The Modular Skylights system by VELUX was designed by Foster + Partners for architects. Wall-mounted longlights are a series of Modular Skylights mounted against a vertical wall. This opens up a new range of design possibilities where the expression is not limited by the placement of the skylight.
Natural daylight and fresh air are two of the most important factors in a comfortable indoor climate. Modular Skylights let you get more light and fresh air in your home by opening otherwise closed areas of the ceiling in your living room, kitchen or hallways. This increase of light can open larger living spaces, provide functional light for work surfaces and dining areas, and breathe life into otherwise dark hallways. Ventilation and sun screening can also boost your indoor comfort by helping to keep temperatures stable and comfortable.
Modular Skylights system are sash-frame constructed single skylights with a high-insulating glazing unit. The modules are available as fixed and venting skylights. All individual skylights are delivered as prefabricated modules with dedicated factory finished flashings to ensure superior water tightness in every available solution. VELUX modular skylights with ventilation capabilities may also be used as Natural Smoke and Heat Exhaust Ventilators (NSHEV).
Each roof glazing solution is delivered with a special prefabricated flashing ensuring a perfect fit and 100% water tightness. As the skylight modules are supplied with installation brackets and clamps, a fast and secure installation is guaranteed. The flashing allows for configurations with a pitch of 5° and 40°. Wall-mounted longlights are mounted on a standard steel profile of 100mm width at the wall.
- Fewer profiles – more blue sky
Slim profiles allow more natural light in by reducing the amount of frame. Curved surfaces minimize shadowing effect.
- Integrated actuator
The hidden actuator opens and closes the unit via the remote control or pre-programmed settings.
- Daylight control in a free-floating design
Roller blinds are supported by thin, free-floating wires to create an invisible effect. Blinds are available in three neutral colors.
- Intelligent operation
With a built-in VELUX INTEGRA® intelligent system, you control all venting modules and roller blinds directly via the INTEGRA® control pad. Every venting installation is fitted with a rain sensor.
- Double-glazing unit
- Triple-glazing unit
