Egress Window (Custom Sized)


All of our egress windows are supplied by The Great Egress Co!

Are you turning your basement into a rental apartment? Ensure your new space meets the Ontario Building Code and order an egress window from Bavarian Windows.

The Ontario Building Code requires that every bedroom in a suite includes a window that can easily opened from the inside and provides an open space greater than 0.35 m2, so that the occupants can escape in case of a fire or other emergency. If you are renovating a basement suite to include a bedroom, there are further requirements for your egress windows.

Our egress windows are ready-made, affordable, and easy-to-purchase. They have been specifically designed by Bavarian Windows to meet the required Ontario Building Codes in Waterloo and Guelph — making it simple for homeowners to complete their renovation projects.
