Safety glazing code help


Recommended Posts

Get a copy of Code Check. There is an excellent diagram of the safety glass requirements. Generally, in manufactured 3 season patio rooms all the glass is tempered but there are exceptions. If there is a hot tub in the patio room then all the glass must be tempered. If it's stick built then your locally adopted building code applies.

Some basics are: any door, anything adjacent to or less that 24" from a door (except transoms), anything closer than 18" to the floor, overhead glazings, and shower enclosures to name a few.
