Vision Panel Options
Glazed vision panels are often used within door leaves to let light into a room, for aesthetic reasons or for safety (i.e. allowing people using the door to be seen).
Customers need only specify clear or wired glass and Door Kits will provide products suitable to the given criteria.
Glazing has a major impact on fire performance and as such there are limitations identified in the Building Regulations. Aperture shape, position, glazed area, type of bead and type of glass all influence fire performance. Our most commonly used aperture configurations, all available with fire certification up to 60 minutes, are shown below.
Those marked comply with Part M for disabled access requirements.
Alternative designs can be manufactured and Door Kits can advise on these at an early stage.
All aperture dimensions shown in this section relate to the cut-out sizes and not visible glass area.
To ensure a consistency of quality, specified performance levels and fire certification, we strongly recommend that only factory installed glazing be used. We can supply doors with provision for on-site glazing but cannot certify work carried out by others and in such cases certification must be established separately.
Apertures should not be cut into our doors on site – as this will invalidate certification.
