Fire Rated Assemblies - Vision Panels
What is the requirement for proper fire rated vision panels?
If wired glass is used, and the vision opening is sized correctly according to NFPA 101-2012, Table 220.127.116.11 (does not exceed the area and dimension limits), then the wired glass is considered to be compliant. If glazed glass is used, regardless of whether the vision opening is sized correctly, the glass is to be labeled since that is the only way to determine if it is fire rated glass.
