Skylight and Sun Tunnel Information
Basic Information:
  • Leakproof: Today, as for over 60 years, VELUX skylights, roof windows and sun tunnels are built to be leakproof. Like water off a duck's back, VELUX flashing systems are designed to shed water without relying on sealants that can break down over time.
  • The VELUX Promise: When you decide to use VELUX roof windows or skylights, you are assured that our dedication to providing exemplary products and services will not end with the completion of that project. Or the next. VELUX stands behind their products with a promise of lasting service. Their warranty covers 20 years on insulated glass seal, 10 years on the skylight or Sun Tunnel, and 5 years on blinds, controls and electronics.
  • VELUX Tempered and Laminated glazings: Offer three times more protection against solar heat gain. Resists condensation twice as long as clear glass. Protects interiors by reflecting the vast majority of the sun's fade-causing rays.
Flashing Systems:
VELUX offers a variety of flashing systems to work with almost any roofing material. Click here to determine which flashing is right for you.
The addition of blinds can add comfort by controlling light and temperature levels. Blinds provide an energy efficient solution for privacy, glare reduction from direct sunlight, room darkening and reduction of heat gain or loss. Blinds can be operated by control rods or electric controls. Click here to review the available blind styles.
Glass Glazing Options:
VELUX utilizes the latest technology in producing their own insulated glass to ensure that it meets the highest efficiency standards. Both Tempered (formerly called Comfort Glass)  and Laminated (formerly called ComfortPlus Glazing)  ensure that VELUX products provide unparalleled protection against heat gain and heat loss, fading and condensation. Both glasses are also superior to plastic because they are more energy efficient, more durable, and reduce external noises (rain). Also, unlike plastic they will not discolor, leak or allow drafts.
