Nothing transforms a space like natural light and fresh air. The beauty it brings into your surroundings is a quality that no artificial light source can imitate.
Providing 30% more light than vertical windows and enhanced air circulation,VELUX® Roof Windows and Skylights deliver a constant source of natural elements to your home. But they do more than just let light in.
Because of their unique overhead position, they bring light to life. They transform the room. It looks more spacious. Brighter. Lighter. There is a sparkle in the space that wasn’t there before.
So add VELUX® Roof Windows and Skylights to your space and let the light into your home. After all, that light traveled millions of miles to get here. The least you can do is let it in.
Skylights and Windows
Windows are designed to allow maximum light into a room and for ventilation. Choice of window finish, such as wood or white polyurethane can make roof windows the focal point of a room.
For roofs opening out onto a terrace Velux have designed an ATS Roof Terrace System allowing easy walk through.
Choice of window will depend upon the size and shape of your roof and the design of the loft living space.
A shallow pitched roof can require longer VELUX® skylights in order to achieve fuller views.
Steeply pitching roofs may allow balcony systems such as the VELUX® ABS ‘Cabrio’ which opens out to create a small balcony with integral railings.
Steeper roof pitches would make opening skylights a heavy task, so Velux windows can be given spring assistance.
Many roof windows are also designed to act as emergency escape hatches.
Flat and felt roofs can be brought to life with a tubular tunnel skylight.
The flat roof is either designed with a deep ceiling or the window is elevated within a tunnel. Natural light enters directly or reflects off the tunnel sides to illuminate the entire room.
VELUX® Window Technology
Heat insulation, frame and window strength, and weather protection are important aspects of window panes and finishes.
All timber VELUX® roof windows have a TOPfinish™, this is a multi-applied clear varnish for internal surfaces.
VELUX® pane technology is designed to optimize heat insulation. Panes are AA fire rates and meet “U” value requirements. A choice of glazing options is available.
