Product Overview

VELUX VCM operable "Fresh Air" Skylights can be opened to create a chimney effect that draws air upward to improve air circulation and air quality within your home. It can be installed on a flat roof at 0° up to a 60° roof pitch on a site-built curb. Bringing natural light into a home through a skylight decreases the need for artificial light while maintaining privacy. Installing a skylight is one of the most impactful ways to enhance the brightness and beauty of a room.
  • VCM 2222 models are designed to fit a site-built curb (not included) with outside dimensions 25-1/2 in. x 25-1/2 in.
  • Qualifies for a 10-year "No Leak" installation warranty when installed with ECL 2246 flashing on a shingle roof with a pitch between 10° and 60° or ECW 2246 flashing on a tile roof with a pitch between 14° and 60° (flashing kits are sold separately)
  • Features clean, quiet and safe Low-E3 laminated glass with a Neat glass coating that keeps your skylight cleaner, reduces unwanted outside noise and comes with a 10-year hail warranty against glass breakage
  • Consists of double paned argon gas filled low-E3 glass that provides excellent energy performance for year round comfort, plus the added safety of laminated glass, which building codes require for out of reach applications
  • Since most VCM skylight models are installed out-of-reach they include a hook for operating the skylight, but a ZZZ 212 crank handle is sold separately for in-reach applications
  • ZCT 300 manual control rod for out-of-reach applications is sold separately, which can operate multiple skylights

Love these two skylights! Vents the cooking moisture and heat out of the kitchen. Brings in fresh air without the bugs. I added diffuser and grid support made from fluorescent lighting plastic. Pure sunlight was too harsh.

    The skylight fits like a glove on the flashing.
    The skylight fits like a glove on the flashing. Well designed and engineered, NO hassle with alignment or fitting, not often you'll find that the flashing kits fits exact with the skylight. I bought the 22 1/2 x 34 1/2, my review doesn't seem to go under the size of window I bought, anyways, great buy. I'm not a contractor, just a handy DIY guy. Thanks.

      Great skylight, no leaks!
      Six trouble-free years with our Velux manual fresh air skylights, and we look forward to many more! I love being able to look up at the trees and sky. Great to quickly cool down the house in the evenings, too.

        Just tested the hook.When I started to turn it by the rod, then it broke into 3 pieces right away. The hook is made by plastic which can not bear the twisting. Now I need to climb a ladder and use my hand to twist the hook manually every time I want to open the sky window.

          We had 2 cracked dome plastic skylights that were over 25 years old. Now buying the domed type costs more than the flat glass, so we ended up buying 4 to make them all match. These VELUX Fixed Curb-Mount Skylights fit perfectly over our existing curbs! Installation was super easy. The flat profile looks so much better from the outside. And the clear glass really brightens the room!

          Bad advice
          My roofer ordered a manual fresh air skylight, there are several things that let us down. The only hand crank is designed to be used with a pole. Our light is at standing height and opening the light with the small crank attachment (only one included) is daunting and undesirable. The wall mount worked out of the box but when I tried to hook up the included wifi connection with the instructions on the directed app the switch no longer works. Very disappointed!! The window is stuck in the down position.

          Hi Tim. VELUX manually venting skylight will come automatically with an eyelet or loop, but you can obtain a crank handle for situations when the skylight is within your reach. You will just need to loosen the set screw on the loop and place the crank handle on the stem/shaft. We can help sync your skylight shade to your wifi gateway that was with your skylight by calling our Technical Support team @ 1-800-888-0361. This group is available to help you troubleshoot this issue: Monday-Thursday from 8am-7pm and on Friday's from 8am-5:30pm EST. We look forward to your call and in getting your solar powered shade functioning properly with the VELUX Active app on your smart phone. We hope that once this matter is settled, that we can turn your opinion of VELUX from a 1 star to a 5 star experience!

            We installed a pair of 22.5" x 22.5" solar-powered, fresh-air venting skylights to replace a much older fixed skylight in a vaulted ceiling. UPS delivered both units in perfect condition, arriving here in Hawaii within a few days of it being shipped. The only qualm was finding quite a bit of plastic shavings trapped between the screen and the glass of the skylight, as though it was never cleaned out before testing and packaging the units. Those were easily swept out before the final installation. The installation was easy enough. The most difficult part was finding the "on" switch. There's an opening along the bottom, inside edge of the skylight, and the small red sliding switch was recessed well within that opening. I had to use the blunt end of a barbecue stick to move the switch to the "on" position. After that, programming the remote to operate this solar-powered skylight was simple. The existing curbs for the original skylights were actually slightly undersized which meant additional framing had to be added to the outer perimeter of the original curbs. While this meant the skylights were a perfect fit, it also meant that the screens can't be removed -- because the original light shaft is smaller than it should be for this skylight. We didn't want to cut into the roof and build a whole new curb since the existing one was working fine and wasn't leaking at all. And it's not a big deal that the screens can't be removed. It can still be cleaned when necessary. What caught our attention, when we were looking for a skylight that could be opened, was that these automatically close when it starts raining. We were concerned that one day the skylights would be accidentally left open during a typical unexpected Hawaiian rain shower. Testing it with an artificial rain shower from a garden hose proved that it works as advertised. The skylights open and close slowly, taking around 70 seconds to fully open or close. The best part is that these venting skylights keep hot air from building up due to the vaulted ceiling, and allow the fresh tradewinds to circulate through the room. Time will tell as to how well they hold up. But they worked perfectly the moment they were in place.
