Where there is light, there is life.

Natural light is fundamental to the quality of our lives and living environment.

More than any other element, light, with its many moods and variations, can help us make a house a home.

Not only does natural light create an atmosphere, it can actually alter the way we feel about living space in a positive way.

A better product, better technology, a better warranty, better living.

Leadership

We have a long history of leading the window industry.

As early as 1945 Villum Kann

Rasmussen invented and patented the pivot-hinge, and thus the goal of “making a skylight which in every respect is just as good as the best vertical window” had moved a long way toward fulfillment.

This next generation of skylights is being developed not because we are pushed by our competition, but to continue our long history of leading the skylight industry.

Many features of this next generation product are patented today, just like they were in 1945.

Denmark produced the first roof windows.

Code compliance

Standard VELUX skylights* meet the applicable requirements of the:

IBC (International Building Code)

IRC (International Residential Code)

IECC (International Energy Conservation Code)

In addition, VELUX electrical components are UL listed.

VELUX skylights* also meet or exceed the applicable requirements of Powersmart and the North

American Fenestration Standards 101/I.S.2/NAFS-02

AAMA/WDMA/CSA 101/I.S. 2/A440-05, and AAMA/

WDMA/CSA 101/I.S.2/A440-08 for windows, doors and skylights.

In addition, VELUX skylights* are ENERGY STAR® qualified in every region of the country.

Qualified products are extensively labeled for site verification of compliance with requirements.

Copper-clad products excluded.

8 VELUX

One of the most straightforward ways to meet the energy codes as a builder or as an architect while still designing bright, airy buildings is to use ENERGY STAR® qualified products.

Most VELUX products are ENERGY STAR® qualified in all 50 states, which means that they meet strict energy efficiency standards set by the Department of Energy (DOE) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ENERGY STAR® fenestration products must have their U-factor and Solar Heat Gain

Coefficient tested and certified by the National

Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) in order to qualify.

By specifying or using ENERGY STAR® products, architects and builders can use more windows and skylights, bring more daylight inside and create more attractive buildings and more livable spaces while still meeting the local energy codes economically.

In warmer climates, there is great potential for lighting energy savings using emerging control technologies in combination with more effective daylighting products like VELUX skylights and

SUN TUNNEL™ skylights.

The possibilities of light

Function

Planning for enough natural light is important for the functionality of a home, but skylights offer many other benefits for our living spaces.

Drama

We all take great pride in our homes. We like to make sure they’re well presented, functional, and comfortable to live in. That’s where light can play such an important role.

Used properly, it can create drama in a space.

This in turn helps to make property more desirable and can have a substantial impact in any room.

Balance

A perfect example is how carefully positioned skylights can help bring harmony to a home.

Positioning skylights above windows opens up the space and reduces glare. The room is now functional, flexible and relaxing.

Ventilation

An electric venting skylight will open to produce a “passive air conditioner.” Through the chimney or exhaust effect they create, the warm air is drawn up through the venting skylight, providing a cooling effect and fresh air throughout the house.

Privacy

Homes are being built closer to one another and the balance of providing sufficient natural light and privacy has become an issue. That’s why 65% of homebuyers* request light from above through skylights in their bathroom, a room where privacy and light is of the utmost importance.

Superior LoE3 glass

Advanced LoE3 coating provides more daylight and better heat control for year-round comfort and energy savings.

Pre-finished frame and sashes

Factory pre-finished white frames and sashes provide for a high quality finish that eliminates the need for secondary high cost trips by a painter.

Solar blinds

These unique blinds use the sun to recharge themselves, so that you can enjoy the convenience of an electric blind without any wiring to install.

Electric skylights

Our premium electric skylights are packed with features that make them the most convenient skylight option.

With no additional wiring, an electric interior blind can be added to electric skylights. All controlled by a self programming RF remote

Since there is no need to build a drywall shaft, the VELUX SUN

TUNNEL™ skylight easily and inexpensively delivers natural light to areas of the home you never thought possible.

Homes are being built closer to one another and the balance of providing sufficient natural light and privacy has become an issue. That’s why 65%* of homebuyers request light from above through skylights in their bathroom, a room where privacy and light is of the utmost importance.

Skylights cut down the need for electric lighting naturally. Using daylight not only reduces energy costs and consumption, but also reduces the demand for unsustainable power that is currently challenging the health of the world’s environment.

Daylight is the essential element that transforms conventional rooms into the splendid spaces that add value and quality to your home and your life. And nothing brings in daylight like a

VELUX skylight.

See the potential for light possibilities

Most of us are looking for homes with a lot of light, because we require 2-3 times more light to see by age 60 as we did in our twenties. Skylights help balance the light in any room, reducing glare and transforming living areas into more open, safer spaces.

When choosing a skylight, consider the brand that delivers the best-engineered skylights and flashing in the building industry. Through rigorous research and testing, we have developed skylights that are engineered not to leak.

Whether it’s in the privacy of a master bath or in a social area like the kitchen,

VELUX skylights bring the best of the outdoors inside with you.

Choose the ideal product category.

Electric venting skylights

Overhead installations that need natural ventilation, especially kitchens and baths.

Manual venting skylights

In-reach or overhead installations, not requiring escape and rescue, where natural ventilation and manual operation is desired.

Roof windows In-reach installations requiring emergency escape and rescue capabilities such as above-garage bonus rooms and finished attics.

Fixed skylights

Installations where ventilation is not desired, but where a view to the outside would still be beneficial.

SUN TUNNEL™ skylights

Small spaces where natural daylight is the only requirement, or where a traditional skylight shaft length would be more than 4 feet.

3

Identify your ceiling style and optimal size and configuration.

Your ceiling style and framing configuration determines how your skylight shaft can be constructed. The skylight shaft can have a major impact on the way daylight is delivered and on the architectural drama of your room.

Several sizes are available that fit perfectly between trusses. Since trusses typically cannot be cut, the effect of a wider skylight can be achieved by combining two smaller skylights together using VELUX combi-flashing. (For flashing kits please refer to page 37.)

Testing data notes

a) Production samples structurally tested and labeled in accordance with one or more of:

AAMA/WDMA/CSA 101/I.S.2/A440, ICC-ES Acceptance Criteria AC16 or AC17, TAS201, 202, and 203; OSHA regulations; various ASTM methods. b) Thermal and optical performance data are determined for skylights at 20 degree slope, and verified in accordance with NFRC procedures (where applicable) by accredited entities.

Most VELUX products are listed in the NFRC Certified Products Directory, and carry appropriate labels in accordance with NFRC’s certification program. NFRC ID: VEL-N-xxx c) Most variants have achieved WDMA Hallmark certification under No. 426-H, and/or ATI-ES recognition under report CCRR-0104, and CCRR-0134.

In addition, Florida and TDI have listed most variants in their product evaluation/approval systems, and the FCM is pending Miami-Dade approval.

NOTICE: ALL GLASS MAY BE SUBJECT TO UNEXPECTED AND SPONTANEOUS

BREAKAGE in rare circumstances due to imperfections in the glass that are undetectable during the manufacturing and inspection process by the manufacturer of the glass and

VELUX.

VELUX America Inc. offers the choice of laminated or tempered glass skylights. Miami-

Dade glass, impact glass and comfortplus glass are all types of laminated glass. Comfort glass is a type of tempered glass. Laminated glass is a combination of two or more glass sheets with one or more interlayers of plastic (PVB). In case of breakage, the interlayer is designed to hold the fragments together. Tempered glass does not contain an interlayer to hold the fragments together. Instead, tempered glass is designed to break into small, pebble-like pieces. When tempered glass breaks, pieces of glass come loose and may strike an individual.

CONSULT LOCAL REGULATIONS AND/OR BUILDING MATERIAL CONSULTANTS TO

DETERMINE WHICH TYPE OF GLASS IS RIGHT FOR YOU OR IF LAMINATED GLASS OR

GLASS RETENTION SCREENING IS REQUIRED IN YOUR APPLICATION.
