Highest quality skylights

VELUX are serious about the quality and durability of their products. VELUX skylights and roof windows have been designed to handle any extreme elements Australia can throw at them.

Water tested

VELUX roof windows and skylights have passed the same watertightness testing as roof tiles (AS4285) and are suitable for clients living in areas with significant rainfall.

Cyclone tested

Particularly in Far North Australia, cyclonic conditions can spell trouble for glass building products. VELUX High Performance skylights have passed testing (AS4285) designed to mimic tough cyclonic weather conditions. VELUX High Performance skylights are suitable for clients in regions prone to cyclones.

Heat and UV tested

VELUX are one of the few skylight products to be certified by the Window Energy Rating Scheme (WERS) for use in residential applications. For summer performance, VELUX skylights received the maximum 5 star WERS rating. All VELUX skylights are:

  • Double glazed
  • Argon gas filled
  • Low E3 coated

High Performance double glazing blocks up to 80% heat transfer and 99% of harmful UV rays.

Bushfire tested

VELUX High Performance skylights have a BAL 40 rating and have been exposed to temperatures of 930° degrees during testing. These products are suitable for use in builds located in bushfire prone areas.

Sound tested

A VELUX skylight can do more than bring natural light into your client’s home, it can also protect them from unwanted noise. In a highly regulated CSIRO testing facility, VELUX skylights were able to significantly reduce noise from airplanes, jack hammers and sirens.

Hail tested

Although hailstorms can be devastating for glass products, there is surprisingly no official hail test for glass skylights in Australia. Not willing to leave anything to chance, VELUX has tested their skylights using a heightened version of the American Solar Collector Hail Impact Test (ASTM E822-2009). During testing, a VELUX skylight was able to withstand simulated cricket ball sized hailstones making impact at 172 kph.

Load tested

VELUX skylights have been load tested to withstand a:

  • 50kg tyre hitting its weakest point
  • 110kg concentrated load on its two weakest points for one full minute

Safety tested

VELUX skylights are extremely tough and those with high performance double glazing are AS1288 compliant. In the unlikely event that a VELUX skylight does break, it will be kept in one piece thanks to the laminated safety glass inside.

Roof window supplies

Purpose built for manual, in-reach operation, openable roof windows allow your clients to flood their attics or loft spaces with natural lighting. Convenient vent flaps give your customers the freedom of enjoying all day ventilation without having to keep their windows open.
