SDS Accessories

When it comes to accessorising internal doorsets in any healthcare or clinical environment, glazing is a vital element and we offer vision panels to suit your requirements.

The correct size and positioning of vision panels is fundamental for safety, compliance, light admittance and user comfort. The type of glass used, and the glazing methods are also key, to ensure fire integrity, acoustic ratings, and safety.

SDS offers a large number of standard Vision Panel Types.

These provide a number of different size and layout options and have been designed following many years of experience in the industry. Vision panels noted with ‘Part M’, also comply with the Building Regulations Approved Document Part M (BS8300) and the Equality Act (EA) 2010.

The Building Regulations Approved Document Part M (BS8300) also states that doors within entrance and reception areas, and other appropriate internal doors which are wider than 450mm, must be provided with a Part M compliant vision panel as noted above.

We also offer a range of ancillary items for your SDS internal doorsets, including a choice of escutcheons, turn and release handles, and cylinder pulls.
