Basement Photo Friday – Bulkhead Bonanza

Apr 24, 2015

Bulkheads or Cellar Doors – which term do you use?  No matter the term used, this door and entry way into the basement can be a safety hazard as well an avenue for water, moisture and critters too.

Today’s bulkhead cellar doors are not like those from years ago.  These newer designed and crafted bulkheads are:

  • Easy to Operate: Torsion-Cam lift assistance provides smooth, easy, one-hand operation and prevents the doors from slamming closed.
  • Durable: Baked-on Sherwin Williams primer provides a durable base for finish paint – paint any color you want!
  • Weather-tight:  Sheds water, keeps area dry and free of debris. Flanged construction sheds water and prevents binding due to ice and snow.
  • Secure:  Slide bolt lock and internal mounting flanges make your home safe and secure. Optional keyed lock kit available for exterior access.
  • Rugged: Heavy gauge steel and sturdy concealed hinges, protected from the weather ensure all-season operation and lasting service.
  • Code-Compliant:  Satisfies IRC 2012 Building code requirements for emergency egress in finished basement areas.
