Solar Powered "Fresh Air" Skylights The Solar Powered "Fresh Air" Skylight available for both deck and curb mount installations features a solar panel that captures available daylight and uses it to recharge a highly efficient, fully concealed battery powered operator and control system.
This operator is the power source that opens and closes the skylight, negating the need for electrical wiring during installation. It allows for abundant natural light, and with the touch of a button, opens to let in fresh air. And if you forget to close it, a rain sensor will shut the skylight during inclement weather.

The new product design delivers brighter natural light and the easiest installation available. VELUX roof windows are designed for in-reach applications that require egress emergency escape capabilities.
Contemporary skylights using glass infill windows typically use sealed insulating glass units IGU made with two panes of glass. These types of products are NFRC-ratable for visible transmittance. Assemblies with three panes can sometimes be cost-justified in the coldest climate zones, but they lose some light by adding the third layer of glass.
Glass units typically include at least one low emissivity Low-E coating applied to one or more glass surfaces to reduce the U-factor and especially SHGC by suppressing radiant heat flow. Many varieties of Low-E coatings also reduce daylight potential to different degrees. High purity inert gas is frequently used in the space s between panes, and advances in thermally efficient glass spacing and supporting elements can further improve thermal performance of glass-glazed skylight assemblies.
Plastic glazing infill is commonly used in many skylights and TDDs. These assemblies typically contain thermally formed domes, but molded shapes are not uncommon. Domed skylights are typically used on low slope roofs. The dome shape allows for shedding of water and burning embers.
Plastics used in skylights are UV stabilized and may feature other advances to improve thermal properties. Lack of accepted standards for measuring light transmittance is a disadvantage for comparing and choosing skylights with plastic glazing. We know skylights!
