Re: Skylights over Bay Windows, Sentences 22.214.171.124.(2) and 126.96.36.199.(1)
With reference to your letter of May 17, 1989 regarding the roof portion of a partial enclosure on a balcony.
Sentence 188.8.131.52.(1) is being applied to the situation but this gives us difficulty as we do not consider the Sentence is intended to deal with the type of case in question, although we can see its technical application by the authority having jurisdiction.
For the specific design submitted it would seem that the problem with the application of the Sentence can be overcome by applying the provisions of Sentence 184.108.40.206.(2) to the skylight construction. The application of this latter Sentence, and the reinforced concrete upstand, should meet the fire hazard referred to in Sentence 220.127.116.11.(1).
