Chicago Custom Egress Window Systems Installation

Egress windows are partially underground windows, which are large enough to use as an exit in case of an emergency. These are typically found in finished basements and are often required by building ordinances. Egress windows not only work as an emergency exit from the basement, but also have the added benefit of providing light to an otherwise dark space.

American Thermal Window carries a large selection of egress windows from many of the best window manufacturers in the industry. American Thermal Window offers three different styles of egress windows and each style has many different options to choose from:

Double Hung Windows

Double hung Windows consist of two sashes with one placed above the other. The window opens by pulling the bottom sash up.

Sliding Windows

Sliding windows also have two sashes placed side-by-side and open by sliding one sash to the side.


Casement Windows

Casement windows open out very similarly to a door by either a handle or a lever. This type of window is the one most often recommended for egress windows.
