Roof windows are primarily used to add more natural
light to a room or space. They can also be opened in order to
improve ventilation. Below are a few more reasons why people buy
Velux Solar Powered INTEGRA Roof Windows.
• VELUX windows allow you to make use of an
otherwise unused attic or roof space. You may wish to turn your
unused roof space into another room. Roof windows are a perfect way
to let light into your room. With Velux Solar Powered INTEGRA roof
windows you can also control them with the included remote control.
There is also no need to reroute electrical wires in your attic, as
these windows get all the power they need from the sun.
• These windows can be installed in areas where installing
traditional roof windows would be unsuitable, such as on high
ceilings. Installing a traditional roof window on a high ceiling
means that opening and closing it would be no easy task. With these
solar powered roof windows, the included remote control can be used
to open and close them. If it rains, the built in rain sensor will
automatically close the window, preventing damage to the contents
of your room.
• Velux Solar Powered INTEGRA Roof Windows are completely weather
proof. Provided you correctly install the roof window, by following
the easy to read instructions included, it will stand up to the
most severe storms. If it starts to rain when you are not home, and
you have left the window open, the rain sensor will automatically
close the window.
• You are able to install blinds or shutters with Velux Solar
Powered INTEGRA Roof Windows, giving you further light and privacy
control. If you choose to install electric blinds or shutters then
you can use the remote that comes with the roof window to control
them. Instead of having two remotes to control different parts, you
can use a single remote to control all parts.
• These windows can be installed in new or existing homes. Whether
you a partaking in a new build, doing some renovating, or simply
want to let some more light into a dull room, these windows can be
easily installed. Because they are fully solar powered, you don't
have to worry about rewiring a room if the electrics have already
been laid out.
• A flyscreen can be easily fitted to these windows so there is no
need to worry about insects entering your home when the window is
open. This can be of particular benefit to homes where insects are
a problem in warm summer months. Fitting a flyscreen to other types
of window can sometimes be a difficult task.
• Opening these windows on hot days allows hot air to leave the
room and ventilate to the outside. This makes you home cooler and
also means that you are less reliant on air conditioning, saving
you money as a bonus.
• Velux Solar Powered INTEGRA Roof Windows are safe and secure.
Because the handle is mounted on the top of the window, children
will be unable to open the window by themselves. If you wish, you
can also use a bolt to lock the window close, or keep it partially
opened, adding to the safety and security.
• These windows can be installed quickly and easily. Unlike
traditional electric roof windows, which need to be plugged into a
power source, Velux Solar Powered INTEGRA Roof Windows need no
other power source but the sun. This means you will not need to
think about rerouting wires in your home before installing this
What Are The Different Glazing Options?
The Velux Solar Powered INTEGRA Roof Windows on offer here offer
similar style and function but they differ when it comes to glazing
options. Knowing what the different glazing options consist of,
will help when choosing which option is right for you. There are
three different glazing options with these windows.
This is an improved version of the Velux standard --59 pane. The
outer pane is toughened and the inner pane has been laminated. This
gives them some extra protection against breakage. Windows with
this type of glazing a perfect for being placed above head height.
These windows also have improved noise reduction when compared to
the -59 pane option. Velux has applied their clean and clear outer
coating to this glazing option, meaning that the window will stay
cleaner for longer and also be easier to clean when they get dirty.
The GGU 007330 and GGL 307330 feature this type of glazing.
Like the --73 pane, the -60 pane comes with a laminated inner pane
for added protection. The -60 pane offers better energy efficiency
and noise reduction when compared to the -73 pane. Like the --73
pane, it also comes with Velux's clear and clean outer coating,
keeping it cleaner for longer, and allowing it to be easily wiped
clean when it does eventually become dirty. The GGL 306030 and GGU
006030 feature this type of glazing.
These windows feature triple glazing which offers the lowest
U-Value (U-Value is the measurement of the rate of heat loss
through a material )and greatest noise reduction of all the glazing
options. It also features the laminated inner pane that comes with
the --60 pane and -73 pane options. The clear and clean outer
coating is also present here, keeping the window cleaner for longer
and making it easier to wipe down when it is dirty. The GGU 006530
and GGL 306530 feature this type of glazing.
