ABOUT VELUX SKYLIGHTS AND ROOF WINDOWS
VELUX can provide the solution to create bright, sunny interiors even if you have a flat ceiling under a sloping roof. The simple construction of a shaft is all that's needed to capture light and bring fresh air into the home.
A skylight shaft is a light well from which the incoming light from the skylight is distributed into the room. If the shaft is 'flared' it is possible to make both the skylight and the shaft appear larger, and it ensures the light is more evenly distributed once it enters the room.
Just imagine how opening the ceiling to the sky will visually expand a room with sunlight from above, cool breezes and the spacious open feeling of being in touch with the outdoors.
