VELUX Roof Windows

Velux Skylights provide an abundance of natural light, brightening up any space and reducing the need for artificial lighting during the day.

This not only enhances aesthetics but also saves on energy costs and maximises the benefits of natural light in the home.

Benefits of VELUX Skylights

  • Blocks 99% of harmful UV rays

  • Noise reduction factor of 32 decibels

  • Double layer of Low-E3 coating to increase thermal performance

  • 10 year warranty on insulated glass seal

  • Passed Hailstone Tests by withstanding cricket ball sized hailstones simulated at storm-like speeds

NEAT™ Photocatalytic Coating 

The Silicone Dioxide/Titanium Dioxide coating on VELUX skylights reacts with the sun’s UV rays to decompose surface organic dirt before rinsing away with the next shower of rain, thereby reducing cleaning frequency. 

In addition, the coating makes the glass surface smoother, so water disperses evenly, sheets off and evaporates quickly. This minimises water spotting on the pane.

How Does a VELUX Skylight Work

VELUX Skylights are typically installed on the roof, positioned to face the sky. This placement enables them to harness sunlight directly from above, utilising the roof's slope and orientation to optimise daylight, maximising the amount of daylight that illuminates the room.

Our VELUX Skylights Fit Most Roof Profiles 

VELUX skylights and flashings systems are designed to fit seamlessly with various roof profiles, ensuring a perfect match for different types of roofs, including pitched roofs, flat roofs, and even unconventional roof shapes.

This versatility allows exisiting and new homeowners and builders to enjoy the benefits of VELUX skylights regardless of their roof design.

Is security an issue with VELUX Skylights

There is a normally far easier and safer point of entry, with most crimes being opportunistic.
For those who are concerned, we can advise options to increase its security.

Proper Installation is essential. Using qualified Velux installers ensures skylights are fitted correctly, following manufacturer guidelines and industry standards.

This guarantees a secure, watertight, and structurally sound installation, minimising the risk of leaks, damage, or performance issues in the future.
