Strategy and goals
Designing sustainable products is our core business. The key drivers are healthy and sustainable buildings offering more daylight, more fresh air and nearly-zero energy consumption. VELUX windows and accessories are carefully designed to minimise heat loss and make the most of solar heat gain through the windows.
2016 saw the introduction of new, sustainable products and partnerships that pave the way for innovative solutions:
- Launch of VELUX Smart Ventilation heat-recovery units that improve indoor comfort by constantly renewing indoor air with minimum heat loss. Smart Ventilation ensures constant air change while offering 75% heat recovery
- Development of the new VELUX Active product range in cooperation with French NetAtmo, known for its award-winning atmospheric monitoring systems. VELUX Active products are designed to improve energy efficiency, indoor comfort, health and well-being through smart controls that automatically operate roof windows, blinds, shutters, etc. according to a range of atmospheric parameters. Operated via a mobile app and compatible with the Apple HomeKit platform, VELUX Active also monitors parameters like CO2 and humidity indoors to optimise the indoor climate.
We have expanded our contribution to more daylight, more fresh air and nearly-zero energy consumption through the launch of VELUX Smart Ventilation, which allows end-users to minimise heat loss even more.
We will launch the VELUX Active product range in 2017.
