Questions & Answers

Open past the venting position

If the powered actuator arm is disconnected, can the skylight be manually opened past the venting position to allow a person to climb through? Does the hinge open that far?
Asked by: JB
Thank you for the replies! The roof is fairly flat So I am not worried about it sliding off. I think 45 degrees is enough to get through if needed. Just curious, is there terminology for an "accessible skylight" that is designed to allow someone to climb through. I think this product will work for me

Does "curb mounted" mean a curb must be built on-site to accommodate the skylight, or is the "curb" already part of the skylight?
Asked by: Mark
The curb is not included.

22-1/2 in. x 46-1/2 in. Solar Powered Fresh Air Venting Curb-Mount Skylight with Laminated Low-E3 Glass is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 16.

I didn't think I wanted a skylight that vented, but now that I have one, I so happy with it! Opening the window allows all the hot air to escape and the temperature inside is immediately cooler. It allows my air conditioner to do a better job without having to work so hard. The blinds are a great addition and the remote is programmable so I can set it and forget it. I can't wait for the next rain so I can stand inside and watch the rain drops fall on the glass! The only issue I had with it involved the installation. It wasn't clear how to open the window until we called customer service. It is necessary to open the window prior to installation, since the manual and clips were inside under the glass but on top of the screen. Clearer written instructions should have been provided or the manual shouldn't have been placed inside prior to packaging.

The Velux skylight fit perfectly and was simple to install. The skylight is in the kitchen and that room has limited venting options, mainly a sliding door to outside. The venting skylight is very effective. The control is easy to use and intuitive. Does exactly what we wanted. The 30% tax credit helps.

I'm a DYIer ,most important use the flashing kit for the extra $95.00,built the curb and wrap in waterproof membrane.The skylight sets on top and attaches with 12 screws.Control set up was simple,and I'm an old guy not computer savvy .Tested rain sensor,works great.Highly recommend Velux products,Remember you get what you pay for!

So far so good.No need to power line the device and the skylight is controlled by a wireless remote that can control multiple skylights! Makes we want 5 more skylights. VELUX said rechargeable battery can be replaced, so no concern about long term functioning. Also, I believe 30% fed tax credit.

The solar-powered operation works well and was perfect for our application in a vaulted ceiling where running power would have been extremely difficult (and expensive).
