Glazing and showers


Recommended Posts


I recall that several years ago the Flat Glass Manufacturers and code writing folks were trying to develop standards for installation and fastening of glass surrounds in showers/tubs. It is my understanding these standards never made it to the latest additions to the building codes.

Comment. In my market, we are seeing larger and large walk in showers. With and without doors. Some of this glass is huge, six feet tall by eight foot in length. Might be mounted to the wall with two brackets, but none on the threshold/sill/step other than silicone.  

Need some help finding where in the IRC or Florida Building Code, I might find reference, to fastening requirements, and or design specifications. 

Thanks in advance.
