Glazing options

Because of their location, roof windows are exposed to all kinds of weather. VELUX glazing provides heat insulation, sound insulation, added strength and safety – and protection from the elements. We offer a full range of glazing types to suit your particular needs.

We recommend using laminated panes on all windows above head height. The inner glass in a laminated pane consists of two layers of ordinary float glass with a layer of plastic foil between. If the glass shatters, the shards are retained by the foil.




--59 pane
Standard --59 Pane
This standard glazing comes with a toughened outer pane. In winter, it reflects 60% of the heat normally lost through glass, back into the room. During the summer, it works in reverse by reflecting excessive heat from the sun to help prevent the room from overheating.


--34 Pane
--34 Obscure Pane
Combines standard glazing with the inner pane obscured. This makes it ideal for bathrooms as it provides privacy without reducing the amount of natural light.
--73 Pane
--73 Pane
An improved version of our Standard --59 Pane, this glazing comes with a toughened outer and laminated inner pane. This makes it ideal for windows that are positioned above head height. As well as giving you extra protection against breakage, it has improved noise reduction, compared with --59 Pane. It also comes with our clean and clear coating, which helps the window stay cleaner for longer. Ideal for high-level applications, which are hard to access for cleaning.

--60 Pane
--60 Pane
As with the --73 Pane, it comes with a laminated inner for extra protection. The added benefit of the --60 Pane is that it offers even better energy efficiency and noise reduction. It also comes with our clear and clean outer coating, which helps the window stay cleaner for longer. Ideal for high-level applications, which are hard to access for cleaning.

--65 Pane
--65 Pane
Triple glazed giving the lowest U-value and greater noise reduction. As with the --60 Pane, it comes with a laminated inner for extra protection. Clearview coating on the external pane minimises the formation of condensation.

--41Q pane
The double glazed unit provides enhanced safety and security levels compared to other panes. It comes with a toughened outer pane combined with a laminated inner pane which provides a Burglary Resistance of Class P5A. Used only in the GGLQ variant window.
