The 7 Musts for a Window Well Cover
Click on the images to see more…
The frame must have at least 7 support pieces
If there are less then 7 pieces then you will not have enough support and you will get dents in the expanded metal.
Square tubing for main supports
Angle iron or flat strap should NOT be used!! Square tubing has a great surface area for expanded metal to lay on and be welded on. With square tubing you also have 4 sides to get strong welds on.
Expanded metal top (diamond shape opening are 1 5/8 inches by 5/8 of a inch)
If the expanded metal has larger openings then it becomes weaker because the crosses are further away (example a tall tree will sway in the wind but a short stump will be solid). If the expanded metal has smaller openings then the thickness becomes smaller and therefore weaker. The expanded metal also allows for airflow. If you seal in your window well you crate a humid environment which causes more damage.
Every cut point on expanded metal welded to the frame
With every cut piece of the expanded metal is welded to the frame which will make the cover stronger and eliminates sharp edges.
Fabricated by certified welder
There are no legal certifications to make window well covers so make sure your covers are fabricated by a certified welder.
Powder coating is the best finish that can be put on metal to protect against rust and scratching. This is highly recommended to prolong the life of your window well covers.
Security locks provide peace of mind. They allow the occupant to get out while keeping anyone on the outside from getting in.
