Frequently Asked Questions

What Is The Maximum Size For A Fire Rated Vision Lite

If the commercial steel door is fire rated, then the maximum size for a fire rated vision lite with wire glass is 100 square inches of exposed glass.

Are Vision Lites Required

Vision lites in commercial steel doors are not required. However, if they are installed on commercial steel doors for visibility they must be located no more than 43 inches above the floor. Additional vision lites can be added at other heights as long as one vision lite is installed at the required height to ensure clear visibility of occupants. State and local requirements as well as any authority having jurisdiction should be checked.

Can Vision Lites Be Added After Installation

If your door is fire rated, then the vision lite must be pre-installed at the factory so that the door system can be fire rated. Any modification to the fire door after it has been rated, will void the rating.
