[NO TABLE] The Bright Idea Difference - Designing the Best Egress Window
Reduced Install Time
By following Bright Idea process, installation can be completed in less than one day. Traditional egress window installation involves more excavation, more backfill and more compaction over multiple days.
Minimal Foundation Impact
Patented ExoFrame design requires less concrete cutting because 3 sides of an existing buck can be left intact. Wood frame solutions require removal of up to 30% more concrete from the foundation.
Superior Structural Integrity
A 4x4 steel ExoFrame supports 3000 lb. load at the center point & 6000 lbs. of overall load. Traditional wood frame solutions do not rival the superior load bearing qualities of ExoFrame.
Impact-resistant glass with multiple locking points. Varies based upon quality of window.
Less Excavation Effort
Dig (and compact) 30-50% less dirt for well excavation, easily fasten to foundation with the only well design to feature interior flanges. Conventional exterior flange requires digging more dirt around well, poses greater settling risk to foundation, and involves unpleasant effort of hanging upside down to attach well to foundation.
Premium Window & Hardware
High quality European-style tilt & turn window with adjustable German hardware which can be fitted to shorter household members. You get what you pay for.
ExoFrame provides up to 30% more glass area relative to foundation cut.
Less glass relative to foundation cut because of wood framing.
Everything you need in one complete easy-to-install kit. Multiple trips to hardware store to collect materials.
Superior Environmental Seal
Patented no-mess butyl gasket process eliminates sealing issues from traditional methods and requires minimal use of caulk. Caulk exposed to elements will inevitably fail, no single caulk works best for all surfaces because they have different expansion, contraction and adhesive characteristics.
ExoFrame requires no maintenance and is termite-proof. Regular maintenance required to seal & preserve typical wood-frame solutions from elements.
Works with nearly any foundation type. Different solutions for different types of foundation.
Industry Leading Warranty
ExoFrame & well covers have a lifetime warranty, window wells come with a 30 year warranty, windows come with a 10 year warranty. Product warranty typically limited to 1 year, read the fine print.
