Vision Lite Recommendations:
- Consult factory if total vision lit area will exceed 50% of the foam area of the door.
- Avoid hardware conflicts b locating kits at least 8” (203mm) from top of door, 12” (305mm) from bottom of door,
and 7” (178mm) from the sides of door.
- Special hardware such as concealed vertical rods require engineering review when cutout area is near latch stile.
