fixtures were brought to Grand Light because of mechanical failure to the air ventilation system in the wing of this upscale residence in White Plains. These lanterns were exposed to high levels of moisture and chlorine due to this mechanical failure with the ventilation system and suffered severe damage to the finish and mechanical components. Staining had been present throughout the fixtures.
