    The California Building Code as of Jan. 1, 2008 requires minimum guard rail height at landings, porches, decks, and balconies more than 30 inches above grade to be 42 inches in vertical height.

    WC Jerry,

    Would you clarify the wording shown on the left side:

    4" diameter sphere shall not pass (<4.375 diam. sphere within units in Groups R-2 and R-3) ... "within" ... is the word I am interested in.
