Does anyone know requirements for safety glass in standard window installations. Somthing more in depth than a height standard. What are some specifics?
If he glass meets all of the following conditions, it must be safety/tempered;
9’ sq ft or more exposed glazing
18" or less from the ground
Top edge 3’ or more above ground
Within 36" of a walking surface
There are many other conditions where safety/tempered glass is required. Do you have a more specific question?
Sean go to this http://www.nachi.org/safety-glass-for-inspectors.htm
What about these glass panels between rooms?
Seems like a potential safety concern if the glass is not tempered.
I need to look more closely when I go back tomorrow. Or would you highly intelligent people be able to tell from the picture.
No you guy’s answered my questions. I was just splitting hairs with a builder the other day about the windows. I have my answer. Thanks
I say no Dave. They appear to be more than 18" off of the floor.
