Door lite kits allow for your company to install a fire-rated window on an interior door. They are designed to meet industry standards so you can be certain that the lite frames are reliable. They can also be selected to meet the specific needs of your business.

Glass and Frame Options

The three main types of frames to choose from are rectangle frames, oval frames, and custom frames. Some frames are designed to hold leaded glass and others are designed to hold thick glass. There are many types of glass you can use for your facility that are all fire-rated.

There are also many clarity options to choose from based on your needs. For example, if you would prefer to have more privacy, you can use acid-etched glass. The glass can contain a wire that makes it more difficult for intruders to break through the glass and the wire is also fire-rated.

What to Expect From a Frame

Door lite frames are designed to fit almost all doorways because they are set to industry standards. They are also very easy to install. They will not only provide light into a room but will also provide security.

They come with an interlocking seam that increases the rigidity as will as the reinforced hinges. The screw holes are also positioned strategically to provide for the most secure fit. The screw hole plugs self-align so that they fit the frame as well as possible.

Rust-Resistant Frame Primer

The frames have a primer applied to them that prevents the frames from rusting. This allows for the frames to last a very long time and also reduces the risk that rust will lead to a security flaw. Usually, a finish paint top coat is applied to the frame after the frame has been installed. The finishes can come in a variety of colors including brown, gray, black, and white.

Waterproof Grooves and Weather-Resistant Frames

The grooves are caulked so that the door can be as weatherproof as possible and this also makes your door frame as clean as possible. These types of frames are meant to not break even when subjected to severe weather.

Fire-Rated Frames

To be considered fire-rated, door lite frames are tested to make sure that they can resist fire for a period of time. Therefore, you'll have confidence in knowing that your building will be more secure against fires and other hazards.
