VELUX Fixed Skylights
VELUX fixed skylights help visually expand dark spaces that generally do not get the same access to natural light as the more open areas of a building. They provide an economical choice for creating a spacious home filled with natural light. Fixed skylights come in rectangular or square shapes. These skylights can be installed on any roof pitch, from flat to steep.
VELUX only uses sturdy, reliable, and visually appealing glass in its skylight systems, ensuring they are safe and quiet. This glass is coated with a material designed to keep dirt and grime off its surface, making it easier to keep clean. VELUX skylights can reduce noise by up to 25% more than standard double-pane glass and up to 50% more than plastic skylights.
These skylights are perfect for buildings with high ceilings. Only laminated and impact glass meet current building codes for skylights installed in ceiling heights of 8 feet or greater, making them a safe and reliable option.
The North Carolina Department of Insurance requires coastal customers living in Wind Zone 3 and 4 to upgrade the glass in skylights to impact. Impact glass has an additiona I layer of laminated glass and can better withstand flying debris.
Both laminated and impact glass skylights carry the VELUX 10-Year Hail Warranty.
VELUX offers several different types of skylights throughout the United States. In this area, most units will be either Curb Mounted or Deck Mounted Units.
Curb-mounted skylights can be installed in a roof pitch of 0-60 degrees. They sit upon a platform or curb constructed of wood and the curb is constructed to provide an elevated surface for installation. VELUX offers these units with tempered, laminated, and impact glass. Only the laminated and impact glass units meet current building codes and carry the 10 Year Hail Glass Replacement Warranty. Bubbled or old acrylic skylights are most often replaced with new flat laminated loe3 glass skylights. Curb Mounted Skylights are also recommended for rolled-roof applications and can be articulated horizontally.
Deck-mounted skylights are installed directly onto a roof deck, in a vertical direction, and should not be installed in a roof pitch less than 3:12 or 14 degrees. These units come in both square and rectangular shapes.
Deck-mounted skylights are best situated on roofs with a pitch between 14 and 85 degrees.

The Benefits of Fixed Skylights
A fixed skylight can be a great addition to any home for various reasons. From natural lighting to reduced energy costs, skylights have numerous benefits when constructing or renovating your home.
Here are a few notable benefits of installing a fixed skylight in your home:
- Natural Light: Installing a fixed skylight in your home will allow natural light to fill the room from above, making it brighter and more inviting. This increased natural light will make your living space feel more spacious and cheerful, which can visually expand the area.
- Reduced Energy Costs: Not only does installing a fixed skylight help reduce energy consumption by providing natural light during the day, but it helps regulate indoor temperatures throughout the year, lowering energy bills.
- Quality of Life: Besides providing functional benefits such as natural light and energy savings, installing a fixed skylight in your home also provides quality-of-life benefits that should not be overlooked. A beautiful view of nature combined with plenty of natural daylight creates an open, relaxing atmosphere. Watching the stars or indulging in the morning sunlight is a big plus, too.
Overall, installing a fixed skylight is worth considering if you want to reduce energy costs while creating an inviting atmosphere in your home.
