More and more homeowners are choosing to extend their home to create extra living space for the whole family to enjoy. With always improving flat roof materials, flat roofs are becoming a more popular solution, allowing larger extensions and greater design flexibility.
With the potential for flat roof extensions to extend much further than pitched roof ones, it is essential to account for glazing in the roof, allowing daylight to reach further into the house that it would with only vertical glazing.
It is more important than ever before to ensure a flat roof window which looks as good on the outside as it does on the inside is included within the design to provide daylight and fresh air - that is why VELUX launched the first curved-glass rooflight for roof pitches between 0 and 15°. The Curved Glass Rooflight provides all the functional benefits of a traditional dome but with a design that sets it apart from other solutions.
The VELUX Curved Glass Rooflight utilises the same base unit as the existing range of flat roof windows - meaning the new curved glass rooflight is installed in the same easy way. The new product gives builders and installers the opportunity to provide different options depending on the needs of the homeowner, knowing that all can be installed in the same way.
The new VELUX Curved Glass Rooflight comes in 8 sizes and can be fixed or electrically operated if ventilation is required. Both fixed and electric versions are compatible with all sun screening products including awnings for solar shading as well as double and single pleated blinds for controlling the amount of light entering the room.
