Doors and any window or side lite beside or above a door require safety glass. Either tempered glass or laminate glass will meet code.
Tempered glass is the better choice in most cases. Tempering is the process of strengthening glass by heating it until nearly molten, and then cooling it at a specific, controlled rate. Once tempered, glass will break into small chunks rather than long, knife-like shards, a vital improvement in safety.
For certain applications, we may also use laminate glass. Laminate glass is similar to what's in a windshield. If the glass should break, the pieces will cling to the laminate sheet inside rather than break apart into shards. When size, placement, and shape permit, laminate glass can be useful for securing your property quickly and avoiding a board-up service.
