What is a VELUX Skylight?
VELUX skylights are a glass window you install in your roof. These unique ceiling windows allow natural light to shine through the top of your house and into a room. Just like a regular window, a direct connection between the ceiling and outdoors is required for this type of installation.
VELUX skylights are slightly different to your standard skylight installation. VELUX skylights are available with manual, electronic or solar operation. The benefit of this brand of skylight is that it’s incredibly durable and can withstand the harsh Australian weather conditions – rain, hail or shine!
Features of VELUX skylights:
- Windows come in various sizes
- Deck or curb mounted installations
- Electronic windows come with a remote to open and close it
