Bilco is celebrating the 75th anniversary of its Classic Series steel basement door by introducing a new and improved model that features a patented gas spring lift assistance design and improved primer finish.

In addition to this new design, Bilco has partnered with Sherwin-Williams to introduce a new primer finish for the product. The finish features low VOC emissions and superior adhesion to enhance the life of the product. The Classic Series Steel Basement Door will be available in the early spring of 2010.

“Bilco’s steel basement doors have enjoyed great popularity over the years in areas where below-grade basements are a prevalent home feature,” said Robert Lyons, Jr., President of The Bilco Company. “We are excited to offer this new design on the anniversary of the product’s inception and anticipate that homeowners will enjoy the added features and many years of service offered by this next generation of basement door.”

Invented by the Company’s founder George W. Lyons, Sr. 75 years ago, Bilco’s basement doors have developed a reputation among homeowners and builders for unequaled design and workmanship. Classic Series doors feature heavy-gauge steel construction and an overlapping flanged design that sheds water and prevents binding due to ice and snow, permitting all-season operation and lasting service.

Bilco basement doors offer code-compliant emergency egress in finished basement areas. They meet International Residential Code (IRC 2009) standards, which require a means of emergency escape from inhabited basements, and are available in a wide range of sizes to accommodate virtually any basement areaway.

Bilco – an ISO 9001 certified company – offers a line of basement doors and egress window wells that improve the look and function of basement areas, as well as a complete line of commercial access products.
