The appeals board of the International Code Council (ICC) yesterday
heard and denied an appeal filed on behalf of wired glass manufacturers
that would have affected the International Building Code (IBC).
The denial lets stand a decision last May that had prohibited

The ICC appeals board denied the appeal by a 3-0 vote. The appeals

a board of directors meeting in two weeks. According to sources,
the wired glass industry is considering a hearing before the ICC
