I recently purchased a house with a very large egress window well. The dimensions are 98" x 52"!

I have searched all of the local stores and no one has anything large enough to cover this safety hazard unless I am ready to pay nearly $1000 to have it custom built and shipped from out of state.

I want to cover it with something that will let the light through but is strong enough to hold a full grown man if he were to fall on it.

To make matters worse the well is right next to the patio so people will always be near it (not the best planning on the builders part).

Any ideas/suggestions/commentary would really be appreciated.

Thanks in advance for your help
