Are These Wells Egress-Code Compliant?

The short answer is yes. Our heavy-duty window well series is created with IRC building codes in mind. Fire escape window wells are required in basement bedrooms by local building codes to provide emergency egress.

This is valid for every living space or bedroom you have in your basement. In this case, your window well should not only provide sufficient light and ventilation for your basement but also provide an escape route for a fully grown adult.

Do I Need a Ladder for My Deep Window Well?

Egress ladders are required by IRC building regulations for any window well that is over 44” inches deep. So, if you have a 72” or deeper well, you must install one.

Metal Egress LadderWe offer two models that are 100% compatible with our heavy-duty window wells. Hook-over ladders are secured by hooks at the top lip of the well and bolted to its wall. They come in 3 to 8 steps – for wells with depth up to 108”.

Bolt-on egress ladders are bolted directly to the window well with the hardware provided in the packaging. They also come in 3 to 8-step varieties. Please refer to our egress window well ladder page for more information on sizing and compatibility.

Do I Need a Cover for my Deep Well?

Building code regulations do not mandate covering the window well. However, when you have a large and deep window well, we recommend installing a heavy-duty window well cover for safety purposes. The risk of injuries is significantly higher. Therefore, we strongly recommend that you combine your well with a plastic or metal window well cover.
