Patio glass doors re-purposed to deck railing glass?


Have a question.

I have a pile of patio doors. I am redoing my deck railing. Could I use these doors as large windows within the railing?

Don't see why not just so little feet do not get to the panels when they are not pitter pattering around. Is it tempered or safety glass now? Then I would have no concerns.

Do it all the time. Split the panels so you get 2 for 1. You’ll probably have to order a piece of tempered glass to finish off the oddball size you’ll probably need to finish off the run.
