It’s finally here! VELUX’s long-awaited curved glass rooflight landed in the UK this week, with five sizes being released and a further three coming at the end of May.
The curved glass rooflight is the latest addition to VELUX’s award-winning flat roof window family and comes with some pretty cool features that will give you the easiest of decisions if you’re looking to install a VELUX flat roof window.
CurveTech is the name of VELUX’s innovative design for their curved glass top cover. Its purpose is to provide a simple, modern-looking finish to this unique product, with external aesthetics key to its construction.
The curve-shaped glass provides natural drainage for your roof, letting rainwater elegantly slide down the cover, ensuring a clearer view of the sky and more natural daylight entering your home.
Another major step forward from the leaders in the roof window market, VELUX.
What does a curved glass rooflight consist of?
The curved glass top cover has a 6mm thick, scratch-free glazing pane with a glass-to-edge design that extends beyond the supporting frame, meaning a bigger area for daylight to seep into your room.
The VELUX curved glass rooflight will not look out of place on your roof - it doesn’t matter if you’re covering it in felt, rubber or EPDM. A black external coating applied to the rooflight offers a discreet, professional-looking finish that is guaranteed to match in with your chosen flat roof material.
The internal flat roof window consists of a highly-insulated kerb, constructed from PVC and an integrated 2-layer low-energy pane that ensures heat doesn’t escape through the window.
Fixed? Electric? The choice is yours...
Curved glass rooflights from VELUX are available in a simple, non-opening form or an awe-inspiring electronically operated format. Both versions come with an exceedingly low U-value of 1.2W/m²K that allows for reduced energy consumption – saving money on those energy bills!
Electronically operated VELUX INTEGRA curved glass rooflights come ready to go with a handheld remote control, allowing for easy operation at the touch of a button. The windows feature automated operation and a plethora of pre-set programmes for automatic ventilation and daylight control.
With prices starting from just £458+VAT, the VELUX curved glass rooflight is a welcome addition to the VELUX flat roof family.
