"This pergola and lighting endured about 30 minutes of battering from "golf ball" sized hail and the lights never even flickered!"
I just had to let someone at CAST Lighting know about the durability of the CAST Lighting products I recently installed. I built a long pergola onto the back of my house and installed 11 niche lights up into the pergola beams. Here's the part I am in awe of: A few days ago, we had tornados touching done in the city along with tremendous hail and horizontal winds. This pergola and lighting endured about 30 minutes of battering from "golf ball" sized hail and the lights never even flickered! The bulbs are still burning bright. The niche cans have a little temporary patina discolor from where the hail hit them…but NO DENTS AT ALL!! This hail storm broke out windows and beat up all the venting on the roof, caused the pergola beams to splinter in places. It's true you get what you pay for and I'm glad I chose CAST for my lighting products!
