In 1941, entrepreneur and inventor Villum Kann Rasmussen came up with an idea that would transform dark attics into liveable spaces full of daylight and fresh air.
His first roof window was patented in 1942. He came up with a distinctive name that brought out the key benefits of his solution: ‘VE’, short for ventilation and ‘LUX’, latin for light - VELUX.
Within a few decades, Villum Kann Rasmussen and his team had opened up the roofs of homes and workplaces all over Europe and America, making the VELUX brand a household name synonymous with functional, high-quality design.
VELUX fixed skylights are perfect for visually expanding areas such as hallways, stairwells, and other closed-in, dark spaces that can be transformed with daylight and sky views. It provides an economical choice in creating a spacious home that is filled with natural light.
Silicon dioxide makes Neat® glass exceptionally smooth. In fact, it's much smoother than ordinary glass so water disperses evenly (sheets off), and evaporates quickly, greatly reducing water spotting. Reduce unwanted outside noise by up to 25% less than a standard double pane glass, and up to 50% less than a plastic skylight.
The No Leak Skylight carries a 10-year installation warranty, plus 20 years on glass, 10 years on product, and 5 years on blinds and controls.
Available in stock in sizes CO4, CO6 and CO8.
