Flat Roof Skylights


The brilliantly simple flat roof skylight incorporates the Velux High-performance laminated glazing unit and an all-metal exterior frame.

The smooth exterior gives not only a lower profile on the roof, but also provides a “cool” daylighting solution by effectively blocking heat build up and UV rays.

Available in: Fixed, Manual Opening and Opening Solar Powered.
