About VELUX Solar Powered Skylights

VELUX solar powered skylights feature a fully concealed, battery powered operator and control system. This system is recharged by a state-of-the-art solar panel that captures available light. The solar powered battery is the sole power source that opens and closes the skylight, which is operated by a wireless advanced radio frequency remote control.

A VELUX solar skylight reduces dependence on electrical lighting and enhances the air quality in the room where it's installed, for a greener environment both inside and out. Plus, it requires no outside charging to operate, making it an eco-conscious alternative to electrical wired skylights.

A perk of installing a VELUX skylight is that it enhances privacy by eliminating the need for vertical windows. This can be essential in rooms like the bathroom, where privacy and light are very important. Of course, a VELUX solar skylight can beautify many other spaces. It can bring elegant light to living spaces and studies, especially because overhead light greatly reduces glare by bringing more balanced light into deeper spaces. VELUX solar powered skylight shades can even help further reduce glare.

These VELUX skylights have many options when it comes to the construction materials, including Neat glass coating that keeps skylights cleaner, longer. Furthermore, VELUX skylight glass reduces unwanted outside noise by up to 25% less than a standard double pane glass, and up to 50% less than a plastic skylight. VELUX recommends and many building codes require the use of laminated glass for out of reach applications.

VELUX solar-powered skylights also offer some of the most competitive warranties on the market. When installed by a professional contractor and with VELUX flashing, some skylights can even qualify for a 10 to 20 year installation warranty.
