What are the Common Types of Velux Skylights

VELUX is a well-known brand offering a wide range of skylights to suit different roofs and buildings.  In this blog post, we will compare the VELUX skylight range to help you make an informed decision when selecting a skylight for your home or office.  

  1. VELUX Fixed Skylights

VELUX Fixed Skylights or Non-Openable Skylights are designed to provide maximum light with a minimal frame.  These skylights come in various sizes and shapes, including rectangular, square, and circular (Solar Tube).  They are perfect for areas where ventilation is not required, such as hallways, foyers, or walk-in closets.

  1. VELUX Manual Skylights

VELUX Manual Skylights are another option for those who want more control over their Skylight.  With a simple hand crank or wind handle, you can easily open and close your Skylight and control the ventilation of your living space or room.  If a high ceiling positions your Skylight out of reach, VELUX also offers extension handles so you can still open and close your Skylight whenever required.  These skylights are perfect for rooms where you want to enjoy natural light and fresh air, such as kitchens, lounges or alfresco areas.   


  1. VELUX Solar Skylights

VELUX Solar Skylights are an eco-friendly option that runs on solar power.  They come with a remote control that allows you to open and close the Skylight, control the amount of light and ventilation entering your room, and adjust the blinds or shades.  VELUX Solar Skylights include an internally mounted rain sensor which, when exposed to the elements and rain is detected, will automatically close the Skylight if it is already open.   These skylights are perfect for those who want to reduce their carbon footprint while enjoying natural light and fresh air. 


  1. VELUX Pitched or Flat Roof Skylights

VELUX offers Skylights to suit both Pitch and Flat roof lines in all model types, Fixed, Manual or Solar Powered, as well as to suit Steel and Tiled roofs. 


In conclusion, VELUX skylights offer various options to suit different needs and preferences.  Whether you want more control over your Skylight, eco-friendly options, or a skylight that suits your flat or pitched roof, VELUX has a solution.  Consider your requirements, budget, and the features of each range to make an informed decision when selecting a VELUX skylight.
