For mounting on flat roof, can unit be opened to 90 deg to allow entry and egress from floor-to-ceiling steps or ladder?

22-1/2 in. x 46-1/2 in. Fresh Air Venting Curb-Mount Skylight with Laminated Low-E3 Glass is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 9.

Mine came with a split gasket inside the window. I reached out to Velux about the issue and have not received an adequate answer as to what should be done after nearly a month. So as with a lot of companies, I will now have to follow up with them again. . The customer service rep could not answer my question which was then forwarded to the QC department which has not responded. Seems like a good product overall but I don't know if the same can be said of the company.

This was a replacement for an old acrylic model that had cracked so installation was easy. It’s much heavier than the old one so getting it up on the roof took a little more effort. The rod that I used to open the old one is a perfect fit with this one. The quality of this one is excellent and will probably never need to be replaced in my lifetime.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Replacement of existing unit, no problem. I used this to replace another skylight and it was one of the few available that would work with the existing curb. Installation was a breeze other than having to remake part of the light well due to a slight difference the old one and this new one. This is a manually opening model. One small negative is that it takes 35 cranks to fully open the Velux. The old one took 18. It seems this one does open a bit farther though, so it's a fair trade. My one and only complaint is that Velux does not offer this skylight, indeed any other the VCM models, with a manual shade of any sort. If you want a Velux shade (which was the reason I sought out Velux originally) you must buy an electric model with remote control that costs nearly as much or more than the actual skylight. To me, an electric shade, or for that matter an electrically opening skylight, is just one more thing to go wrong. My actual curb dimensions are 26" X 38" which are a bit larger than the stated size for this unit, but it fit with no difficulty. Otherwise, it is a great product which I'm hopeful will give many years of service.

This product is rated for a 0 degree installation angle, but the warranty is only for 10+ degrees. It started leaking after 4 years at 0 degrees. I guess there is a good reason they won't warranty it. It looks good, insulates well, but just doesn't work at the rated installation angle.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Skylight Have not had the opportunity to use it yest, just installed.
Date published: 2016-10-11
Rated 3 out of 5 by from product naming/sizing is confusing with a curb-mounted skylight, you'd think the measurements noted on the box are for the outside of the curb -- the box that you need to cover (outside to outside). not so. the 22.5 measurement is for the glass itself and this skylight is made to cover a 25.5in box. why is the glass size important? while this is noted in the specs here on the site, it's not particularly evident on the product packaging or the naming nomenclature at the store.... they should call it a 25.5x25.5 ... not 22.5x22.5 ... it's a great looking skylight and very well built. i just wish it would have fit.
