Large Vision Areas Must Be Fire Resistive
The 2012 IBC makes it clear that vision panels in 60 and 90 minute temperature-rise doors located in paths of egress must work to protect passersby from radiant heat transmission. To meet both IBC and ADA, vision areas must be large and fire-resistive.
SuperLite II-XL Meets 2012 IBC and ADA
SAFTI FIRST’s SuperLite II-XL blocks radiant heat, meets ASTM E119 wall standards and can be used in 60 and 90 minute temperature rise doors and adjoining sidelites and transoms. Because it’s fire-resistive, vision areas featuring SuperLite II-XL can be larger than 100 sq in.
