Enlightened Spaces is available for you in the VELUX product program.
Take advantage of our 60 years of experience and the complete solution

EXTERIOR HEAT CONTROL – The best protection for heat gain is an
exterior awning that stops the heat before it hits the glass and
penetrates to the room.

skylight. That is why we have been offering prefabricated VELUX
flashing systems for most roof materials for more than 50 years.

Velux Flashing Systems – Bring on the Rain
Like water off a duck’s back, VELUX flashing systems are designed to
shed water without relying on sealants that can break down over time.
VELUX roof windows and skylights use flashing kits that are specific
to roof pitch and roofing material. With proper VELUX flashing type
and correct installation, the VELUX flashing is guaranteed against
leaks for 10 years.
The unique construction of VELUX flashings ensures safe drainage of
rainwater coming from the roof above the skylight, providing complete
weathertightness and preventing leaks. VELUX flashings blend in well
on most roofs because the roofing material covers the flashing top and
sides and because of their neutral color.
VELUX flashings are compatible with virtually any type of roofing
material, from standard covers such as shingles, shakes, standing seam
metal and tile to corrugated sheeting or even thatch.
VELUX undertakes some of the world’s most severe artificial rain and
wind tests to ensure that all products perform to the very highest
Skylights Can Help Reduce Condensation in the Home.
Ventilation is a big step in the fight against condensation. That’s
why VELUX builds roof windows and skylights with several exclusive
features that can help your house breathe easier.
VELUX roof windows and ventilating skylights can be opened with manual
or electric controls to release the warm, moist air within a home.
FRESH AIR CIRCULATION EVEN WHEN THEY’RE CLOSED
VELUX roof windows and the fixed skylight Model FSF feature an
exclusive ventilation flap that allows air to enter and hot, moist air
to escape. This unique flap can be left open year-round to provide air
WOOD SASH AND FRAME HELP INSULATE
All VELUX roof windows and skylights are constructed with quality
wood, not metal or vinyl. Wood is an excellent natural insulator
because it does not conduct heat like metal or vinyl.
ENERGY EFFICIENT GLASS
VELUX roof windows and skylights are available with Low-E insulated
glass. Low-E keeps the interior glass pane warmer to lessen the chance
of condensation forming.
GASKET SYSTEM DRAINS CONDENSATION
Should condensation occur, our skylights are even equipped with an
exclusive gasket system that aids drainage of condensation to the
