Fire Rated Doors and Wired-Glass | Ask the Experts | Ask the Door Guys

Question:

Is it possible to order a fire rated door with a window that does not have the wire in the glass?

 

Answer:

Yes, you can now have a wire free window in a fire rated door by using a glass product specially designed for this application such as FireLite glass. In addition to not having any wire in the glass, you can also exceed the 100 square inches that wire glass was limited to. However, there are still some size & rating restrictions.  For exact restrictions, it’s best to always double check with the local authority to make sure all windows and door lites and in compliance.
