Vision Lite Conversion and Installation

June 7, 2024

This customer had a need to provide visibility and light into an existing room. Door 28 cut vision lite into an existing door. This vision light door conversion provided the visibility and lighting the customer desired. Additionally an added interior glass swinging door was installed to allow external natural lighting to penetrate into the interior hallway and into the newly converted vision light door.

Advantages of a vision light door installation:

Increase Natural Light
Vision light doors allow light from exterior sources to enter an otherwise dark space.

Allow a Space to Feel Larger
Vision light also helps an interior space feel “larger” by removing the perceived obstruction of a sold door. Rather than feeling “boxed in,” vision light doors promote a sense of openness and transparency in the workplace.

Compliance and Safety Standards
In certain commercial and public buildings, vision light doors may be required to comply with safety regulations, particularly in emergency exits and fire-rated doors.

Improved Safety
Because vision light panels are transparent, people can see who or what is on the other side of the door, reducing the risk of collisions, especially in high-traffic areas. Additionally, vision light provides a way to identify visitors before opening the door, enhancing security.

Energy Efficiency
The passage of natural light reduces the need for artificial electrical lighting during the day, potentially lowering energy costs.
