Retrofitting glass in fire door

I have a barn conversion with solid internal fire doors rated at 30!mins. My question is if I retro fitted 4 glass panels in each as shaker style would it preserve its fire integrity?

The answer is maybe not! I am assuming the doors are timber based?

Not all fire doors are suitable for glazing and all fire doors will have limitations to the amount of FR glass permitted. Other issues are margins from edge of door to glass panel and margins between glass panels. If you still wish to proceed with glazing you are well advised to consult a fire door expert who can assess the door's suitability for glazing and provide a specification for glazing it.
