Roof window manufacturer VELUX has launched the world’s first curved glass rooflight for flat roofs.
The VELUX curved glass rooflight features CurveTech, an innovative curve-shaped glass top that lets rainwater easily drain off the surface and allows daylight to shine through without raindrops getting in the way.
The rooflight has a fully programmable control pad that offers remote control operation of out-of-reach rooflights and a pre-fitted rain sensor closes the rooflight automatically in the event of rain.
It features a combination of insulating PVC frame and double-glazed, low-energy inner pane, ensuring heat does not escape through the window and helps to maintain the home’s ideal indoor climate.
In addition, toughened glass makes the rooflight virtually impervious to damage from the elements and maintenance free PVC material used on the interior frame is also easy to clean.
Five different sizes of rooflight will be made available in April, followed by a further three at the end of May.
Grant Sneddon, product manager at VELUX explained that recent research has demonstrated that many homeowners do not realise the daylight potential of glazing in the roof until after they have completed their projects.
He added that flat roof extensions can often be seen from other levels of the house so, as well as proving a range of interior benefits, the curved glass rooflight has been designed to look great both inside and out.
