Not all rooms need extra fresh air, and not all skylights need to be opening. Velux Fixed Skylights are the economical choice to provide plenty of light without the extra cost of a Fly Screen and opening winder.
A Manual Honeycomb Blinds is available . The Manual version is really only useful if the window is within reach. Gently pulling the manual blind downwards by hand closes the window with an almost complete light block.
The Solar Honeycomb Blinds are also available and far more popular due to their ease of use.
Suitability of vented skylight
We are building homes with large open plan living areas and out door areas. Consequently our modern home design often has plenty of ventilation with large sliding windows and doors. However open plan living can create larger shadowy spaces. These dark areas are too often “fixed” with costly, artificial light which can be bad for every-ones health.
Velux fixed skylights help to remove the gloom, and are very economical. In fact they have often also been used in Al Fresco roofs to create a spacious under cover area connected with outdoors.
You will love the views of the sky and the healthy natural daylight.
