Bilco Introduces Redesigned Window Well System

Enhanced Design Allows System to Fit Wider Applications

NEW HAVEN, CT/December 3, 2013 – The stakWEL® Egress Window Well system consists of modular units that simply stack and mate together to accommodate virtually any foundation depth. The Bilco Company is pleased to announce that system has been redesigned to now accommodate window openings up to 54” in width.


The newly redesigned Bilco stakWel® for windows up to 54 in. in width.

Previously, the stakWEL system and optional cover were restricted to only openings up to 48″ in width. With this new design, the system will now easily install over windows wider than 48″ or poured-in-place windows that are 48” in width and have an additional perimeter frame. The wider module width allows installers to simply anchor stakWEL modules directly to the concrete foundation, eliminating the extra work that is typically required to anchor to a steel window frame or buck. The built-in mounting flanges feature key holes for fast and easy installation and an optional cover is available to ensure that the well opening is protected and free of snow, leaves and debris.

The stakWEL®Window Well System can be used with both utility and egress windows and offers a maintenance-free alternative to builders and homeowners. The product meets building code (IRC 2012) requirements for emergency egress in finished basement areas. Its innovative design features a built-in grip/step that facilitates safe egress and eliminates the need for a costly and unsightly fixed ladder.

Constructed of corrosion-resistant high-density polyethylene, stakWEL® is impervious to soil and moisture conditions and will not rust, rot, or discolor. It comes in a neutral driftwood color and features a pebbled interior finish that will compliment the interior of any home.
