Center Pivot Window

We design windows for all types of buildings and all types of functions. See the complete selection of VELUX roof windows.


Easy to open, easy to use, easy to install

Put fresh air at your fingertips with a center-pivot VELUX roof window. A center-pivot roof window is easy to operate – even with furniture beneath. The innovative top control bar allows you to install the window lower than an equivalent top-hung operated roof window to get an excellent view while standing and when seated.
We recommend center-pivot windows if you have to, or wish to, place your window in a low position, for instance: in rooms with a low ceiling or where you’d like a better view of the surroundings below.

Benefits of a center-pivot roof window

Natural ventilation – with a closed window
Let fresh air into your home even when you are away or sleeping, without having to worry about security or bad weather. Pull the unique top control bar once and you will allow fresh, filtered air to enter through the ventilation flap.

Enjoy fresh, clean, filtered air
The built-in air filter improves the indoor climate by preventing dust and insects from entering your home. The filter is reusable and easy to clean.

Excellent energy efficiency

Excellent energy efficiency
Experience a more comfortable home and lower energy bills with VELUX ThermoTechnology™. Innovative use of high performance materials in the window construction provides excellent energy efficiency, insulation and an airtight seal. Look for the ThermoTechnology™ seal for your guarantee of excellent energy efficiency.

Insect Screens 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.

Security locks 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.

From our innovative KLR 200 remote control to our home automation integration kit, VELUX provides the most technologically advanced products in the skylight industry.

KLB 100 Battery backup
The KLB 100 Battery backup can be used for electrical operated skylights. The battery backup ensures that skylights can be closed and blinds raised in case of power failure.


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.

Energy efficiency
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.
