Panorama view

Top-hung roof windows open outwards and are hinged from the top of the window to allow more headroom and more expansive panoramic views.

Ideal if the bottom handle can be easily reached to operate.

Ventilation without having to open a window.

VELUX have cleverly integrated a ventilation flap that will allow fresh air through a insect & dust filter when the window is closed – Ideal for cold and rainy days or nights and help create a healthy living environment.

VELUX system patented ThermoTechnologyTM

Max isolation

Two specific materials have been used by VELUX for the construction of the roof windows in order to secure a sufficiently low U-value and an excellent energy efficiency.

Expanded polystyrene and additional insulation elements have been added to the window sash and frame and created to visually blend into VELUX roof windows appearance. In addition to this thermally modified timber and heat treated wood in an oven at over 175°C, have been added as reinforcement in the sash and frame of our Polyurethane roof windows.
