How are VELUX Modular Skylights different to other skylights systems on the market?

VELUX Modular Skylights are fully prefabricated offsite with all required detailing such as cladding and flashings for fast assembly onsite. Produced to tight tolerances in a factory-controlled environment, the system is unique in the market for skylights. Each specification is designed to a set of customer requirements that help to tailor the units to the building management strategy. A range of different specifications in terms of ventilation (openable and fixed units) and glazing variations, including roller blinds can be controlled via VELUX INTEGRA® control pad or a building management system.

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. Individual units can be dropped into place quickly, easily, and with minimal requirement for 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.

Because the rooflights are so easy to install, contractors can benefit from far quicker installation, reduced disruption in the wider build process, minimised labour requirement (in terms of both hours and skill level required), and as a result work to far tighter project timescales.

Each of these factors essentially contribute to wider projects being completed on time, within budget, and all while minimising the risk to operatives either installing the units or performing other works in and around the construction site. It’s for this reason that the VELUX Modular Skylight system has become a choice product for roofing contractors.
