Roofteq brings you – New VELUX products for 2011
Over 60 years ago VELUX started making the world’s leading roof windows. And they’re still going strong today – with innovation and sustainability at the heart of what they do.
VELUX say their windows keep heat loss to a minimum. They make the most of solar thermal gain and maximise natural daylight and fresh air. They also say that using their windows on their own or together with their solar hot water systems will help your customers reduce their fuel bills and CO2 emissions.
All sounds pretty straightforward and it seems their aim for the future is simple too: to continue to help create healthy buildings that are great places to live while offering real value for money.
So we know they’re innovators but what’s new for 2011?

Bring the sunshine in with the VELUX award winning Sun Tunnel by Lovegrove
Amaze your customers by bringing in natural light where they never thought it could reach
This innovative product has been revamped in partnership with the internationally acclaimed designer Ross Lovegrove to create a new look for the interior element of the existing VELUX Sun Tunnel.
Launched in 2005 the Sun Tunnel brings natural light into even the darkest and most isolated spaces through a specially designed tunnel from roof to ceiling. The new add-on acts as a daylight lamp that uses the sun as a bulb. This offers previously dark rooms a beautiful natural light reflectance while allowing the user to adjust the spread of the light.
