Top-hung roof windows

The sky is the limit with a top-hung roof window. Operated with an elegant handle at the bottom, VELUX top-hung roof windows give you a full, open view of your skyline and maximise the amount of natural daylight that can be allowed in. As well as opening outwards for an unobstructed view and feeling of extra space, VELUX top-hung windows also rotate 180 degrees for easy cleaning from the inside.

Centre-Pivot roof windows

A centre-pivot roof window is easy to operate - even with furniture beneath. The innovative top control bar allows you to install the window lower than an equivalent bottom-operated window to get an excellent view while standing and when seated.

Add on elements

The vertical window elements are designed to be installed directly below your VELUX roof windows. As the windows stretch nearly to the floor, they ensure a great view and open up your loft – and your living space.
