What is a Velux Window?
A Velux window is essentially a window made by the manufacturer VELUX. Since VELUX began producing windows more than 70 years ago, their windows have become an icon for domestic and commercial properties all around the world.
Velux windows are interesting because unlike traditional windows which are fitted into walls, Velux windows are designed exclusively for installation into roofing. They are a great way of adding light and air to a roof conversion etc.
VELUX offers a complete system of roof windows, to suit a wide variety of different needs, including:
White Painted, Polyurethane or Pine Windows – The popular choices that are suitable for most standard window types
Electric and Solar Power Windows – Perfect for situations where windows are difficult to reach
Flat Roof Windows – A flat roof doesn’t mean you can’t add light to your home
Conservation Roof Windows – If you live in a period building that is subject to conservation restrictions, these are designed to replicate the original windows
Sun Tunnels – Perfect for hallways, or areas where it’s not possible to add windows but you want more than lamps
Balconies – Ideal if you are looking to merge indoors with outdoors, these fully opening windows are a great Velux Roof Window.
Safety – These are laminated for extra strength
Noise Reduction – Ideal if you live near a busy road, or want to minimise the sound of rain hitting the window
Enhanced Noise Reduction – Whilst minimising noise, this one is also great for thermal insulation, with an extra external coating that prevents condensation
Energy Efficient – With an anti-dew coating, condensation is prevented from building up on the outer window, this window is triple glazed with a laminated inner pane
Opaque – Suitable for rooms that require a little extra privacy, such as bathrooms
Enhanced Security – For complete peace of mind, this window offers Class P4A resistance against burglaries.
Manual – The most common choice, Manual Windows feature a control bar typically at the top for convenience
Electric – Perfect for areas that are difficult to reach, Electric Windows are operated with a control pad that is fully programmable. Also, ideal if you want more control even when you are not home
Solar Powered – Similar in theory to Electric, this is operated with a control pad, however, it is not powered by your mains electrics, reducing the need for wiring as well as your energy bill
We also offer a wide range of complementary products and accessories for installation and the ongoing maintenance of your windows.
