Home Maintenance Tip - Window Glass (Home Safety)

Safety glass and window placement are sometimes overlooked by home builders (yes, even new homes), architects, DIY replacements and replacement window companies. There are important safety guidelines to consider concerning the windows in a house.

 

Did you know that there are window locations in most homes that require safety glass? There are. Safety glass is etched with a safety glass approval stamp in one of the corners of the glass pane. Safety glass or tempered window glass is important for your families safety. When safety glass or tempered window glass is broken, it will generally shatter into small, dull corner pieces causing less physical damage than normal glass.

 

Here are a few of the locations which require safety glass according to today's standards:

  1. Any window glass in swinging, bi-fold or sliding glass doors.
  2. Sidelite glass where the glass is withing 24 inches of the arch of a door.
  3. Window glass within 24 inches of an entry door.
  4. All window glass larger than 9 square feet.
  5. All stairway landing window glass.
  6. All glass enclosures for showers and bathtubs.
  7. All window glass within 60 inches of a pool or spa.
  8. All entry door glass greater than 3 inches.

In addition, today's standards also state that all windows within 18 inches of the floor and all second story windows within 18 inches of the floor are a safety hazard. Especially for children and toddlers who may be prone to fall out of open windows which are to close the the floor.

 

Keeping you and your family safe is just one of the reasons to hire a professional home inspector whether you are a buyer or a seller. Inspection of the windows is just one of thousands of items your inspector is looking for to help provide a safe place to live for you and those you love.
