Ridgelights are mounted on a rail system that guarantees fast installation and a safe, economical building process. Ridgelight 5° creates the illusion of a glass roof with its discreet support beams. Ridgelight 5° can only be installed at a 5° pitch.
Similar to longlights, northlights are bands of VELUX Modular Skylights. The characteristic upright design is primarily targeted installations that are directed towards the northern hemisphere for soft and reflected lighting. Northlights are ideal for galleries and museums as well as schools, offices and industrial facilities, where direct glare is unwanted.
Northlight installations are applicable from 40-90° pitch.
Atrium roof glazing consists of multiple rows of ridgelights or longlights, supported only by structural beams, forming large glazed areas of identical looking venting and fixed units. Designing your building with atrium will help you benefit from all the functionalities offered by VELUX Modular Skylights, such as integrated chain actuators, blinds and low pitch. This comprehensive functionality allows your atrium to perform much better than most traditional roof glazing.
Installation of VELUX windows is easy, fast and reliable. We have developed a unique installation procedure that ensures the best possible connection to the roof and minimum energy loss.
Every installation product, from outside to inside, is designed to fit a wide range of roof windows and roof types to ensure correct and weather-tight installation.
For homes with bathrooms, hallways and other rooms with no daylight, we have developed the VELUX sun tunnel that leads daylight into the darkest spaces through a specially designed tunnel from roof to ceiling. Our sun tunnels are available in a number of designs for pitched or flat roofs.
During 2015, we launched a new generation of sun tunnels specially designed to allow even more daylight into the room for better comfort.
The VELUX INTEGRA product family comprises a wide range of electrically- and solar-powered roof windows and accessories for easy control of the indoor climate and high energy efficiency. Our solar powered windows require no wiring.
Intelligent controls enable roof windows to open and close automatically at pre-set times to create a pleasant indoor climate in sync with the rhythm of the day and the season. Built-in rain sensors ensure that the windows close if it starts to rain.
The INTEGRA control unit with touch screen and simple navigation has made it easier than ever to ensure a healthy and sustainable home.
We offer a complete series of roof windows for a wide range of building types and applications. The windows are designed to provide optimum daylight and comfort while using less energy. This is achieved by taking maximum advantage of the heat gain through the windows and by retaining heat inside the building with the new insulation design, VELUX Thermo Technology™.
Large window panes ensure maximum flow of daylight into the room, they open up to attractive views of the outdoors and they reduce the need for artificial lighting.
The ventilation flap lets in fresh air even when the window is closed. We have introduced a new feature to the ventilation flap − the VELUX balanced ventilation unit, which was developed in close cooperation with ventilation specialists from RENSON. The self-regulating unit ensures a constant flow of fresh air into the room and prevents draught by balancing the airflow through the flap. The unit can be fitted to existing roof windows.
VELUX blinds and roller shutters are essential elements in indoor climate control when it comes to daylight, heat intake and heat loss. The blinds and shutters come in manual, electrically- or solar-powered variants.
When blinds or shutters are rolled down on a cold winter night, heat loss can be reduced by up to 26%. On warm summer days, exterior roller shutters can block up to 92% of the heat from the outside, effectively protecting the building from overheating.
Our automatic blinds and shutters can be set to open and close automatically to maintain a good indoor climate, regardless of season and time of day. The solar-powered blinds and shutters require no external power supply.
In 2015, we added 20 new eco-certified fabrics to the existing 48 fabrics with Oeko-tex certificate, a voluntary label to control emissions and content of dangerous substances. We also launched a new blackout energy blind that provides total blackout and improved insulation.
We offer a comprehensive portfolio of windows for flat roofs with the same high standard of quality, comfort, durability and energy efficiency as our roof windows for pitched roofs.
The flat-roof product programme includes windows with and without opening function and a special smoke ventilation window that increases safety in case of fire. VELUX flat-roof windows come with an insulation pane that allows maximum daylight combined with excellent insulation properties.
In 2015, our existing dome roof light for flat roofs was launched in a new, completely flat variant in Europe. The new design caters not least to architects who want an alternative to the traditional domes, and they have welcomed the completely planar solution that gives the buildings a more minimalist and streamlined look.
The new flat-roof window was developed in the US, where it was also released first. The new window has the same high energy efficiency as the dome windows.
