Emergency Escape Ladder For Window Wells
We all hope emergencies won’t happen. But shouldn’t you have a plan in place, just in case? Let yourself relax with the peace of mind of knowing you’ve planned ahead for a safer way out. Our emergency escape ladders meet all Illinois building code requirements, and with blind rivets, won’t tear fabric or scratch skin when they’re in use. Plus, all our custom window well covers come with a lock that opens only from the inside, so you won’t be risking your home or its contents. We’ll work with you to custom-design a ladder that’s just right for your space. Solid aluminum steps offer a secure 1-½ inch tread depth, with 12” between treads, making climbing easy for adults or children. At Handy Manny, we absolutely hope you’ll never have to use our basement window emergency escape ladders… but we also know you’ll rest easy knowing they’re there!
