    Default safety glazing required next to tub in 1993?

    Can someone verify for me that safety glazing was required in 1993 as it is now, when windows are right next to a bathtub?

    I do not know if it was required or not.
    However you can (and should) still write it in the report as a safety concern.

    John,
    Here are the relative pages from the 1991 UBC, which we were using in Montana at that time. 5406 D 5 etc.

    Of course. I just would like to be able say that it was required when the house was built, also.

    Pardon me John, I just realized the top portion of the page (797) did not copy. Sec. 5406-(d)-5 reads as follows: Glazing in doors and enclosures for hot tubs, whirlpools, saunas, steam rooms, bathtubs and showers. Glazing in any portion of a building wall enclosing these compartments where the bottom exposed edge of the glazing is less than 60 inches above a standing surface and drain inlet.
