Answer

That maybe possible, but very unlikely. The GXU roof window has a locking control arm that is activated when you push the sash to the end of its travel and it will stay there. Once back inside, push it outward a bit further and it will release.

Solid design and engineering
Customer review from whyskylights.com logo
We needed a roof exit in our tiny home to reach the roof deck. The size, easy exit and re-entry, and excellent design to ensure it was waterproof was key in our decision

Dependable and terrifically engineered
Customer review from whyskylights.com logo
We have just installed two Center Pivot Roof windows to replace the same which we installed in our house 33 years ago. The original windows had never leaked or failed to operate properly. Replacement was necessary only because, understandably, after all these year and a harsh southern exposure, the glass fogged between the double glazing. It was very satisfying to see not only that the exact replacement was still available, but also to find that the design and engineering, if anything, have been improved. Replacement was a breeze and we look forward to another 30 years or better of satisfactory service.

The skylight is heavier than I thought to open. Quality is great but the flashing kit(s) needs to be better explained and spelled out for all roof types. I had to order a specific extra flashing kit due to my roof type from a different vendor.

Excellent quality and stylish appearance
Customer review from whyskylights.com logo
I bought 4 roof windows for two areas of our home. The quality of the windows is outstanding, closing and tight and sealing properly. The styling of window, blind and hardware is upscale and to the appearance of the rooms.

Its a quality built in to the product every time
Customer review from veluxusa.com logo
I have been a carpenter for over 40 years. I have installed many competitors products that can't come close to what velux has achieved. The roof window, no matter what model, is a win win. They take the guess work out of flashing and make it simple. The unit comes with a pre-bent flashing kit that goes together like a simple puzzle. That makes your install that much more enjoyable. The only down side is that their product is not protected well, especially during shipping. The face of the unit only has two strips of foam, at the top & bottom. They should have a full piece of foam to cover the entire face of the unit because that's the most vulnerable. All aside you will be very pleased with your purchase.

Seems very well made!
Customer review from whyskylights.com logo
Seems very well made and stylish... knocked off one start, as it is heavy to close and also wished there was an option to keep the window partially opened instead of just having a small air gap. On the other hand, it's an egress skylight, so maybe that's why it's made that way.

RE: Mary Jane's post
Customer review from veluxusa.com logo
Not sure what Mary Jane was expecting from Velux. Roofs are hot, direct sun is hot. Her dealer should have told her, in my opinion. Velux can't control where a window is installed. I have two GGL-1 skylites from 1984 and still love them.

The Best Quality Skylight!
Customer review from veluxusa.com logo
We installed a pivot skylight when we built our house in 1980, it’s still looks magnificient & makes a great statement. The only issue we’ve had is the shade bracket broke recently. The screen for the bugs is needed but not very attractive. However the skylight has never leaked, now our roofer wants to replace it! I’m confused “why” can’t the shade & screen be replaced?

Response from Customer ServiceOctober 1, 2018
It is possible to obtain a new insect screen and shade for this older pivoting roof window by contacting VELUX directly. Although, I do believe your roofer was looking out for your best interest by making this recommendation. VELUX skylights and roof windows are more energy efficient than they were in the 1980's and the recent redesign gives you more viewable glass area within the same footprint.
