About This Product

This VELUX VCM manual Fresh Airskylight 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. The room darkening shade 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. Venting skylights can be opened to create a chimney effect, drawing air upward to improve air quality within your home. This model can be installed on a site-built curb on a flat roof or up to a 60° roof pitch.


  • 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
  • Ideal for replacing existing curb mount skylights, including old plastic bubble skylights
  • VCM 2246 models are designed to fit a site-built curb (not included) with outside dimensions 25-1/2 in. x 49-1/2 in.
  • 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
  • Insect screen and handheld remote control are included
  • 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 and can operate multiple skylights

      Beautiful window
      We got a new roof last summer and purchased a roof window that opens manually. It has been working great! We love the design and ease with opening and closing the window. Velux makes great windows, highly recommended.

        So far, so VERY good!
        Installation has just been completed. The new skylights add so much more light and, now, also much-needed ventilation into the rooms. They open easily. The look is clean, crisp and contemporary. Very nice!

          Great addition to the house
          I just bought them and installed. That’s the best investment bought rooms( kitchen and sunny room) are very bright and when you open skylights a lot of fresh air and quick ventilation.

            Beautiful addition to my home
            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I am just in the middle of renovating my house and decided to go the extra mile and put in the skylights. I am so glad i did. They bring so much light into the rooms. I love that the blinds are solar powered too and can use the remote to open and close them. Great product.
              High quality with power shade
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have had three of these for 10 years with no problems or leaks. Just installed two more with flashing kt, installed and then tons of rain for a week and not a drop of water inside. Also purchased the blinds for these and I;ve mever been so impressed (50 years in the construction business). They fit in perfectly, run with a solar powered motor and a wall remote, the fit was perfect with no issues and they work flawlessly. I would not purchase any other manufacturer.

                New bright skylights
                Replaced old skylights. Had Velux products before so had great experience with the band. New skylights look amazing. They’re bright & give the room an airy feel. Easy to open. Satisfied customer!

                  Love my new skylights
                  Just got done replacing my 8 existing skylights with New Velux units that come with preinstalled solar shades. This combo qualifies for a 30% federal tax credit which brings the cost below the Fixed Skylight cost without the shades. I can't wait to reap the savings on my utility bills too! Skylight were installed by my local Velux dealer who did a wonderful job.

                  We know that you will enjoy these new skylights for many years to come. Reducing your overall costs with the 30% Federal Tax Credit eligibility just adds to the enjoyment!

                    Love The Light and Fresh Air
                    Had to replace four 30+ year old Velux skylights due to hail damage- two manual operation and two fixed. Love the new clean white interior appearance of the skylights, and ease of operation of the operable units. Looking forward to many more years of Velux bringing us natural light and fresh air!

                      Really quite lovey
                      I have a sunroom that had 3 very, very old skylights, which were starting to leak. My roof installer put in Velux Fresh Air Skylights as replacements. The glass is so clear, and they look lovely from inside and out. My only qualm is that the screens have a bit of a gap on each side, and I'm afraid little bugs will gain entry. Other than that, they're great!

                        Great but for one thing
                        We had these skylights installed to replace very old ones. We chose hand operated ones and, while they work fine, wish Velux had used a crank rather that a turning screw to open and close the skylight. We also chose the solar-powered shade and are very pleased. The reason I gave it a 4 is because of the "screw."
                        Response from Customer ServiceJun 6, 2022
                        We are happy to hear that you are enjoying your new skylights and would like to help you with the operational aspects of this model. If this skylight is within your reach, you can remove the eyelet and use the ZZZ 201B crank handle to easily open it! Please call VELUX Customer Service @ 1-800-888-3589 as it is $11 (plus tax & shipping) You will have this in a few days and be able to enjoy your skylight a bit better!
