In-swing Basement Egress Windows

In-swing Basement Windows

We have basement windows that can be used for new construction or replacements and are Energy Star rated.  The sash and screen are inside the frame for one step installation. The great advantage to In-Swing Windows is that they swing into the home, so they cannot be impeded by any obstruction in your window well, like ice and snow. Also they do not subtract from the egress well square footage and compromise your ability to comply with local codes.  Our windows have a full and nominal 8″ frame depth that provides a fast, hassle free installation.  The patented design allows the header, sill and jamb pieces to be removed, reversed, and replaced to easily adapt the installation to any situation.  Sashes are easily removable when not locked allowing a wide, clear opening to move material through during construction.

List of Basement Window Types

Slider Basement Windows

This is a very common style of basement window that slides open horizontally from either left or right. Depending on the size of this window, it could be used for emergency exit. This is also known as a horizontal single-hung window.

Casement / Crank Basement Windows

These basement windows come in either 1 panel or 2 panel designs and hinge from either the left or right of the window. Many windows of this style have a crank handle to easily open the window from the inside.

Awning Basement Windows

This style of window hinges at the top and the window panel goes outward from the house. Perfect for allowing airflow into your basement with protection on a rainy day.

Hopper Basement Windows

The Hopper Basement Window hinges at the bottom and typically hinges inward into the basement. Great for allowing a little extra airflow and light into the basement.

Glass Block Basement Windows

Typically used for basement windows in bathrooms and showers, the Glass Block basement window allows light in with added security and privacy. This window does not open.

Fixed Basement Windows

This basement window does not open, hinge, or slide. Like Glass Block Windows, it is fixed in place and does not allow for means of egress.

Single Hung Basement Windows

Another very popular style of basement window is the Single Hung window. These windows have 2 panels, one is stationary, and the other slides up and down vertically.

Double Hung Basement Windows

This basement window consists of 2 panels that both independently slide horizontally or vertically creating an opening on both sides of the window.
