Is safety or tempered glass required in storm windows?

Safety glass, or tempered glass, is stronger than regular glass and is designed to break into small “cubes​" (instead of larger, more dangerous shards) when broken.  Local building codes may require safety glass in windows in certain locations, such as near stairs or in bathrooms.  Consult your local building department to determine if there are any local building code requirements that need to be met.
