Single or Double Slider Egress Window

Slider windows can be used as egress windows if the open portion of the window is large enough to meet the clear opening requirement of 3.8 square feet. Some companies sell windows that allow the pane to swing out as well but inspectors often don’t pass these. Many basements already have existing slider windows so simply replacing those with a single pane window will allow you to meet egress requirements.
