Fire Exit Escape Hatch (Optional)

Black metal grate with escape hatchAluminum 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 hatch placement is determined by the placement of your escape ladder and/or the way your window opens.

An escape hatch is usually unnecessary on metal window wells, 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.

    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!)

    A Cut Above! These egress covers are of exceptional quality; I’m so glad that I did not choose a lesser option from another company. Also excellent deliver service; the egress covers were well packed and the delivery service was prompt and professional. As a Wisconsin realtor I’ll definitely recommend Window Well Experts to future clients.
