Is a tempered glass window a requirement in a bathroom near a shower
or is it a requirement only if the window is in the shower? This is
for a house in NJ. I would appreciate you clarifications.
Tempered glass is typically a requirement for glass doors that
someone may try and walk through.
It *may* be required if the window is very low -- say 30 ins
or less off the floor, but probably not. However, you might
consider it a smart move if the window is that low and you
have small children.
Call the permit folks at your local City Hall. They will
most likely be able to tell you right away and their
answer will be a lot more authoritative than anything
you'll find on Usenet!

Harry, every year a number of kids are injured in accidents involving
non-tempered glass in or next to a door. Even if you don't have kids, some
may visit or the next owner of your home is likely to. It is not ridiculous
to follow the code, it is ridiculous not to.
