Wellcraft Egress Systems
Wellcraft Basement Egress Systems from the Tapco Group meet code requirements for escape routes in case of fire. According to the International Residential Code, an egress well and window must be installed in basement living spaces and each basement-level bedroom. While egress systems deliver enhanced safety, they also brighten basements with clean design and sunlight. Wellcraft’s 6700 egress well can even accommodate windows up to 5 ft. wide. With two or three such windows, open-space basements become lively, more comfortable spaces. Egress systems are a requirement for both newly finished basements and remodels, and the most innovative systems offer families a fast, reliable emergency exit while helping to beautify basements. Adding a Wellcraft Egress System to an existing home is an easy installation for both professional remodelers and do-it-yourself enthusiasts, and the project can usually be completed in a single day.

STEP Warmfloor Radiant Heating
The STEP Warmfloor radiant heating solution is designed to be the ultimate in comfort and versatility. With an emphasis on safety and efficiency, STEP Warmfloor is ideal for warming your cold floors or heating your entire house. The system uses an extremely durable and thin (only 3/64-in.) heating element designed to operate on 24 volts AC or DC, and can be connected to alternative energy sources, such as wind or solar power. The heating elements are self-regulating and use less and less electricity as they warm up. This self-regulating technology means the STEP Warmfloor elements cannot overheat and provide one of the most efficient radiant heating elements available. The system is approved for use with almost any floor covering including natural stone, ceramic and porcelain tiles, hardwood and laminates, resilient and carpet. And, because the heating element can be placed directly below most floor coverings, installation is easy. STEP Warmfloor is also available for snow melting and roof deicing applications.
