Fire-Rated Vision Control® Integrated Louvers

Our Vision Control® and Vision Control Mini® integrated louvered assemblies are available with award-winning fire safety ratings of 20, 45, 60, and 90 minutes on doors, windows, transoms, and sidelights.

Unicel Architectural’s fire-rated glazing solutions meet UL LLC fire-resistance rated assemblies standards, and are composed of fire-rated steel trims and Pilkington Pyrostop® fire-rated glazing. Pilkington Pyrostop® is a clear, laminated glazing material that blocks radiant heat, smoke, and flames, while Vision Control® provides unprecedented comfort and control of vision, light, temperature and sound.

Vision Control® is a patented, ligature-resistant, hermetically-sealed glass unit that requires no maintenance. It combines louvers within glass to eliminate strings and cords, ensuring full control of vision, light, temperature, and sound, and its mold-resistant and non-toxic materials provide optimal hygiene. Vision Control® can even be operated remotely through a mobile app.

Fire-rated Vision Control® assemblies complement residential, commercial, health care and behavioral health, educational, correctional, and other institutional and sustainable building projects with fire resistance requirements.
