Velux has been manufacturing reasonably-priced, quality skylight products for over sixty years. This experience has allowed Velux to offer a variety of products that are specifically designed to increase light output while providing minimal heat loss. When combined with other green solutions, skylight installations are a great way to reduce your energy consumption and save you money.
Here are some featured benefits from a Velux skylight:
Weather-tight flashings - An essential part to any skylight is weatherproofing. Velux offers prefabricated flashing systems that are compatible with most roofing materials.
Standard Glazing - Velux puts a glazing on each of its skylights, which reduces UV and heat in the Summer while keeping you warm in the Winter.
Interior Light Control - Additional blind systems allow you to control the amount of light that enters your room. This type of control reduces your dependence on artificial light, saving you money on your energy bill.
Glass Selection - Velux offers a variety of glass types for its skylights. The standard Tempered glass helps keep out UV rays while the Impact glass is ideal for hurricane-prone areas.
