Vistamatic® VistaGlide


The Vistamatic® Vista-Glide™ (patent pending no.1104905.3) has been specifically developed to improve the tactility of operation in larger panels. Vista-Glide™offers a unique and progressive movement in allowing the unit to close silently and smoothly eliminating sudden impact and percussion.

The Vista-Glide™ mini damping system is a revelation where secure and discreet observation is required and where the need for larger panels is a necessity. Operated by an attractive chrome handle a simple half turn of the lever allows the panel to move from completely opaque to a 50% linear vision aspect.

A quick flick of the lever in the reverse direction allows the interior panel to silently glide to its resting place reversing the visual aspect to complete opacity thus providing total privacy.

Available in panel sizes upto 40" x 40" and no other vision panel in the world offers this feature.

The Vistamatic® Vista-Glide™ is a revelation in that it can provide a variety of solutions to a multitude of problems. Ideal for office partitioning, corridor viewing, nursing stations or as a manual vision access control system the Vista-Glide™ is truly unique and comes with a Lifetime* Warranty.
