Aluminum SA6000 Vison Lite Options

Note: The glazing material (Thermoclear®) used is ideal for humid environments, however it differs from glass in that it’s not sealed, therefore condensation may form in the cellular walls when interior/exterior temperatures are such that dew point temperatures are created (usually in periods of cooler weather).
This condensation usually disappears when warmer weather returns.

Insert Panel Options

Full aluminum insert panels are available in anodized and painted colurs.

Also available in kick-proof design with insulated core.
