In the event of a fire, it is vital to have more than one way out. REDDCO Inc., a proud supplier of REDI-EXIT Fire Egress Systems, provides egress windows and egress window wells to homes, apartments, and businesses to ensure that individuals and families are safe from being trapped during a smoke or fire emergency. Our company recognizes the requirements of the International Residential Code (IRC) and maintains those standards in all of our products. Both our merchandise and our expertise will help to instill in you a new sense of safety.
REDDCO Inc. proudly manufactures egress windows and egress window wells to assure an alternative way out of any building if a commonly used exit is blocked during an emergency. Our windows are easy to use at any age as they can be opened with the push of a simple release knob. They also all meet IRC dimension requirements. The clear opening is at least 20 inches wide by 24 inches high, with a minimum net clear opening of 5.7 square feet, or 5 square feet for ground floor windows. The window sills are no more than 44 inches above the floor, with 42 inches as the target height.
Our egress window styles include the following:

Egress Window Wells
Egress window wells also function as emergency exits. They are used to hold back the soil around basement windows while allowing natural light and ventilation into the basement. We supply our egress window wells in sturdy materials such as galvanized steel, fiberglass, polyethylene plastic, and vinyl. Like our egress windows, they all meet IRC dimension requirements. Our window wells have both a horizontal projection and vertical width of 36 inches minimum, for a minimum surface area of 9 square feet. Our ladders, which are required for window wells over 44 inches deep, encroach into the well up to a 6 inch maximum. Ladder rungs are no more than 18 inches apart, are at least 12 inches wide, and project away from the wall between 3 and 6 inches.
Some of our popular window well products are as follows:

Egress Code Requirements for the State of Massachusetts
The IRC states that finished basements and bedrooms must have two ways out, namely the typical basement steps to the first-floor exit and an egress window or door in the case of an emergency. This ensures that occupants can safely escape and that emergency response teams can enter. In addition to following the IRC, Massachusetts establishments must meet the requirements of the “Massachusetts State Building Code CMR 780 3603.10.4.”
