Description

What is the minimum window size for egress?

It must be at least 5.7 sq. ft., which is at least 20 inches wide by 24 inches high, with an opening no higher than 44 inches from the floor.

Our sturdy one-piece galvanized steel egress ladders are a necessity for window wells over 36 inches deep.

All rungs are 12 inches apart, 16 inches wide, and the uprights are 12 inches apart. Ladders for concrete/brick are intended to fit an 8 inches ledge.

The ladders are easy to install. As a homeowner, you can make it your next DYI project. To install the egress window ladder, hook it over the lip of the well on the side of the window opening. If desired, attach the ladder to the well with stainless steel screws for additional stability.
