VISTAMATIC Vision Panels Receive UL 20 and 45 min. Fire Ratings

VISTAMATIC LLC has announced that its vision panels, using 16 gauge metal frames and intumescent glazing compound, were tested to UL 20 and 45 minute fire retardant and hose stream test (UL 10C) for window assemblies. Tested in accordance with the UL 9 and UBC 7-4 standards, VISTAMATIC vision panels were judged to comply and be eligible for UL Classification and product marking. The VISTAMATIC panels also conform to British ISO, fire test standards, according to a company news release.

"The UL fire test classification, will open a much larger audience for the product because architects, door manufactures and municipalities require this rating for many installations," says managing partner, Kevin Roth.

The company promotes its patented VISTAMATIC viewing panel as "perfect for discreet, effective surveillance of secure or sensitive areas." Comprising clear and opaque sheets of glass in a single frame, the VISTAMATIC vision panel is opened and closed using a choice of integral levers or handles. The vision panel is maintenance-free and, because it is triple-glazed, sound transmission is minimal.

The vision panels are available in standard sizes, with custom sizes manufactured on request and can be retrofitted both to doors or walls. Panels are also available incorporating special glass for protection against X-ray, laser, vandalism, fire and bullets. The VISTAMATIC vision panels can be designed to incorporate logos and signage.
