The HERR egress window is an innovative approach to the age old basement bedroom issue.
This solution will revolutionize how home owners and contractors meet egress requirements in basement bedrooms. The HERR egress window design has been carefully considered and field tested over the past several years.
Living spaces need egress windows to provide an emergency exit incase of fire or other life endangering situations.
There are certain locations in structures where egress windows are legally required. Safety code requires egress for basement living areas including bedrooms.
If you are doing a basement renovation or contemplating existing basement bedrooms, we strongly recommend ensuring you do have windows that meet the egress standards.
HERR designs and manufactures frames custom to each project.
We have specific guidelines and calculations for determining egress based on our design.
To determine egress standards and pricing, use our egress window calculator.

Since the HERR egress window was conceived, it has been field tested for several years.
We have worked through several designs, using a variety of different materials and slight variations. The model we have released to the public has the best performance and every aspect has been carefully scrutinized for peak performance.
Our window is designed with assured safety, allowing you to feel safe and secure in your home.
We can typically meet egress without having to cut concrete in an existing opening.
Prior to the design of the HERR egress window, the rough opening would have to be increased significantly and with increased costs for material, labour to cut the concrete, engineering, the average project budget would have increased astronomically.
Typically we can achieve egress conforming size with as little as 17″ height. This is a vast improvement from the current industry standard for an egress slider which is 60″ x 30″.
Currently the most similar egress window to our product on the market is the 'hopper style' egress window. This design has come under scrutiny from fire safety personnel for its potential to be bumped and closed, shutting the emergency exit and trapping the individual. With the HERR egress design there is no worry for that scenario as our opening provides a secure exit without risking potential closure.
We ship across North America making our windows accessible to anyone looking to incorporate our egress. Inquire to accommodate your shipping arrangement.
