How do VELUX Modular Skylights help to reduce risk on Site?

The two most important factors to consider when safely incorporating skylights into a development are the safe installation of the units and the efficiency of the process. Using VELUX Modular Skylights creates benefits for installers and main contractors alike. Thanks to the prefabricated and modular nature of the skylights ( and the different module configurations), rapid installation and minimal preparatory works are required to safely install the units at height.

VELUX Modular Skylights are delivered as a prefabricated and modularised system which means that individual modules arrive on-site with no requirement for adaptation or on-site product customisation, including pre-mounted blinds if specified. Individual units can be dropped into place quickly, easily, and with minimal requirement for extensive crane usage. A robust health and safety process is always advised to install the units in a professional manner, but the simplicity of installation allows for installation specialists to streamline this process and minimise time spent preparing the site.

Ease and rapid installation of VELUX Modular Skylights also allows the building envelope to become watertight quicker. Wet weather can pose a serious health and safety hazard for the construction industry and without adequate measures in place, works cannot be safely continued. The smooth and quick installation of the VELUX Modular Skylight system creates reductions in project times so that installers can quickly complete their works and pass on cost-benefits to the end-client and main contractor.
