Fire Exit Escape Hatch

Aluminum grates are ideal for egress and larger size window wells. Their lightweight assures that your family can escape from a hazardous situation in your basement. It also allows for municipal code compliance, yet they are safe to walk on and hold 400 pounds. We can make a grate to suit any size well. Larger size wells need an escape hatch to ensure that the smallest member of your family can escape easily.

The hatch does have a prop-up bar for ease of use. The placement of the hatch is determined by the placement of your escape ladder and/or the way your window opens.

On metal window wells, an escape hatch is usually unnecessary, as the grates are light enough to push aside. We make the grates to your well size, so if your well is a non-standard size or misshapen, we can accommodate your needs like no one else!

    What a great fit!! You couldn’t have done a better job if you had manufactured it here on site, right on the patio! The installation looks clean, so it appears to be a truly professional design and installation.

  2. Craig C.

    They just came in and are fantastic. Below are photos of one of mine installed and one of me (6’0 and 235lb) standing on it. Fantastic product, very impressed.

    We love our new window well grate cover!

  4. Debra Z.

    Window Well used to be covered by ugly chicken wire – this is strong, attractive and keeps little critters from falling into the well, earring through the screen and falling into the basement (it CAN happen!)

    What a pleasant surprise was the whole thing. The guys are knowing what they are doing. I had no idea for the measurement details but I handled it with a single phone call. Everything really fit perfectly to the well.

    I’m really impressed with the knowledge those guys have about their products. I didn’t expect only thru the phone and a few emails to receive a perfectly fitted basement grate cover. Highly recommend!
