Top-hung roof windows

More natural light and fresh air

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.
