Product Overview

VELUX skylights are an energy-efficient way to bring sunlight into a home and make dark rooms come to life. Bringing natural light into a home through a skylight decreases the need for electricity while maintaining privacy. Installing a skylight is one of the most impactful ways to enhance both the brightness and beauty of a room.

  • Inside curb dimensions for VELUX FCM 2246 models are 22-1/2 in. by 46-1/2 in. and outside curb dimensions for FCM 2246 models are 25-1/2 in. by 49-1/2 in.
  • The FCM skylight qualifies for a 10-year no leak installation warranty when installed with VELUX ECL flashing on a shingle roof with a pitch between 10° and 60° or VELUX ECW flashing on a tile roof with a pitch between 14° and 60° (flashing kits are sold separately)
  • Features laminated clean, quiet and safe glass with a neat glass coating that keeps your skylight cleaner, reduces unwanted outside noise, is energy efficient, and has an extra glass pane for added safety
  • Consider adding a VELUX solar powered blind (sold and shipped separately) which is eligible for up to a 30% federal tax credit and allows you to control the light
  • Consider upgrading to a VELUX solar powered fresh air skylight (model VCS) to bring both natural light and fresh air into your home using only the power of the sun, plus it is eligible for up to a 30% solar tax credit, making it very affordable

Customer Questions & Answers

Can you install these horizontally? Or does it have to be vertical as shown?

Can you install these horizontally? Or does it have to be vertical as shown?
Asked by: DIY87
You can still use VELUX flashing if you rotate the skylight horizontally; you just have to purchase a different size flashing. If you have a shingle/shake/slate roof and rotate the FCM 2246 horizontally, then you need ECL 4646 0000C flashing; if you rotate the FCM 2246 vertically then you need ECL 2246 0000C flashing. If you have a tile roof and rotate the FCM 2246 horizontally, then you need ECW 4646 0000C flashing; if you rotate the FCM 2246 vertically then you need ECW 2246 0000C flashing. You would only need to use custom flashing if the slope of the roof is too low. The roof pitch for ECL flashing must be between 10-60 degrees and the roof pitch for ECW flashing must be between 14-60 degrees.

No, we do not have metal roof flashing available for our Curb Mount Skylights. You will need to construct your own flashing. Thank you for choosing VELUX!

22-1/2 in. x 46-1/2 in. Fixed Curb-Mount Skylight with Laminated Low-E3 Glass is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 20.

Purchased these to replace 30 year old operational skylights original to the customer's home. They were an EXACT replacement size and cost about the same as having a new plexiglass dome fabricated for the existing lights: therefore it was a no-thought switch. Deliver to store was free ( the plexi dome delivery charge was going to be several hundred MORE dollars ) and they came in within a week of ordering. SO, no complaints with either the product or the time frame: but then we come to the delivery handling - they beat the crud out of it - came dented on all sides, scratched, and scruffed ( still haven't figured out HOW they managed the scruffing since the carton wasn't punctured, just generally beat-up ). Because of the time factor ( and the fact I had a roof with a hole in it ) I fabricated a jig and pulled all the dents ( since it's on a roof, you can't see the little bit of distorted and scratched places from the ground ). SO, bottom line is these are really easy to install, affordable, and built well - just look at them REALLY close when they arrive since the handlers don't care about what condition they arrive in.

The skylight is of sturdy, high-quality construction and the three-layer laminated glass offers UV protection and is quiet and resistant to impact. These features along with its ease of installation combine to make this an easy weekend project for any DIY'r. The curb (2x4 frame) was easy to build on-site. I installed on a semi-flat/low-pitch shed-type roof with no issues. I used peel and stick lapped over the roofing felt underlayment to seal the curb and ran the roll-roofing up the sides of the curb to ensure a weather-tight seal. No leaks. I'd DEFINITELY buy another VELUX skylight without hesitation.

I was replacing a plastic dome type unit that had failed after about 15 years of sun beating down on it. I expect this glass one to last for many more years than the old plastic type.

The glass to metal construction is solid and precise. The manner in which the seal was designed and fits the opening provides excellent protection against possible leaks. Per my roofing guy, who recommended this brand, I only attached the unit with screws to the sides. The fairly gentle pitch of my roof, the fact that wind storms are somewhat rare where I live, the weight and flush fit of the skylight do not require more to secure to the opening. I used sealant for the mounting holes on the top and bottom of the unit. I have other skylights to replace and I will use the Velux brand.
