Landscaping and safety glass


Do you have to have safety glass in a window if the landscaping is less than 18" from the bottom of the widow? on the exterior

Landscaping and safety glass


The code for tempered glass is when the bottom edge of the glass is within 18" of the floor (and there are some other qualifiers as well). Landscaping is completely irrelevant.
