Velux Modular Skylights (VMS)

VELUX America offers a line of Modular Skylights (VMS) designed in collaboration with architects from Foster + Partners. The system, available in six configurations, integrates ventilation and sunscreening components into a skylight design, making installation and customization easy. The configurations include Ridgelight with Beam 5°, Ridgelight 25-40°, Longlight 5-25°, Northlight 40-90°, and Atrium. VELUX Modular Skylights have been used in projects worldwide, including the renovation of Cornell University’s East Sibley Hall College of Architecture and the F.N. Burt Company Factory in Buffalo, New York.

The VMS system is pre-engineered and eliminates the need for complicated on-site installation processes. The skylights are available through select specialized VELUX commercial partners and come in fixed and venting configurations, with custom sizing, colors, and glazings available. The VELUX-supplied control system allows for integration with a building energy management system for ultimate energy efficiency.

Longlight 5-30°

This single-pitch option is well-suited for flat roofs and is also compatible with sloped roofs and flat roofing materials. The opening width in the roof ranges from 0.6 to 3.1 meters, with a slightly smaller range of 0.8 to 2.5 meters for venting modules. The rooflight installation pitch can be set between 5 and 30 degrees.

The benefits of this option include a sleek and understated look due to its low pitch design. It also provides additional natural light to hallways, corridors, and larger rooms. Furthermore, it offers great value-for-money since it can be installed quickly and without complications.

This series of rooflights is designed to connect buildings of different heights, featuring a flat roof as the base and a vertical wall at the top. It is suitable for use with flat roofs, and the opening width in the roof ranges from 0.6 to 3.2 meters (0.8 to 2.6 meters for venting modules). The installation pitch for the rooflights ranges from 5 to 45 degrees.

The key benefits of this rooflight series include its ability to facilitate innovative solutions for both new buildings and extensions, while also providing increased daylight, height, and space to a room. Additionally, it offers fast and easy installation.

Northlight 25-90°

This is a series of rooflights that are ideal for sloped, shed, or sawtooth roofs, as well as for flat roofing materials. The rooflights have an opening width in the roof that ranges from 0.6 to 3.1 meters, with venting modules having a range of 0.8 to 2.5 meters. They can be installed on roofs with a pitch of 25 to 90 degrees.

One of the key benefits of these rooflights is their possibility for an upright design. Additionally, they prevent glare and allow soft light to enter when facing North. They are specifically designed for installation directly into sloped roofs, without the need for adding a sub-construction.

A large glass roof can be created by connecting several rows of skylight modules, making it suitable for flat roofs and flat roofing materials.
