Is there any ability or approved products that can be added to fire-rated glass exit doors to screen intense sun aside from tinting the glass? We were looking for some type of solution that could be applied to the doors. I thought perhaps an exterior rated plantation shutter panel could be adhered to the exterior of the door to block out some of the light. I saw that no penetrations like screws or nails would be allowed on a fire-rated assembly, but am lacking knowledge of a product that would be permissible.
The property wanted to put exterior drapery that could cover over doors, and I said this was a big NO as it would impede the function of the door and block exit discharge.
Would love to know your thoughts!
