Fixed Skylight (Pitched or Flat Roof)
Fixed Skylight windows are the easiest way to add natural light to your home. Fixed skylights can be used for pitched and flat roofs. The fixed skylights are available in up to 9 sizes to suit any shape or look you are after, with a beautiful white interior wood frame, which blends seamlessly into your white ceiling. Velux fixed skylight can block up to 75% of the heat typically transferred through other branded skylight windows and plain glass windows.
Manual Opening Skylight (Pitched or Flat Roof)
Manual Skylight windows are a simple skylight that is openable manually with a rod or extension rod or simply by hand, depending on the height of the skylight window.
The manual skylight and flat roof skylight are a great budget-friendly alternative to the electrical or solar models. The skylight is easily operable by hand, if it's within reach (such as on sloping ceilings) or via a control rod. However the manual powered skylight will not sensor any rainfall. In comparison the solar powered skylight and electrical skylight do, and therefore close themselves automatically.
Electric Opening Skylight (Pitched or Flat Roof)
Electric Skylight windows includes a power cable which is installed with the skylight window itself. This allows you to use your own energy to power your skylight or flat roof skylight. These are most often used when a home doesn't have sufficient sun exposure for a solar model. Your skylight installer should be able to show you where you can physically turn the skylight off whilst away for extended periods.
All Velux solar and electric skylights come with a remote, which allows you to open the skylight window with ease. The skylight also has a rain sensor built into the system, which allows you to feel at ease knowing your window will close automatically if it starts to rain.
Solar Powered Skylight (Pitched or Flat Roof)
Solar Skylight windows consist of a solar panel system which reduces energy consumption by 100% during the day. Channeling natural light throughout possibly every room in any building. Eco Sustainable House like to look at this specific skylight as an investment, rather than a liability. Thanks to their ability to help regulate the temperature in your home, the solar powered skylight is an asset for future energy savings on your bill.
Velux roof windows are made with laminated double glazing glass, giving them excellent sound and heat blocking attributes. Rain sensor is included as standard.
Roof Window (Pitched Only)
Roof Windows are an efficient way to utilise natural light, let the cool, fresh breeze into your home. Depending on which roof window you purchase, you can maneuver the roof window to allow a breeze to flow through your home effortlessly, while also venting out hot air. Each roof window has a white painted timber frame on the inside and grey aluminum for the roof exterior.
They are available in 5 different sizes for your attic, lofts, bedroom, or anywhere in your home that could do with more ventilation and light.
These state-of-the-art fixtures come in two different opening styles, for your unique needs. 'Velux Center Pivot Roof Window' is a center pivoting roof window for a easy short pull to create a 180º plane of movement. The 'Velux Dual Action Roof Window' is design to maximise your home's views, with the degree of opening depending on the pitch of the roof.
Sun Tunnels are ideal for hallways, walk-in wardrobes, pantries, toilets and other small areas without a direct source of natural light. For kitchens, living areas, bedrooms and bathrooms we recommend Velux skylight or roof window. These come with either a flexible or rigid shaft to suit most roof cavities.
