Offering unobstructed views and maximum daylight.
July 2021, VELUX®announces its new range of glass rooflights for flat roofs; a new generation of innovative and highly competitive flat roof windows with a minimalistic glass-to-edge design, joining the existing portfolio of VELUX domes.
For the past 80 years, the VELUX Group has created better indoor environments by bringing daylight and fresh air into homes and other buildings all over the world. Adapting to the ever-changing needs of homeowners, VELUX is now launching a flat glass rooflight and a curved glass rooflight with a minimalistic and modern design. The unique and innovative rooflights provide undisrupted views of the sky while promising even more daylight and are a desirable statement piece for any contemporary home.
A unique new design of flat roof windows
The new glass rooflights, fixed or electrically-vented, have a unique, glass-to-edge design which allow for 52% more daylight to enter the home compared to the previous generation of flat roof windows. Anti-heat and blackout blinds can be discreetly placed in the base unit construction between the lower pane and outer glass, so as not to compromise on daylight, design or views up to the sky when not in use.
“Our new glass rooflights are designed to give people more of what they love in their homes: comfort, energy efficiency, maximum daylight, and fresh air. With more daylight, better indoor comfort, and seamless design, homeowners can bring more of the outside into their homes.” explains Scott Leeder, Market Director for VELUX Company Ltd.
Key benefits for homeowners
Ideal for flat roof renovations and new build projects alike, the glass rooflights are a worthwhile investment for homeowners looking for a state-of-the-art finish to their home. With a hidden sash and slim frame, the rooflights achieve a modern aesthetic when installed. The curved glass rooflight also offers a clear view and drainage with the unique CurveTech design.
The new generation of VELUX glass rooflights have excellent energy performance and optimal thermal insulation thanks to the ThermoTechnologyTM EPS insulation and low placement of the glazing unit. Compatible with VELUX ACTIVE with NETATMO and VELUX App Control, smart home integration and control becomes effortless. In addition, the design has superb sound reduction thanks to the double and triple-glazing options available which creates a quieter indoor climate.
The rooflights offer several important safety features. The laminated glass on the inside can resist significant breakage attempts and the outer glass is toughened making the roof window resilient, even in the harshest weather conditions.
Key benefits for installers
The rooflights come with a 10-year warranty, offering robust quality and ease to handle for installers. Enhanced installation features include:
- Insert nuts for safe and hassle-free crane lifting to the roof
- Pre-drilled holes and one torx size for all screws to save time
- Solar-powered accessories without wires
- Built-in motor and pre-paired wall switch and rain sensor for the electric variant
- Pre-manufactured interior linings for a seamless finish inside the home
- VELUX Rewards can be claimed on all flat roof windows, visit velux.co.uk/rewards for more information.
