Waster in 48" Glass

The illustration above shows the relative eye levels of various heights of individuals standing and sitting with the top of the window frame set to match the 86″ overall height of a 7′-0″ door frame. A 48″ piece of glass will bring the bottom of the window well below eye level and add cost without function.

Leaded glass is the most expensive single construction item in a room requiring radiation protection. In many cases the glass is specified to be 48″ high without consideration of the eye levels required for viewers. 36″ and 42″ high glass is significantly more cost effective and will handle persons of just about all heights. Glass is sold and priced by the square inch, so the short height saves money without sacrificing function.
