Window Well Grate


Apologies if this is the right forum for this.
Here's some question I have:

I have a narrow driveway that runs between houses, where I park my car. There are basement window wells on the driveway, covered with grates.
Because the space is limited when I park my car one of the wheels ends up on on of the grates. Yesterday I took a look at the grate and in appears to be bent downwards. I don't know if my car causes this or that's been like that before for some other reason, but anyway I started wondering. Where does one get a grate like that ? I seached home depot inventory and found nothing.

And a question. Have anybody come acrosse some kind of heavy duty grates that would hold the weight ?

I would look for an iron works around you, and have a grate custom made. I'm not to sure if they make grates to support a car.

Make sure those windows aren't away of egress. Because that would be bad if somebody had to escape through a basement window and there was a car sitting on top of the grate.
