Glazed apertures can be introduced to a door specification for reasons of safety, aesthetics or to permit the transfer of light. Vision panels can be selected from a range of popular configurations shown below, or can be produced to order for a bespoke product. Please contact our technical team for more information.
Vision panels are constructed to comply with the fire rating of the door-set into which they are fitted, and for this reason are factory glazed.
Part M of the Building Regulations stipulates that all entrance doors and internal doors where the door leaf or side panel is wider than 450mm (other than for reasons of security) should include a vision panel. The vision panel should be installed toward the leading edge of the door and its vertical dimensions should include the minimum zone or zones for visibility.
