Individual design and effective protection with ACO light shaft gratings

Many variants for individual needs

All ACO light shafts can be optionally equipped with cover gratings that can be walked on or driven over. Any loads that occur can be safely transferred via the grating into the building structure.

Different types are available. In addition to the classic grating in galvanised steel or stainless steel, there are specially designed covers for your terrace as well as glass covers for extra light in the basement.

The ACO light shaft gratings made of galvanised steel and also stainless steel cover a wide range of applications. For terraces and walkways, for example, the MW 30/10 mesh grating or the stainless steel design gratings are recommended, while the trafficable mesh grating is the right choice for carports. For special applications, shortened or extended gratings provide a secure light shaft cover.


The Vario design light shaft cover is made of high-quality stainless steel. In the partial glass version, the cover fits particularly well with adjacent façade drainage channels. The grate and glass surface are safe to walk on.

The Vario Design light shaft cover can be individually adapted. Different gratings and profiles can be used. The profiles can also be made from decking boards or similar.

The all-glass version of the Vario Design light shaft cover lets especially a lot of light into the basement. The safety glass is equipped with slip resistance and can be walked on.
