2nd floor sliding glass windows

Recommended Posts

This photo shows a second floor sliding glass window. I called out the fact that there is no balcony or guard installed. I believe this to be a common sense safety issue, but I am looking for an opinion as to whether or not this violates IRC 312.01 which requires a guardrail for any 'walkoff >30" above floor or grade". Does a threshold 4" from the floor make this a window and not a sliding glass door? Thoughts?
