Every room used for the purpose of sleeping requires a direct opening to the outdoors, to allow for emergency escape and rescue. Therefore, unless you have a walkout basement, you will need to include some form of egress for each sleeping room in a basement.
Many municipalities are now requiring proper emergency exit from the basement and proper emergency entry by firemen and other rescue workers in the event of a basement fire. So not only will your new Boman Kemp Basement Egress Window System beautify your home by allowing natural light into your basement, it will also provide an excellent way to meet your local basement egress window requirements!
