The design of Velux roof windows was inspired by the original European attic windows. The earliest Roof Windows were either Fixed skylights or Centre-pivot roof windows. Centre-pivot windows provide ventilation and are the perfect choice when they can be reached without using a control rod or ladder. Attics and Loft Conversions look great with roof windows.
The Dual-Action roof window opens outwards with a clever mechanism that is a real benefit in very low ceilings. When the location is out of reach use a different window: Our alternative – the Velux Opening Skylight. The Opening Skylight can be opened remotely, even when high above the floor.
