Flush Vision Panels


Flush vision panels are a stunning design addition to any door in your hotel, bar, restaurant or other public or commercial building. Not only do they look great, but fire-rated flush vision panels also allow lots of lovely light to flood through otherwise claustrophobic corridors and help keep your staff and customers safe by improving your building's visibility and fire safety.  


Also known as vision lights, glazing panels or vision frames, vision panels offer many benefits to your building. From safety and security to accessibility and compliance, here are our top six reasons to fit vision panels in your doors.   



Having vision frames fitted in your doors makes it possible to see what's on the other side of a door while the door remains closed. A fire-rated vision panel means a fire can be assessed safely through a closed fire door. Flush vision panels are also great in potentially hazardous environments, such as laboratories, and busy areas, such as restaurants, bars, and clubs, where they help reduce the risk of potential collisions from either side.  



In potentially hazardous or security-sensitive environments, vision frames allow activity to be monitored and any necessary supervision or monitoring.

Along with improving visibility, safety, and security, flush vision panels will enhance the visual appearance of your doors. Sleek and modern in design, vision frames create a sense of connection and a more open feel throughout your building. Our extensive range of fire-rated and non-fire-rated vision frames is available in a wide variety of styles, sizes, and shapes. Our Slimport clear glass vision frames feature a unique concealed fixing to create clean lines and can be used singularly or in multiples to produce unique and design-led doors.   



Natural Light  

By allowing more natural light to flow between the spaces in your building, vision panels brighten interiors and reduce the need for as much artificial light during the day. More natural light means a healthier living environment and improved energy efficiency.   


Accessibility & Compliance  

Circular, square or rectangular vision frames look great and provide many practicalities, whether for aesthetic reasons, to let in light, or for fire safety reasons. An extended vision panel or multiple smaller flush vision panels could create a suitable zone of visibility for wheelchair and non-wheelchair users. Your single or multiple vision panels should create a minimum zone of visibility between 500mm and 1500mm from the floor. To comply with ADM regulations, all circulation doors, such as entrance doors, corridor doors, lobby doors, and some internal doors in public buildings, should contain vision panels.   


Traffic Flow   

Whatever your public or commercial building is used for, vision frames can ease traffic flow and help with navigation. Glazed panels in your doors will let people see if a room or area is occupied, reducing unnecessary door openings and creating smoother movement within your building.
