What’s the safest glass for my skylight?
Building codes state that laminated glass should be used for skylights installed out of reach (usually above eight feet). VELUX recommends our Clean, Quiet, and Safe glass, which comes standard on many of our skylights. It’s not only the safest glass we offer, it also stays cleaner longer and reduces noise by up to 25% compared to other standard double-paned glass.
Is there a way to control the amount of light from the skylight?
Absolutely! VELUX offers over 60 different blind options so you can control the amount of light coming in, as well as the style and color that fits best with your porch or sunroom.
How do I clean the outside glass on my skylight?
With our VELUX Clean, Quiet, and Safe glass, your skylight will do the work for you! Any debris that lands on the outside of your skylight will be broken down by our Neat glass coating and washed away the next time it rains.
How do I keep bugs from flying through my skylight and into my sunroom?
With VELUX venting skylights, you don’t have to do a thing to keep bugs from flying through your skylight. Our venting skylights either come with an insect screen or the option to add one to your order so the pesky critters stay out.
