Fire door vision panels

Vision panels - the glazed panels within fire doors - like the fire door itself, the frame and any fixtures and fittings of the doorset must be matched to the certification of the fire door itself in order to maintain the fire prevention capabilities and certification rating of the fire doorset.

Glazed vision panels

Building Life (Fire Doors) Ltd only use certificated glazing systems within its fire doors and frames in order to maintain the integrity and certification of the door / doorset. We cut and glaze each door and door frame panel individually in our purpose built factory - according to customer requirements - and can offer a wide range of vision panel shapes and sizes (see our styles and frames pages) as well as offering a wide variety of fire-rated glass from the leading manufacturers eg. Pilkington

Any opening cut into a fire door introduces a potential weakness, Building Life (Fire Doors) Ltd takes great care in ensuring that all vision panels are installed correctly with the correct fittings and fully meet all certification requirements. We ensure that all seals, beads, fixings and liner spacings of the vision panel are fully compatible with the fire door / doorset in order to maintain the full certification fire rating of the door / doorset.

Certain ratings of fire doors and doorsets do limit the maximum area of a fire door / doorset that can be glazed.
