Hinged window well covers allow much more effortless emergency escape for larger covers and make basement ventilation much easier. In addition, it’s simple to prop the cover open with the included prop up bar.
One of the most popular solutions to preventing mold and improving your basement’s air quality is installing a hinged egress cover. Unlike stationary covers, our egress-sized covers can be manufactured to be secured to the wall of your home with hinges. The installation allows the cover to be easily lifted and secured open without actually dismounting it from the window well.
Thanks to the maneuverability of the large hinged covers, you can use a prop-up bar to ventilate your basement throughout the day. If you desire, you can add a fastener or catch to your house to hold the cover open at a 90-degree angle.
