I have a bathroom with a low pitch roof over it, the clearance is only between 18 - 24" between the ceiling and roof deck. Can I use a rigid tube or must I use the flexible tube skylight?

Answer: 
The minimum clearance for the Rigid Tunnel is 12", so you can use just the rigid upper elbow (12") for your run. Thank you for choosing VELUX!

Answer: 
No, the TGR 010 is not compatible with a metal roof, therefore, we do not recommend installing it on a metal roof application. If you would like a Sun Tunnel for your metal roof, the TCR 014 would be your best option. This particular Sun Tunnel installs over a site built curb. It comes with a flashing to fit over the curb, but you must make your own flashing for the metal roofing material around the Read More

My kitchen is on the ground level and it is very dark all the time. I'd like to run a tubular skylight from my flat roof through a newly made shoot, through my closet upstairs to the kitchen below. Will the light shine that far down? Do they make the tubs that long?
Thank you

Answer: 
Velux makes a rigid tunnel that can be installed on a flat roof that is the TCR 014. They recommend no more than a 20 foot run. If your application can accept a 20 foot run these please consider this product for the best application.

Answer: 
To clean your Sun Tunnel, you must remove the diffusers. To remove the diffuser in your VELUX Sun Tunnel, you will need a flat head tool (flat head screwdriver or butter knife). Once you remove the trim ring from the ceiling, you will have access to the diffuser and the gasket. Simply wedge your tool between the gasket and the diffuser. The diffuser is pliable, so you will be able to pry it out of the Read More

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Solution to a windowless bathroom Had this put in a bathroom with no window so we wouldn't have to turn on a light in the daytime. Did the trick. We love it. Like the fact that you can get optional items for it such as a dome shaped diffuser to make it look like an electric light, a baffle to reduce the amount of light, and even an electric light that fits inside the tube. April 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Velux 14" Low Profile vs. ODL 14" So, I spent the last few days installing two of these skylights and two 14" ODL skylights. We put three into a friends mobile home and one into my house. The Velux was superior to the ODL as there was about an extra 5" between articulation points. The ODL had rather tight articulation - that's to say that the elbows are towards the end of the tubing. The plastic coating that covers the inside was put on prior to them assembling the tubes, which made it extremely difficult to articulate the angle prior to removing the film. Removing the film was difficult, as the metal was riveted together over the film. You're best bet is to gently push the metal in around the articulation joint as you pull out the film. IF you get the film out, then it will be easier to turn. Pulling the film out of the Velux was much easier and the elbows turned easily. The Velux comes with two articulation elbows and a 24" section of metal that you have to assemble with self tapping screws. This turned out to be much easier to use that the ODL, which had two long sections, which are connected, with one being marked TOP and one being marked BOTTOM. You'll need to buy extra tubing if there isn't an overlap of 2". I had a 2" gap and had to pay for an additional extension. The Velux has a nicer METAL (vs plastic) roof boot. The Low Profile Flashing worked great on the pitch of his mobile home. The Velux has a larger dome. It has a more diffused diffuser over the ceiling part, which is in fact two pieces of plastic sandwiched to about 1" thick. The ODL has a piece of glass that has small bumps, which refract more like tiny diamonds. In other words, the Velux had a more evenly scattered light falling on the objects around. However, the major difference in my opinion is that the tube/dome in the ODL gives off a bluish cast. The light coming in from the ceiling, looks like a very blue fluorescent tube light. The Velux light was much more evenly cast and gave off a more natural color. The Velux also had much higher quality components, with four packs of screws (some were self tapping), whereas the ODL didn't even come with self tapping screws. I bought the ODL for my house, as I didn't want to wait for the extra week for it to ship. Big mistake. If I could take back the ODL for the Velux, I'd do it in a minute. A note on installation: if you can get a straight shot up from the ceiling, it will be your best choice. Any articulation (I had to move 7" off center over a 52" span because of a roof truss) makes for a major headache in installation and gaps where the metal doesn't fit tightly. Two of the skylights we put in had this difficulty (which was more difficult with the ODL). The two that went in straight we could have easily done in two hours. Another note, don't do like some videos show and pull off all the roofing material above. Simple lay the roofing boot over your spot on the roof, upside down, and mark the radius with a crayon or chalk, then cut it out with a reciprocating saw. Put into place and seal it up. Both products made a dramatic difference in the lighting in the rooms that they were placed in. People kept looking for the new light switch before realizing that it was just the tubular skylights. Given the difference, I would definitely spend the extra $50 for the Velux. The far left dome is the ODL, the two closer ones are the Velux. August 28, 2014
