I am a window and door buyer in arkansas and just happened to be thinking about skylights and i know that velux offers either tempered glass on the inner pane or laminated glass on it. why does the building code not require laminated glass on all skylights? My thinking is that anything overhead and has the possibilty of breaking due to hail storm, tree limbs breaking in a storm, or snow or ice build up, etc. i know skylights are normally installed on a angle but these problems could still occur. Wouldn't everyone think it would be better to make laminated glass standard code in skylights. could be a dangerous situation if a broken skylight glass fell on someone's head.
just my opinion.
