The current IRC Code requires all custom fabricated Concrete, Brick, Stone, Block or Pressure Treated Wood, Egress Wells that are deeper than 44” high to have a ladder or steps to allow for easy exit during an emergency.
A Ladder should also be considered for wells less than 44” deep if small children might need to use the Egress Well in an emergency as even a 36” high Egress Well might prove to be a barrier that young children can’t get out of.
