    hmmm. i have conflicting information here. anyone able to nail this down with me.

    required safety glazing:
    area more than 9 sf
    bottom edge at <18”
    adjacent to (either side?) a door and within 24” of the door

    i also have an illustration here showing “the top edge of the glazing is greater than 36” AFF?

    then i have an illustration showing “less than 60” to the lower edge of the window?this one is confusing.

    anyone know what the 60” or 36” are referring to?
    what about whether the 24” minimum applies to both sides of the door?

    also. i have a ceros here that refers to 2406.4.3 which i am not finding in 2015 IBC or in my 2012 IRC. so if anyone know where this topic is in IBC i would be interested in looking at the actual code.

    so it’s <60” (5’) A.F.F. AND <24” adjacent to either side of a door
    or
    >18” any area
    or
    > 9sf
    ?

    Jonathan,

    I have never told any candidate to read IRC. The bulk of the questions you'll be asked about on the exam are commercial building related, and residential principles apply just the same to those buildings. In most jurisdictions (maybe all?) you don't even need to be a licensed architect to design a home of one or two dwellings, so stick to IBC.

    If you are going to reference codes and illustrations, you are making it much more difficult for us to respond by not including your code references and your illustrations. Please do so.

    The overwhelming majority of anything in chapter 24 is too detailed for this exam. Please also reference your conflicting sections with this section when asking. I cannot respond to this questions without more clarity and background information. Slapping us with a bunch of dimensions and not showing us clearly what they are applied to is wasting both of our time.

     

    Please, please, please Jonathan. Take your time when asking these questions.
