Safety glass?


Recommended Posts

This is above the tub, but I couldn't find any kind of etching. So, not safety glass? Its got the no see through texture.

The requirement became part of BOCA in 1996. Depending on age of house, may not have been required. Still should be pointed out.

...if it is "decorative" it doesn't have to meet. Could be lots of slack cut by inspect of original, or no inspect at all. Within 60 vertical inches of tub drain should be tempered.

The decorative glazing exception doesn't apply to windows over tubs.

Obscure glass over a tub shouldn't be considered to be decorative anyway. In order to qualify as "decorative" glazing, the panel has to be "decorative" or "artistic" and "not functional." It's also got to be divided into segments.
