SentryGlas Laminated Glass For Cathedral Restoration

key feature of the new restoration of the Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament in Sacramento, California (USA), originally dedicated in 1889, is the reopening of an interior central dome, which had been covered over since the 1930s.

The restored inner dome, with its brilliantly coloured, 7.3 m- (24 ft-) diameter lay light incorporating DuPont SentryGlas Expressions from Digiglass, decorative laminated glass technology in lieu of traditional stained glass, at once dramatically alters the interior look of the Cathedral, allowing light to filter down from high above, and complies with today's safety standards for overhead glazing.
