18" from the walking surface is just part of the code.

It also needs to be larger than 9 sq/ft, top edge is higher than 36" from the walking surface, and withing 36" of a walking surface.

Welcome to the forums!

Is the glazing in a door? http://publicecodes.citation.com/ico...008_par005.htm

Where is it located? http://publicecodes.citation.com/ico...008_par006.htm

Is this a residence or commercial building?
