Clever engineering has resulted in a larger pane area and improved insulation while keeping the same outer dimensions for easy replacement and renovation of old roof windows.


Comprehensive use of high performance materials in the window construction have improved insulation and air tightness.


A home with excellent energy balance

The new generation of VELUX roof windows contribute positively to the energy balance of your home - even on a overcast day

Energy balance

Illustration: Energy balance    
A window's energy balance is the difference between the amount of heat from sunlight that the window transfers to your home and the amount of heat that escapes through the window. Ideally, the heat loss should be low, while heat gain is high

Our windows always pass the ultimative test

In our test department, products are continuously exposed to a variety of tests to
ensure that our windows can withstand wind and water exposure, even under
extreme weather conditions such as hurricanes

Nobody tests the way
VELUX does

One reason why VELUX roof windows are so reliable is that we put them through every imaginable test before they have to pass the ultimate test - many years of use in your home

All testing work is completed
at our VELUX testing centre

Here each individual roof window is inspected. We make sure the window is properly sealed and insulated, in addition to the final-checking for flaws in the materials assembly
​Standard or recessed installation
VELUX New Generation roof windows offer two installation heights, standard or recessed.
The recessed installation provides a sleek, streamlined appearance, sitting 40 mm deeper in the roof structure, and provides architects with greater design flexibility.
For optimum insulation effect, the VELUX Group recommends recessed installations. When installed with the appropriate VELUX insulation collar, recessed installations results in saving more energy.
We offer a broad variety of flashings for different type of roof tiles. Remember to consult the instruction manual supplied with your flashing prior to setting out the roof for installation.
