Brighten up your day

More natural light and fresh air

Put fresh air at your fingertips with a top hinged VELUX roof window. A top hinged roof window is easy to operate - even with furniture beneath. The innovative top control bar allows you to install the window lower than an equivalent bottom-operated window to get an excellent view while standing and when seated. 

We recommend top hinged windows if you have to, or wish to, place your window in a low position, for instance: in rooms with a low ceiling or where you’d like a better view of the surroundings below.


 

Watch the operation

  • Enjoy panoramic views - while increasing your energy efficiency and natural ventilation  

  • Convenient bottom handle for operation

  • Increase the amount of natural light in your rooms

    How to clean your window
    To clean the outer pane, rotate the sash 180 degrees. The sash must be secured in position by sliding the barrel bolt into the bushing at the bottom of the side frame. The air filter can be removed and washed with ordinary household cleaners. Fully rotate and secure the window in cleaning position, then remove the filter from the filter rail.
