Vision Panels for Operating Room Windows

16 September 2019

Vision Panels are ideal for any of the following industries and applications where privacy and observation controls are needed:

• Healthcare
• Commercial
• Security

They are ideal for use in operating rooms and are effective in blocking all medical lasers of all wavelengths.

The vision panel can be installed as a standard fit within the door or window aperture.  Or, it can be fitted as a flush fit where the surfaces of the unit match those of the aperture edges.

The standard fit unit is a fully bonded, semi-hermetic unit that eliminates the need for an unhygienic, metal housing and allows a tight seal to be made between the glass and the beading. It can be positioned either centrally across the door thickness, with a bead either side, or flush on one side with a single bead on the other. It comprises of three panes of glass, two of which have alternating lines of laser blocking material. The central pane can be raised and lowered by a handle so the lines move in or out of alignment and thereby allow fully controlled, discreet vision through the panel.

The flush fit vision panel is specifically designed and manufactured to suit the exact thickness of a door, so once fitted, the surface of the glazing lies completely flush with the door faces. It is sealed to the door with silicone mastic, thus providing a very hygienic detail that has no crevices or ledges for dirt or bacteria to harbor. The flush fit unit is fully bonded and is semi-hermetic comprising four panes of glass, two of which have alternating lines of laser blocking material.
