All of our venting skylights are pre-equipped with insect screens, but for the roof windows, we offer optional insect screens that allow you to open the roof window and get fresh air inside without letting the bugs in.
Have all your meals with your family – without any uninvited guests, even with the windows open with a VELUX insect screen. And whenever the screen is not needed, simply roll it up in the aluminum casing. It can be combined with all types of VELUX blinds.
We attach great importance to your security and safety
VELUX offers a range of products and accessories with the objective of deterring entrance through the roof window beyond the general safety level. For example, the present range of standard VELUX roof windows can easily be fitted with a safety lock made of steel. You can fit this lock in the frame yourself.
When the safety device is locked, it is not possible to open the sash, but the ventilation function of the window will still work.
Our new blind collection can help turn an ordinary room into something special. With over 100 colors and pattern choices available, you can design your space to reflect your personality.
Controlling your environment
Five out of ten consumers want light control on skylights. One out of ten have it. See how easy it is to control the light by adding a blind to your VELUX skylight.
Not only does natural light create drama, it actually alters the way we feel about living space in a positive way. VELUX skylights can help dramatize any room in your home
A perfect example is how carefully positioned skylights can help bring harmony to a home. Positioning skylights above windows opens up the space and reduces glare. The room is now functional, flexible and relaxing.
Homes are being built closer to one another and the balance of providing sufficient natural light and privacy has become an issue. That’s why 65% of home buyers request light from above through skylights in their bathroom, a room where privacy and light is of the utmost importance.
The addition of blinds can increase the overall energy efficiency of your skylight by 45%. In the summer on high heat/sun days, close the blinds to reduce potential solar heat gain. In the winter, on cold nights, close your blinds to provide an extra layer of thermal insulation to keep warm air indoors.
Types of blinds
This double pleated or flat blind can convert day into night, blocking even the brightest sunlight, which makes it ideal for rooms that require total room darkening, such as bedrooms. The blind can be either manually or solar powered and therefore does not require wiring at installation. Simply snap into place and operate with an included keypad remote.
No longer is direct sunlight an issue. The VELUX light filtering blind softens and diffuses the light that will enter your room. Perfect for rooms where diffused light is desired such as kitchens and living rooms. Offers both protection and good looks.
The venetian blinds features make operation simple and convenient, with a control mechanism that allows you to position the blinds at any point on the window. Improved designs give you control over both the amount and direction of light, making it perfect for any room where light control and aesthetics are important.
