Product Benefits

These are a few of the many benefits aluminum forms have to offer:

Greater strength and durability through proprietary designed structural components.

Significant Quality - For example over 600 inches of high quality robotic welding on a 36” x 96” form.

Increased versatility with a full line of fillers, attachments, corners, specialty forming, ties and accessories.

Aluminum 1/4” thick corner gussets are used to strengthen the corners of the forms as well as to minimize concrete build-up.

Easy accommodation for tall walls, since our forms are easily stackable.

Our forms are cost efficient. With reasonable care, cleaning, and maintenance, 2,500 pours or more are not unusual.

Inset end rails add strength to the form and additional face sheet support without unsightly lines to the vertical form joints.

Precise uses a serrated channel bracing on all forms providing a better gripping and climbing surface.

Perfect for residential, commercial, precast concrete, and many other applications.

Heat treated ring bushings prevent elongation and are fully zinc coated to minimize rusting.

Form Manufacturing

Welding

Precise Forms has chosen the Mig welding system to weld our forms. We do not just begin welding and weld the form in its entirety, but a specific weld pattern is used to dissipate as much heat as possible. With this pattern welding method, the amount of distortion is minimized.

We use argon gas for a shield to purify the welding procedure to ensure clean welds.

Robotic Welding

Precise Forms was the pioneer introducing robotic welding to the aluminum form industry and has dedicated a large portion of our facility to this procedure. Robotic welding has enabled Precise to lead the industry in production capabilities and quality of weld. Precise Forms has chosen to go with a more ductile welding wire to help absorb the vibration caused by pouring concrete which helps prevent weld failure.

Endrail

The Precise endrail is 3/8” x 2” flat bar and we have chosen a 6061 T6 511 alloy for this structural member. With the integrity of the smooth aluminum form, this thickness more than supports the end of the form. The hole pattern that is used on the siderail is duplicated in the endrail to allow stacking as well as laying the forms down. The endrail is extruded to receive the inset face sheet. By notching the endrails you protect the face sheet from abuse and prevents the face sheet from curling which extents the life of the form. Some of our competitors will inset their siderail in an attempt to protect the face sheet. There is no advantage in doing so and in fact can create problems in the event the form has to undergo repair.

Bushing

The steel ring bushing is fully heat treated to 21-27 on the Rockwell “C” scale. Heat treating prolongs the lifespan of the forming system by preventing elongation of the bushing. Preventing elongation also assists in maintaining accurate wall thicknesses which is required by some construction sectors such as precasting. Once the bushing is at the designed hardness, it is then sent out to be fully zinc coated to minimize rusting.

Siderail – 6061 T6 511 Alloy

The Precise 2” siderail is specifically designed to withstand the loads placed on it during the pouring procedure. The rail is flat on the inside so a good butt weld can be achieved with our brace. It is convex on the outside to release concrete easily. With the convex side rail the contractor will experience a double contact point from each side rail thus eliminating offsets that a single contact siderail with a protruding face sheet can produce.

Bracing

The 1” channel brace is used for many hole patterns but was specifically designed for the 8” on center hole pattern. There is a rule of structural design that must be maintained, you can have only so many inches of face sheet unsupported. This, coupled with wedge clearance on the pins, dictates the size of the brace that can be used.

Precise has designed this brace with many considerations of structural integrity. The sides of the brace are directly opposing the loads it is subjected to and the point of moment on the brace is increased in thickness to resist the horizontal loads. The brace is 1 7/8” x 1” to allow welding over the top of the brace to the siderail. The thickness of the legs of the channel are increased for support and also to allow good weld penetration that will not blow through side walls. The exterior of the legs are serrated to allow a firm grip even in adverse conditions. We have chosen the 6061 T6 511 for its strength.

The 4” channel brace was designed with all the same criteria and a similar design as the 1” channel brace but for the 6-12” hole pattern.

The sides of the 4” channel are serrated for easier handling of the form. To add strength, an internal stiff back is added to the center of the brace. As with the 1” channel, the bottom of the legs are enlarged and combined with the .125 aluminum sheet, it ensures a solid base for deeper welds.

The 5.5” custom channel brace was designed with all the same criteria used on all our support components. It is extruded with 6061

T6 511 alloy aluminum. The sides of the 5.5” channel are serrated for easier handling of the form. To add strength, we have doubled the vertical support legs that create dramatically flatter walls. This is especially useful for projects where the concrete will be the finished interior surface on homes, offices or commercial buildings.

1” Channel 4” Channel 5.5” Channel

Face Sheet - .125 Smooth face sheet 5052 H38 alloy

The .125 is the only face sheet offered on Precise smooth forms. While some of our competitors have several different thicknesses, the result of thinner face sheets remain “pillow casing” (unsightly distortions in the concrete wall due to the facesheet stretching) and broken welds. With a thicker face sheet, Precise welds have a deeper penetration into the base material producing greater strength in the form. Our face sheet is purchased oversized and cut to size in our facility to ensure that the sheet is perfectly square.

Dominator System

The Dominator Forming System can be ganged or handset, like many other forming systems. The advantage is that the Dominator can be ganged without any additional hardware, therefore it is the best of both worlds in a single form. The Dominator Forming System provides an alternative to typical flat tie forming systems. The Dominator Forming System utilizes a taper tie system. With this form being 25% thicker than a standard flat tie form the form deflection and pillow casing is reduced, providing a smoother, flatter finished wall surface. The Dominator is 2 1/2” thick rather than a standard aluminum form at 2 1/8” thick, adding to the overall strength of the form.

The life of this form will out perform its nearest competitor. The Dominator receives very few hits with a hammer because the form locking device is separate from the form itself. The locking device is located at the back of the side rail. The load point of the tie system has been moved as far from the load as possible; 2 1/2” on the dominator as compared to a standard flat tie form of 13/16”. This creates less deflection, metal stress, and flatter walls. The Dominator’s design creates tighter joints preventing concrete from leaking between the forms which keeps the forms cleaner and reduces labor time.

When comparing the Dominator system to 24” wide plywood systems, you will find the performance of the Dominator to be superior on many levels. The accessory requirements are a minimum of 33% less than most plywood systems and the down time for refacing is a thing of the past. The aluminum form provides value when the form is to be sold or traded. With a simple maintenance program the

Dominator will provide many years of quality service with a reduced cost per pour.

Eliminator System

The Eliminator Forming System works in conjunction with the Dominator Forming System allowing the contractor to cast next to an existing building with only 2 3/4” of clearance. This allows the contractor to build more structures in a limited space or used as an alternative to cast one sided formed walls.

The Eliminator Forming System incorporates a specially designed connection section, or “W”, that forces the forms together and locks them into place without requiring access to the exterior of the wall. All of the work is done from the inside of the wall in both setting and stripping. This allows the forms to be used in low clearance situations as well as minimum space between buildings. It may also be placed on the end of a ganged form situation allowing the ganged section to be released from the interior of the building. This could possibly eliminate the need of exterior scaffolding or the need to remove exterior scaffolding from the ganged form section, allowing the entire gang section and scaffolding to be raised in a single section.

A continuous footing is not required in some applications with the Precise Fence Forms.

Simply pour pier pads where the columns are located and free span between columns.

The Precise Forms Fence Forming System is the ultimate solution to creating cast in place concrete fences.

Advantages and Capabilities:

*Greatly reduced labor cost.

*A crew of four can strip, set and pour 120 lineal feet in

five hours.

*The Precise Fence Form allows you to place and strip large

individual sections of fence forms at one time.

*In most instances the only footing required is at each

column.

*Decorative column caps can be cast and placed on site.

*Once the fence has cured simply paint or apply the

desired texture.

Gang Form System

The Precise Gang Forming System with the use of our gang form adapter allows you to turn standard aluminum concrete forms into gang forms. Gang forms allow you to set and strip large sections of walls in a fraction of the time.

New Forms with the Pour Ready Process

New Forms Untreated

“I am writing to let you know we appreciate the work you did on our new forms. The Precise “Pour Ready Process” for our new aluminum forms ended up being a better solution than I had expected.

At first I was doubtful because it just did not seem that something like that type of formula would really work. Well I was impressed at the results, despite the cost.

We had over 200 various sized forms pretreated with your formula and we are pleased to say it worked! Now we only formed with one side of the wall with the new forms and the other side of the wall with our old forms but again they appear to be working extremely well.

Thank you for handling the situation and helping us get our forms in working order so that we could stay as efficient and effective on our jobs without having to deal with untreated new forms. Lancaster Poured Walls is happy to recommend your “Pour

Ready Process” as it was done for us, because it worked! Feel free to let others know we’re pleased.”

Respectfully,

Single and Multi-family Housing

Our systems provide a nearly unmatched level of flexibility and range of options with shorter cycle times and lower total cost than traditional methods.

Ledger System

Ledger Forms can be created in a variety of ways. It can be incorporated into the form itself for quick construction of multiple homes of the same design or it can be attached as a cap allowing standard forms to be used expanding a sets versatility.

A pitched roof is easy to create. The Pitched Ledger System allows you to use standard forms and supports to create a sloped or pitched roof or can be built into the form itself similar to the

Ledger Form.

REDUCE CONSTRUCTION TIME:

With time having a costly effect on typical construction, a cast in place shell utilizing the Precise Forms aluminum forming system can save several days over typical wood or concrete masonry type construction. Under normal situations, one day is required to set and pour the exterior, interior walls and roof, and a halfday for form removal and job site clean up.

REDUCED LABOR:

Due to fewer materials placed on the job site, clutter will be reduced lowering site clean up time. An experienced wall crew can reduce construction time by several days over masonry and typical construction methods with the Precise Forms all aluminum forming system.

Shoring Post

Shoring Posts are used to support areas such as decks or steps.

They are often used in conjunction with Telescoping Beams when spanning a large area.

Interior Angle Slip Form

The Interior Angle Slip Form is designed to be easily stripped by allowing the form to slide down and out away from the wall. This provides additional clearance at the top of the wall preventing the form from binding or damaging the concrete deck when it is tilted out during stripping.

Telescoping Beam

Telescoping Beams are used on decking systems in conjunction with shoring posts to provide support for the deck.

Waler Channel Tube

The Waler Channel Tube is used to ensure that the entire structure remains perfectly square during setting and pouring. It helps reduce the amount of training required for workers as well as eliminates the labor of constantly double checking that the forms have not moved during setting or pouring.

Window Shutoff

Window Shutoffs are designed to provide a perfectly square window opening. They are easy to set and strip. The bottom shutoff has an access hatch that can be opened to allow the vibrator to consolidate the concrete under the opening and then can be pinned shut once vibration is complete.

Housing Steps

Multiple styles of steps can be created with the Precise Step

Forming System. Stairs may be traditional, freestanding, supported by the wall or customized to fit the contractors need.

The form design allows the tread form to be removed after the pour, while the concrete is still green, and the tread can be trowled or textured without having to remove all of the stair forms.

The form slides down and away from the concrete allowing easy stripping.

Monolithic Casting (5 Sided Casting)

Deck Adapter System

Precise Forms developed another labor saving method for the progressive Precaster. Make monolithic pours of a five sided box with the Precise Forms Deck Adapter system. This system allows the pouring of the walls and deck in a single pour. The deck system can be lifted into position and removed as a single unit. Once the deck plate is assembled, there is no need to break it down which allows multiple pours and saves labor expense to assemble the deck multiple times.

Water Infiltration Solution

Reduce the problem of water infiltration by creating the casting in a single pour. Monolithic pours are the most efficient way to produce castings if you can flip the casting over to strip the inside. With the addition of the Precise Forms Deck Adapter it is completed, in most cases, with the same forms used for wall construction set in the horizontal configuration.

Fast & Efficient

The fastest and most effiecient method of a monolithic five sided pour allows for accuracy and cost reduction when casting, therefore creating increased production and profits.

Dominator Precast

The Precise Forms Dominator System gets its name from the fact that it dominates any project with speed while producing a quality product. This system can be quickly hand set or gang formed for rapid setting and stripping without the need to add additional hardware.

The life of this form will out perform its nearest competitor. The Dominator receives very few hits with a hammer because the form locking device is separate from the form itself. The locking device is located at the back of the side rail. The load point of the tie system has been moved as far from the load as possible; 2 1/2” on the dominator as compared to a standard flat tie form of 13/16”. This creates less vertical deflection, metal fatigue, and flatter walls. The Dominator’s design creates tighter joints preventing concrete from leaking between the forms which keeps the forms cleaner and reduces labor time.

When comparing the Dominator system to 24” wide plywood systems, you will find the performance of the Dominator to be superior on many levels. The accessory requirements are a minimum of 33% less than most plywood systems and the down time for refacing is a thing of the past. The aluminum form provides value when the form is to be sold or traded. With a simple maintenance program the

Dominator will provide many years of quality service with a reduced cost per pour.

The system can be gang or handset much like any many other forming systems, therefore it is the best of both worlds in a single form.

This form is 2 1/2” thick rather than a standard aluminum form at 2 1/8” thick, adding to the overall strength of the form. The load point is 2 1/2” from the face rather than the typical 13/16” on the standard flat tie system.

Deck Lifting Ring

Precise Forms has designed the lifting system to work in both the setting and stripping procedure. The lifting rings are attached to a counter sunk bolt on the concrete side. Once the deck is in position and the rings are removed, the bolt seats in a position that allows for a smooth flat concrete deck. When the casting is flipped into the stripping position, the bolts project on the under side to allow for the connection of the lifting rings and one piece removal of the deck plate.

Corners and

Specialty Forms

37

Full VS. Standard (Nominal) Corners, Accessories, And Ties

The option is available to pour either a standard (nominal) wall thickness or a full dimension wall thickness. Each of these wall sizes demand a particular inside and outside corner, as well as wall ties. If you attempt to use a standard corner with a full tie or vise-versa, the corner you set will kink and be difficult to straighten. You can pour full walls with nominal corners by putting a spacer on the outside corner so the wall ties remain straight.

In measuring your inside corner, place the end of a tape measure on the outside face sheet and measure in to the 90° turn of the face sheet. The dimension will be either a 4 3/16” for a standard corner or 4” for a full inside corner. This same application will hold true for other forms and accessories which are affected by wall thickness such as outside corners, attachments, blockbacks, bulkheads, window bucks, and blockdowns.

Setting Inside Corners

When setting an inside corner it is important to always place the pin in properly. The tip of the pin should go from the inside corner into the form with the wedge on the form side. This allows for easier stripping with a single hammer blow to the pin. Improperly set corners may require a pin pusher to work the pin out of the tight space.

Textured Brick Inside Corner

Precise inside corners are extruded and wrapped with the brick pattern for greater strength and are available in a wide variety of sizes and patterns.

Haunch (Chamfer) Corner

Haunch corners are a standard for Precise Forms and can be manufactured to any specific size and design. Precise Forms can also produce Haunch corners for monolithic castings.

Radius Forms

To create a radius or curved concrete wall, you are not necessarily required to have curved forms. In many cases you can create a radius wall using standard aluminum forms and fillers.

Radius walls can be incorporated into any structure to create unique design features. Architects are no longer bound by the traditional old school thought of box concrete buildings. For those situations where a smooth curve is desired or required, Precise Forms is able to manufacture curved concrete forms from a 6” radius or larger.

Cap Forms

Cap forms come in a variety of heights and widths. They are a universal hole pattern allowing them to be used with both the 6-12 hole pattern and the 8” OC hole pattern but can be created with a 1” or 2” on center hole pattern as well. They provide extra height to any wall with minimal effort and expense.

Heavy Duty Laydown Form

Beams and Arches

A concrete beam is a load-bearing unit that can be used to carry both horizontal and vertical loads. In the past concrete beams were often hidden by some type of dropped ceiling. Today concrete beams are widely used in contemporary building construction as decorative features.

Pilasters

A pilaster is a projecting rectangle or half round column built into the face of the wall. Pilasters add additional strength to the wall while providing extra support for structural beams or trusses.

Pilasters can be combined with ornamental features or arches to provide additional strength as well as creative architectural designs.

Buttress

Buttress walls provide extra support for a wall by transferring horizontal pressure into vertical pressure onto the footing below.

Buttress walls can be buried under the earth or designed to be a decorative architectural design feature of the building.

Plywood Adapter

Plywood Adapters can be used when running pipes or electrical through a wall. Holes can be cut into the plywood providing a pass through and preventing damage to the aluminum form.

They also allow the easy creation of odd sized fillers.

Concrete arches have been used for centuries to create large open spaces in construction. With Precise Aluminum Concrete

Arch Forms the process has become much simplier.

Precise Forms can manufacture custom aluminum arch forms that incorporate decorative architectural features to improve the look of any structure.

Jump Fillers

Jump Fillers can be made 1” or 2” on center and help the contractor transition various elevations easily.

Jump Fillers can also be used as an adapter between the 8” OC hole pattern and the 6-12 hole pattern.

Buttress walls allow the contractor to build higher and thinner walls that support the same pressure while using less concrete.

EASI-WALL System

The EASI-WALL System provides a superior alternative to standard ICF construction. The ideal insulated wall has the insulating foam located in the center of the wall also known as a sandwich wall. This provides the ultimate in energy efficiency and comfort for the home owner. The EASI-WALL System developed by Precise Forms creates the insulated sandwich wall of the future that is easy to install and increases safety during the pouring procedure.

The EASI-WALL System will withstand the hydrostatic pressure developed when placing concrete. The support system provides unparalleled insulation security with as much as 8 feet of offset in concrete placement from side to side with little insulation movement. Now, with a single form setting, you can pour the entire wall with the insulation in place without fear of the insulation breaking or moving.

The Vent Buck holds a vent in place during the pour. It installs easily and quickly.

Surface control joints are attached to the facesheet of the form to create a relief joint.

They strip as the form is removed during the stripping process. Easy to relocate on the form, these aluminum joints are available in two sizes, 1/2” and 1”.

Cap Bracket

Cap Brackets are used in conjunction with lumber to extend the wall height. The cap bracket has a 90 degree angle used as a seat for the lumber and a pin attached that is locked down through the pin hole in the end rail of the form. This provides for the ability to pull out some of the potential bowing that can be inherent in lumber.

52

The Cap Bracket can also be used to create wood fillers to allow pipes or other objects to pass through the wall.

Application of Form Release Agent

When forms are unloaded it is best to lay them around the job site where they need to be set. While placing the forms, one individual should be responsible for applying form release agent to all of the forms before they are set. The release agent creates a positive barrier between the panel and the concrete which promotes a controlled reaction with the free lime in the concrete. This action provides a quick and clean release preventing concrete buildup. It is a good idea to use release agent on the back of the form every 3-4 pours. This will prevent concrete buildup on the braces. Your crew will be able to work faster saving labor, time, and money by keeping the forms consistently clean.

60 Gallon Spray Tank Assembly

The 60 gal. capacity model comes complete with gauges, hose, and spray wand. It is designed for pickups and form trucks. Other sizes are also available.

Proper Pin and Wedge Usage

1

2

Standard Pin

The wedge slot in a Precise Tapered Pin is milled, not swedged, for uniform quality. It is made of heat treated steel for greater strength.

Standard Wedge

Standard Wedges are used with Pins to lock forms together securely. The tapered design allows easy and secure locking.

3

Place the pin into the form with wedge slit vertical.

4

Slide the tie onto the pins.

Curved Wedge

Curved Wedges offer the ability to be used in stack form operations with less worry of vibrating out when the wedge is used in a horizontal position.

Pax Pin

The Pax Pin is a little longer than the standard pin and allows up to a 1/2” spacer to be used.

Set the second form into place.

Panel Clip

The Panel Clip is another option to loose hardware. This is an alternative to using a 2 piece loose hardware process without the cost of permanent attached hardware. It creates a positive lock with a one piece hardware product.

Place the wedge into the pin slot and tighten with a hammer.

Aluminum Base Tie Pin

The Aluminum Base Tie Pin is used for laydown applications.

Coil Bolt

The Coil Bolt is designed with large threads for extra speed and strength. They are available in lengths of 2” and 4”. Special lengths are available upon request.

Pin Keeper

1” Filler

Duplex Nail

The 2” Filler Pin is used in conjunction with the 2” filler form. Nail holes have been added to allow the pin to be used with 1” and 1

1/2” fillers as well.

Set & Lok

The Precise Forms Set & Lok offers the best of a fast and positive locking system. The Set & Lok can be used with our Retractable Long

Pin or the Captive Pin.

It offers a dramatic decrease in form setting time due to the fact that in most cases a 8’ or 9’ tall form only needs to have two per form and the remaining wall tie locations can be handled with the retractable long pin or the captive pin and not require a wedge except for the first three joints off of each corner. This greatly reduces the amount of loose hardware required. The form setter need only go to two spots to lock the form down.

As the name also defines, the other capability of the Set & Lok is to actually pull the two forms together thereby setting the form in position. Ideal for rapid form setting and stripping. The Set & Lok does not require special tools or lubrications for operation. A light spray of form release during setting will help keep it clean and operational. Available on 12” wide forms and larger.

1” Filler

Duplex Nail

When locked into the open position the

Set & Lok stays locked in place to allow easy stacking of the forms.

The pin of the Set & Lok rotates 90 degrees to allow the use of a standard pin from the other direction when necessary.

When locked into place, the Set & Lok holds the forms firmly together.

Used with 2” filler.

Used with 1 1/2” filler.

Drift Pin

The Drift Pin is used to align two panels when the holes do not line up perfectly. Ideal for closing up the wall or steps in the footing.

Aligner Clip

Used with 1” filler.

The Aligner Clip replaces the pin and wedge in a stack form situation. It eliminates concern of wedges falling out.

Double Slotted Pin

The sash is welded on all four corners to insure a rigid and accurate sash that matches perfectly with the frame construction. Anti-corrosive, dual brass roller assemblies allow finger tip control for opening and closing the sash and provides years of trouble free performance. Integral interlocking webbing on the sash and meeting rail insure a positive interlock in the center of the window further enhancing security and thermal performance.

Vinyl Sliding Basement Window Main Frame

The vinyl sliding basement main frame is constructed of rigid PVC hollow extrusion with a wall thickness ranging from .060” on the exterior walls to .045” on the interior walls. It provides an excellent thermal barrier against all types of climate conditions. Our high tech, four head welding line provides an all welded construction. This allows accurate product sizing, quality, and it guarantees a leak proof corner. Our unique heavy-duty dual wall exterior flange provides an aesthetically appealing exterior installed appearance.

Vinyl Sliding Basement Window Sill Riser

Constructed of rigid PVC extrusion with a wall thickness of .060”, the sill riser provides the basis for our aesthetically pleasing, equal light, glass panel design between the fixed and the sliding sash. The design utilizes a solid, snap fit leg construction to avoid shipping damage or loss. This design also allows for unobstructed drainage clearance under the sash panel.

Vinyl Sliding Basement Window Fixed Meeting Rail

The vinyl basement window fixed meeting rail is constructed of rigid PVC hollow extrusion with a wall thickness ranging from .060” on the exterior walls and .050” on the interior walls. It is then reinforced with a mullion stiffener which provides a very rigid center post that does not twist or deflect with larger size window openings. The vinyl basement window rail is attached to the main frame with four 2-1/2” long anti-corrosive stainless steel screws. It also contains an integral channel with a built in catch slot which receives the lock sweep mechanism enhancing security and thermal protection.

Vinyl Sliding Basement Window Glazing

An insulated glass package designed with a 3/4” overall thickness, utilizing the INTERCEPT spacer system, provides the ultimate in

“Warm Edge” spacer technology. The glass assembly is built in our own high-tech window manufacturing facility on the INTERCEPT

Roll Forming System from GED. We are pleased to provide our customers with the highest quality glazing on the market today. The main frame and sliding sash are glazed with a continuous bead of high quality silicone adhesive, which is applied by robots for accuracy and consistency.

Weather Stripping

To provide a thermal barrier against all climate conditions, the movable sash and the meeting rail are equipped with strips of fin seal weather stripping. The top and bottom sash rails and the interlocking edge of the meeting rail utilize a .200” high pile inserted on each style member. Virtually all potential draft points have been eliminated.

Optional Grid System (Muntin)

Precise Forms uses the INTERCEPT spacer system on all of its insulating glass units. This allows an optional grid system that prevents grid shifting or grids that don’t match up from one window to the next. As part of INTERCEPT’s exclusive manufacturing process, grids are made consistently to match precisely, and they’re uniquely locked in place. Plus, INTERCEPT spacers are specially recessed below the sight line. All you’ll ever see are beautiful windows, for years and years.

Window Well Rockwell

RockWell window wells help turn your basement into a retreat. Our window wells have a stone texture that truly looks and feels like real stone, adding great curb appeal and an aesthetically pleasing view from the inside out. Our wells allow for more natural light and ventilation into an otherwise dark & drab basement. They leave basement rooms feeling larger and more inviting.

Each of our window well options adheres to IRC 2009 Egress

Code standards. This means they meet or exceed dimensional and accessibility requirements to allow occupants out and rescue personnel in during an emergency. These standards apply to renovations of older homes as well as new homes. If you are finishing your basement or converting a storage room into a bedroom, it is required by law to make sure there is a direct exit from each inhabited room. Steps provide easy access out of basement window well

Installing your window wells will be easier than you might expect. They are made of the same strong, durable, light weight composite material used in the aviation industry. The single piece construction of our wells means no assembly is required. Just excavate the space around your window, lower the stone textured window well into position, bolt it to your foundation, and fill in any extra space with the displaced soil, no pea-gravel required.

Elite and Premier Series window wells are available with practical and stylish accessories.

Window Well Cover Rockwell

These covers are designed to keep out what you don’t want and let through what you do. Made of strong polycarbonate, they can withstand 500 pounds of weight - perfect for preventing family members and pets from accidentally falling in. They are also excellent for keeping out fallen leaves, snow, and UV rays as well as obscuring the view into your basement. These window well covers still allow natural light in and are easily opened from the inside for quick escape in the event of an emergency.

Our clear polycarbonate covers are available for both the Elite and Premier window wells. They are constructed of a 10 mm fluted polycarbonate material with UV light protection.

Window Well Grate Rockwell

These grates offer many of the same benefits as the polycarbonate covers while allowing ventilation and unobstructed natural light. They are just as strong and effective at preventing fall-ins without limiting airflow. The earth tone powder coating on these window well grates will fit in nicely with your landscaping, and, of course, they are easy to open from the inside during emergencies.

These safety grates are durable and will prevent members of your family from accidentally falling into the window well. They allow ventilation and will not obstruct the natural light from entering your basement. They are also easy to open for egress routes. The window well grates are powder coated with an earth tone color that will fit in with your home’s natural landscape. They are suitable for use with our Elite and Premier window wells.

Our grates are 73” x 42”. They are constructed of 1/2” metal tubing and angle iron. They can withstand 500 lbs.
