ENGLISH: Directions for use
Use of the ventilation flap
To enjoy fresh air even when the window is fully closed, pull the control
bar lightly downwards to open the ventilation flap. The window will
remain locked, but air can enter the room through a built-in air filter
that keeps out dust, insects and driving snow.
Opening and closing the window
Pull the control bar once more to open the window. Friction springs in
the hinges allow the sash to be parked in partially open positions. The
window is closed by pushing upwards firmly on the control bar to lock
the sash and close the ventilation flap.
Cleaning the pane
Cleaning the exterior of the additional external pane: Rotate the sash
180 degrees and secure in position by pushing sash fitting forwards (1).
Cleaning between panes: Rotate the sash 180 degrees and secure in
position by pushing sash fitting forwards (1). Disengage clips on both
sash corners (2), allowing the additional external pane to be loosened.
Push the pane slightly backwards and disengage security fitting in
centre of sash (3).
Clean the pane with a soft, clean, lint-free cloth/chamois leather/nonabrasive sponge or a clean, non-metal window squeegee. Clean water
will normally be sufficient for cleaning the pane. Ordinary, non-abrasive
household cleaners can also be used. Soft water is best for cleaning
panes. Therefore, in hard-water areas add a small amount of detergent
to soften the water or wipe off all excess water after cleaning.

ENGLISH: Directions for use
Minimising condensation
Particularly in rooms with high levels of humidity, condensation can
form on the inner pane of the window. This can be minimised by fitting
a radiator directly below the window and by airing the room frequently.
Cleaning the air filter
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. (New filters are available from your
local VELUX sales company).
Maintenance of timber
The timber has received basic treatment and a finished coating at the
factory and can be cleaned with ordinary household cleaners. It must
receive further treatment at least every four years and whenever
required. Windows exposed to strong heat, strong sunlight and/or high
levels of humidity (eg in kitchens or bathrooms) must however receive
treatment at least every two years.
Surface maintenance: Remove surface treatment (lacquer or paint).
Ensure surface is clean and dry and apply primer to the timber. When
dry, apply a coat of waterbased acrylic lacquer/paint (always follow
the manufacturer's directions). Apply the same method to the affected
areas if the lacquer/paint is damaged.
Cleaning the flashing
Leaves and other debris should be removed from the flashing around
the window once per year to allow rainwater to flow freely.
Snow and ice
Remove snow and ice to allow melt water to drain off from and around
the window.
