Double Main Support
Our exclusive double main support is the backbone of our cover. It runs left to right flush along the building and gives the cover it primary strength. Making this double thick is another extra step we take to make our covers better than the competition. That’s two full layers of thick anodized aluminum that sandwich the polycarbonate surface material. This method increases the strength and provides a channel for the water to run off away from the house.
Custom Aluminum Profiles
Anodizing is a process whereby aluminum is treated with a special clear surface coating which further protects it from discoloration and corrosion. We take this extra step so that our covers hold up better over years of outdoor exposure. Moreover, anodized aluminum has a more finished appearance than off the shelf aluminum.
All Riveted Construction
Our window well covers are fastened together with heavy duty aluminum rivets. Unlike nuts and bolts which can come loose, our rivets give the covers higher strength and a more finished appearance. We use extra wide 1/4” industrial rivets through our main support for the highest possible hold strength. All rivets are made with aluminum to prevent rust.
Lexan Surface Material
Lexan was developed by GE and is used in almost every major industry on earth. NASA regularly uses LEXAN on many components of the Space Shuttle. It can withstand heavy impact without cracking. Best of all, it’s UV Stable which means it can handle the suns strong UV rays without discoloring. It is also translucent allowing 98% of light to pass through.
Extra Wide Cross Supports
Our window well covers are constructed using extra wide aluminum cross supports for increased strength. Each leg of these cross supports is a full 1.5 inches wide to match the width of our main support. This simply makes our cover stronger and more durable.
Stainless Steel Clips
Our heavy-duty stainless-steel clips are used with the clip down method of attaching the cover to the well. These clips are positioned around the perimeter of the cover and push over the lip of the well. This enables the cover to hold tight and not move or shift. While our competitors use “off the shelf” clips our clips are made specially for us so they are more effective with holding the cover on tight. With clips the cover can still be removed from the outside by firming pulling up. Our clips will not rust or corrode and are fastened to the cover with heavy duty aluminum rivets.
Smart Lock System
Our smart lock window well locking system allows you to lock the window well cover down from inside for added security. It prevents anyone from removing the cover from the outside the home. Our system, which meets all of the IRC code guidelines, is designed with a single pin which releases much quicker than other systems on the market. Since window wells are a common point of entry for home break-ins, locks are an important consideration for you well cover order.
