We make excellent covers. These serve as maintenance and safety products so that nothing gets into that hole. But these aren’t the regular cheap-looking plastic ones you get at the big box stores. Instead, these are sleek, modern, and darn good-looking!

Our bubble and atrium dome window well covers are made from quality crystal-clear polycarbonate, which will not become yellow when exposed to the sun. The plastic in the cover alone has a 20 plus year longevity. The material is practically “unbreakable” and guarantees the basement safety and its intact looks over time.

One of our best sellers is the Super Slant cover. The model combines a perfectly clear glass-like top and the durable metal sides of a metal grate. The sides are made from aluminum to guarantee the durability of the product. Moreover, this cover is durable and lightweight and keeps constant fresh airflow to the basement.
