VELUX Roof Windows, Flashings, Accessories and Blinds ...

Deck-mounted Roof Windows. VELUX offers two unique models of roof windows in several different sizes.


Just when you thought you had it figured out we offer a third option, the “Pan-Flashed” skylight. The VELUX Pan-Flashed Skylights come with their own flashing system and do not require the EDL or ECL flashing kits necessary for deck and curb mounted skylights. Often used by commercial roofers, the pan-flashed units attach directly to the roof deck and require a commercial roofing sealant. The roofing contractor then shingles up to and around the base of the unit.

Pan-flashed skylights are available in a limited number of sizes all of which are fixed. Blinds and shades are available.
