VELUX® Roof Windows
Manufactured from high performance materials, VELUX® roof windows have long been popular due to their quality, durability, appearance, and practicality. When compared to some other brands, VELUX products have continued to impress. With an extensive choice, this was enhanced in 2014 with the launch of the VELUX New Generation range.
Whether you are considering a loft conversion in your home, or a new build extension, VELUX roof windows provide an excellent choice due to their energy efficiency and natural light capture capabilities.
With ample styles available, VELUX windows can be supplied in a full range of sizes from a small skylight upwards. These windows are designed with slimmer frames to enhance the glazed area, allowing more natural daylight to flood into any loft or roof space. Should you wish to control the light entering a room through a roof installed window, VELUX roof windows can be fitted with purpose made blinds from an exciting collection of colours as well as themed pictorial blinds for children’s rooms.
