This is really important information for residents especially thse with children. If plate glass is being used it should be replaced immediately.  Children love to push on glass that's at their level and if it shatters it could be devastating.

Michelle & Debe, thanks for your feedback!  A lot of exterior finishes we just take for granted. But sometimes going the extra step to verify the suitability of a particular material is certainly worth it. You don't have to be an engineer or inspector to make a positive contribution to safety, which is everyone's business.
