In a commercial environment hollow metal doors become dangerous without a viewing window. How many times have you seen someone get struck by a door just simply because the person that was opening it had no idea there was someone behind it? That’s why windows can be so beneficial. Even if it’s a small viewing window it gives someone the opportunity to see someone coming.
In hospital settings you almost always see a viewing window in most of their doors. There’s just so much foot traffic that people have to have a heads up before a big heavy door opens up and takes someone out.
In emergency situations rushing through a big hollow metal door that weighs 150 to 200 lbs can cause some serious injuries. In these situations adding a window to a commercial door is essential for safety.
We now offer window installation on site. A lot of times we don’t even have to take the door down. 30 minutes later and you have a window in your door and everybody is a lot safer because of it.
