About This Product

This VELUX fixed FCM skylight with the Go Solar option includes a pre-installed solar powered room darkening shade and an internet gateway, allowing you to control the shade with your smartphone and enable automatic programs that boost energy efficiency. The solar powered shade is designed to harness the power of the sun to control the amount of daylight entering through your skylight. Installing a skylight is one of the most impactful ways to enhance the brightness and beauty of a room. Bringing natural light into a home through a skylight decreases the need for artificial light while maintaining privacy. FCM skylights are ideal for replacing existing curb mount skylights, including old plastic bubble skylights. This model can be installed on a site-built curb on a flat roof or up to a 60° roof pitch.

Highlights

  • Solar powered shade has a built-in solar panel and rechargeable battery-operated control system so no electrical wiring or electrician is needed for installation
  • Room darkening shade (included) utilizes a double-pleated honeycomb structure with an interior aluminum coating to block even the brightest sunlight, making it ideal for bedrooms, entertainment rooms or any other space where light control is important
  • FCM 2246 models are designed to fit a site-built curb (not included) with outside dimensions 25-1/2 in. width x 49-1/2 in. length
  • Qualifies for a 10-year "no leak" installation warranty when installed with ECL flashing on a shingle roof with a pitch between 10° - 60° or ECW flashing on a tile roof with a pitch between 14° - 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
  • Includes an internet gateway and handheld remote control so you can operate the shade either with or without a smartphone

Q:My existing skylights measure 26x50 outside and 21.5x45.5 inside. Which size should I select? Are the listed size selections outside or inside dimensions?
by|Jul 10, 2024

Answer This Question

A:  If you have a curb mounted skylight, the closest size would be the 2246, which has an inside curb of 22.5" X 46.5" and an outside curb of 25.5" X 49.5". We offer this size in fixed, manual venting, solar venting, and electric venting.

by|Jul 10, 2024

    A:  VELUX FCM 2246, VCM 2246, VCE 2246 & VCS 2246 skylights use an inside curb (or rough opening) of 22.5" X 46.5" with an outside curb of 25.5" X 49.5". Measuring to the outer metal frame of the skylight would be 27 x 51 inches. Any of the above models mentioned would work great for your skylight project.

      Q:If I buy/install 3, is there a way to link all three blinds so they use 1 switch. This would be preferable, so I don't have to mount three switches on the wall takes up too much room.

      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  You can pair multiple blinds to one remote, but it will operate the blinds simultaneously. We offer a VELUX Touch remote (sold separately) that will allow for independent operation of all skylight/shades.

        by|Jan 16, 2024
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  Robert, the rough opening is the same as the inside curb 22 1/2 x 34 1/2. The outside curb dimension is 25 1/2 x 37 1/2. We appreciate your question and hope you enjoy your new curb mounted skylight. You will enjoy the light and the options you get from your solar powered shade.

          A:  VELUX Solar shades are stand alone and do not require wiring. Should the shade stop working, they can be moved manually. Thanks for your question Robo.

              Brighter and cleaner
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We replaced two dome shaped skylights with Velux skylights in the roof of our covered patio. We like how much brighter these skylights are.

                Replaced three and fit perfectly!
                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought these to replace my 15 year old VELUX skylights. They old ones did not leak... but since we were doing the roof, wanted new sky lights and a new warranty. We have them in fixed and solar! They fit in the old opening perfectly and had minimal disruption to interior sheetrock. I think they are upgraded to the previous design and look well made. We've had VELUX brand skylights in our home for 40 years! Our first ones had a crank and pole opener! Solar is great! Glad to have used a company around this long that makes the same sizes! My roofer said other companies (like Andersen) have stopped making skylights.

                Queen Bee, excellent photo! Solar is an excellent source of sustainable light and ventilation. You picked the perfect time to upgrade to solar and take advantage of the solar tax credit. We are thrilled we've been apart of your families home for decades! Thank you!

                      Received damaged product thrice
                      I am so disappointed with HomeDepot and this product. It's been 2 months I have ordered this and first one returned from a UPS facility saying broken piece showing status as delivered. No refund or update to me was sent. next 2 times it came with a broken solar blinder. Velux expert says it is broken. No good instruction is available on how to install such a pre assembled solar blind, looks easy, but the frame is defective, maybe returned pieces. The issue is still going on.

                        I’m a contractor so it was super easy to install and looks great. It was a big upgrade from the deck mounted velux skylight. That was there for 30 years.

                        Good Quality Product
                        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I recently had my cottage reroofed and replaced two existing skylights with two Velux fixed Skylights. They look great, are well constructed and look like they will hold up for a long time. The price was also very reasonable.

                          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Installed this past summer and I love the light it provides in our loft. Velux products are so well made and they stand behind their products. Wouldn't think of installing any other brand.

                            We purchased 4 replacement fixed skylights and they are awesome. The features have been improved over the years and they look sound amazing. So happy with the upgrade
