the world standard for over 60
years, VELUX deck mounted skylights,
coupled with VELUX step flashing
kits, offer you the best, most
watertight installation method
available. Great for all climatic
regions of the United States, deck
mounted skylights are particularly
well suited for areas where ice,
snow and freezing rain are prevalent.
VELUX deck mounted skylights are
the only skylights available for
combi applications. Deck mounted
skylights combine an insulating
glass lens, a wood frame and protective
cladding into one unit that is
mounted directly to the roof deck.
Flashing kits are available for
most roofing materials like asphalt
shingles, metal roofing and tile.
Blinds and controls and copper
cladding are also available.
for fast and reliably weathertight
installations, VELUX self-flashed
skylights are similar to the deck
mounted skylights except they include
a factory-installed flashing system
designed for shingle roofs only.
Blinds and controls are available.
to be used where a site-built curb
is the preferred method of installation,
curb mounted skylights consist
of an insulating glass lens sealed
into a protective metal frame designed
to mount on top of a site-built
curb. VELUX flashing is installed
around the site-built curb, then
the skylight is mounted onto the
flashed curb and fastened into
place. Blinds and controls are.
Systems – Bring on the Rain
Like water off a duck's
back, VELUX flashing systems are designed
to shed water without relying on sealants
that can break down over time.
VELUX roof windows and
skylights use flashing kits that are
specific to roof pitch and roofing material.
Provided the proper VELUX flashing is
used and installed correctly, the product
is guaranteed against leaks for 10 years.
The unique construction
of VELUX flashings ensures safe drainage
of rainwater coming from the roof above
the skylight, providing complete weathertightness
and preventing leakage. VELUX flashings
blend in well on most roofs because the
roofing material covers the flashing
top and sides and because of their neutral
VELUX flashings are
compatible with virtually any type of
roofing material, from standard covers
such as shingles, shakes, standing seam
metal and tile to corrugated sheeting
or even thatch.
