Vision Control® is the market-leading louvered glazing solution that can be customized to virtually any shape in interior or exterior glazing applications for unmatched function and performance.
Its advanced louvered glazing technology eliminates strings, ensures alignment and requires no maintenance. In interior applications, Vision Control® and Vision Control® Mini offer complete adjustable privacy and visibility and reduce the risk of spreading infection. When installed in exterior applications, Vision Control® significantly reduces energy consumption in support of LEED certification requirements.
Unicel Architectural has a strong track record of supplying Vision Control® systems to many behavioral and mental health centers across Canada and the USA. It's now the gold standard in cord-free integrated louvers product that has passed the AAMA 501.8 Behavioral Health Tests for 2,000 ft-lbs of Human Impact on both Interior and Exterior applications.
With the advent of more frequent and powerful storms, glazing that can resist the punishing high winds of a hurricane or tropical storm has become more important than ever. The latest edition of Vision Control® advanced louvered glazing are certified to withstand hurricane-strength winds and made from multiple glass panes reinforced with a polymer layer. Impact-resistant hurricane-rated windows don't shatter when broken and don't require building owners to install additional storm shutters or other protective devices. Unicel Architectural's hurricane-rated insulating glass units – including those outfitted with Vision Control® and Vision Control® Mini – have received certification for hurricane resistance in the U.S. state of Florida.
Our fire-rated IGU with integrated, cord-free louvers is the perfect solution for buildings that require both fire protection and privacy control. Vision Control® and Vision Control® Mini and Pilkington Pyrostop® fire-rated glazing provide unprecedented privacy control with fire ratings of 20, 45, 60, and 90 minutes for doors, windows, transoms, and sidelights.
