c)         Wall-Hung Fixtures .  Wall-hung fixtures  shall be rigidly supported by a concealed metal supporting member so that no strain is transmitted to the fixture connection.

 

d)         Setting.  Plumbing fixtures and traps shall be set level and in a true alignment.

f)          Improper Location.  Piping, fixtures, or equipment shall not be located or installed in such a manner as to interfere with the normal operation of windows, doors, or other exit openings.  Plumbing fixtures shall be installed in an area where there is sufficient room for the fixture to be used for its intended purpose.

 

g)         Where plumbing is installed it shall meet the requirements of the Illinois Accessibility Code (71 Ill. Adm. Code 400).
