Escape™ Windows, Window Wells, & Pour in Place E-Z Bucks

 

Escape™ Window

Escape Windows act as a normal single hung window for venting purposes, and offer an in-swing feature to open the entire frame in case of emergency, and are available in two versions. One as a standard egress window with fiberglass window with an .032 stainless steel security screen that is unbelievable tuff. Both Escape windows have a one hand operation for quick exit. Lift the multi-point lock lever to release the swing frame and pull. That's it! No sash locks to fumble with, no screens to remove, just raise the lever, pull and exit. this is also an easy way to clean the outboard panes, swing the frame in and wash the exterior, no sashes to tilt or balance, just swing it in and the unit supports itself. The Escape Window frames, and sashes are all vinyl, and fusion welded. Most glass options are available, including krypton and argon filling of low-e insulated units, tints, obscure, grids and more.

The Astro Egress Window Well meets IRC 2000 requirements. The well has a ladder molded into the back side for easy exit. The Astro Egress Window Well is available in 4 designer colors to blend with virtually any landscape scheme.

Astro E-Z Buck

Astro E-Z bucks are vinyl with a .085 wall thickness and filled with lumber. The E-Z buck is for new construction and made to put in place at the time the basement walls are poured. When the forms are removed the window then simply slides into the buck and stopped with an expanded pvc interior stop supplied with the E-Z buck. The vinyl clad wood E-Z buck will then accept lag bolts from the Astro Polyethylene Window Well to make attachment a breeze. No drilling into the concrete wall to fasten the well. Just line up the well with the E-Z buck and run your lag bolts into the lumber. Each well should be topped off with a hinged poly carbonate cover to stop debris, people or animals from falling into the well.

Thermal Hinged Cover

The thermal hinged cover will add thermal performance to the basement window. The semi-clear poly carbonate will allow plenty of light to penetrate and fill the basement with light. The hinged cover will stop debris from entering the well, and also keep people and animals from accidentally falling into the well. Sloped for rain and snow runoff, so you won't be trapped inside. Full aluminum perimeter frame for added strength. Fully opens to meet egress and will support 44 lbs. per square foot to meet IRC 2000 requirements. Heavy duty mounting bracket attaches to house for secure installation.
