* Please note that Metropolitans' Doors and frames have been approved for use with the VSG line of glass products; which means our doors & frames are approved to follow the glass specifications rather than the door specifications.  This means that Metropolitan can exceed the typical 100 Sq. Inches of visible glass in a B-labeled door...actually we can use up to 1511 Sq. Inches (with the FR-F glass) and even larger with other glass product models.  Some restrictions do apply.  See details below.
