Window Wells

Window Wells allow air, sunlight and access to a basement or below-grade space by acting as a barrier to the surrounding backfill. Each corrugated well is made using 18-gauge galvanized steel for durability and corrosion resistance.

The top and bottom edges are formed and rolled over to eliminate sharp edges and support a person standing on a ladder or grate. Fasteners are installed through the pre-punched key-hole slots on the flanges.

Standard heights for egress include 48”, 60” and 72” tall wells. Other sizes are available on request.

HD Egress Ladders

The HD Egress Ladder is designed for emergency situations. The HD Egress Ladder can be used to escape from the basement or as an access option for emergency personnel. The hooked ends of the ladder hang over the rim of the Window Well, supporting the ladder in the well.

IRC code requires ladders in wells deeper than 44”. Standard HD Egress Ladders are 4’, 5’ and 6’ lengths.


High-quality Grates keep people and objects from falling into the Window Well. The Grate is made of rolled angle iron steel, and welded steel safety bars.

Premium mesh grates are also available to keep leaves and other debris out of the Window Wells.
