RANGE OF SKYLIGHT PRODUCTS
Because there is such a large range, it helps to divide the Velux models into the following categories:
Velux Skylights can be opened manually or by solar power or fixed (non-opening).
These three options are available for pitched or flat roofs. You can install solar powered skylights on roof pitches up to 60° and manually opening skylights and fixed or non-opening skylights on roofs from 0° to 90°.
The solar powered skylights attain sufficient charge during the day to operate 24/7 and remote control allows you to set and forget.
The rain sensor will automatically close the window in the event of rain. They do not require an electrician to install. These are also available in a hard-wired electrical version (requires an electrician and wiring).
Fixed non-opening skylights are the perfect replacement for old cracked or damaged acrylic domes.
Roof windows are ideal for bringing light and ventilation to attic conversions and loft bedrooms where you can easily reach the window.
Choose from centre pivot opening or dual action window (can open from the top or the side).
Centre pivot windows are suited to roofs from 15° to 90°, dual action up to 55°.
The interior of all Velux windows features a beautiful white painted pine sash and frame. Velux windows feature an innovative 180° reversible design to facilitate easy cleaning.
Manual and solar powered blinds fit Velux skylight and window models.
Blockout blinds reduce light by 100% and heat by 40% while Honeycomb blinds reduce light by up to 95% and heat by 60%. The simple click installation is just so easy.
Sun tunnels are ideal for bringing light into dark, awkward spaces such corridors, stairwells, and bathrooms.
They need to be installed on pitched roofs and you have a choice of rigid tunnel or a flexible tunnel (for those areas where obstructions in the roof cavity block the way).
You can choose from two types of double-glazing; High performance or Comfort.
High performance features laminated inner panes and toughened safety glass on the outer. The argon filled cavity and Low-E³ coating provides optimal thermal efficiency and light transmission.
High performance glazing blocks 99% of harmful UV radiation and 75% of radiant heat. High performance glazing is a building code requirement for skylights installed more than 3 metres above the ground.
Comfort double-glazing features toughened safety glass, an argon filled cavity and Low-E³ coating.
Comfort glazing blocks 95% of harmful UV radiation and 75% of radiant heat. Comfort glazing is generally between $50 and $100 cheaper than the High performance range.
Removable insect screens are available for all opening skylights and windows. We also supply the full range of Velux control rods, winder handles, and remote control panels.
