NEW GLASS LINE FROM ADVANTAGE LITES & LOUVERS COMES WITH A SAFETY PLUS

   Bronx, N.Y. – Advantage Lites & Louvers’ (ALL) new glass product line provides options to meet the full range of code requirements for fire and impact-safety ratings for door vision lites. With introduction of the new line, ALL also provides a convenient way to prepare for the likelihood of stepped-up enforcement of labeling requirements for fire-rated glass in door lites during annual fire door inspections under NFPA 80 2007. Buying lite kits and glass together from Advantage Lites & Louvers ensures proper labeling and compliance with all fire and safety codes, minimizing costs and penalties for owners and managers. It also allows distributors to avoid the pitfalls of stocking and labeling their own glass.

ALL’s complete selection of glass for door lites ranges from top-fire-rated ceramic safety glazing to mid-range fire and safety wired and clear glass solutions. All models are also available in convenient lite kits designed to ensure correct size and fit.

ALL’s premium ceramic solutions for side lites, transoms and larger interior doors are SuperLite™ C/P glazing and safety-rated SuperLite™ C/SP. Both are listed for higher fire-rated applications up to 180 minutes. SuperLite C/SP meets Category 2 requirements to withstand up to 400 lbs of pressure, which is highest federal standard for impact safety.

Appropriate for almost all indoor applications, SuperLite I-W™ glazing is fire-rated up to 90 minutes. For 20-minute applications, ALL offers SuperLite 20 clear wireless glazing. Both models are safety-rated for Category 2 impact resistance.

Production facilities for Advantage Lites & Louvers are located in Wallace, North Carolina. In addition to its glass products and vision lite kits, ALL manufactures a full line door louvers and accessories.

Advantage Lites & Louvers is a subsidiary of Zero International, a leading manufacturer of door and window sealing hardware known for the quality of its product line. That line includes sound-control gasketing, INTUMET™ positive-pressure fire and smoke assemblies, and a full array of other specialized sealing systems for doors and windows; a complete line of photoluminescent exit signs and marking systems; high-performance continuous hinges; and TRACTION TREAD™ systems for door saddles and stair nosings.
