Virtually all towns require a ladder in at least one egress size window well. Also, any bedroom in a basement must have an egress size window well with a ladder in all municipalities.
Window well safety ladders are available in the following lengths:
4-Step Egress Escape Ladder is designed for use in Basement Window Wells 54 to 66 inches in depth
3-Step Egress Escape Ladder is designed for use in Basement Window Wells 42 to 54 inches in depth
