Velux

Fifty years ago, the Danish brand Velux arrived in France with a unique offer: a window specially designed for attics. Thanks to it, we could finally transform our attics into living rooms that are comfortable and bright.

The innovation of the Velux roof window

In 1964, Velux moved to Bagneux. The Danish group, founded in 1942, invented a wooden roof window with a large window, which is rotated with a bar at the top. Until then, the attics were blind or just lit by a skylight or a skylight, narrow and inconvenient to handle. In a France won by the boom in the construction of single-family houses, it's a small revolution: converting the attic into real living rooms, bright and airy, is finally possible.

Evolution: the question of comfort in summer

Very quickly the question of comfort in summer: under the roofs, it suffocates when the sun is hot ... Velux then gives its windows a sun protection that stops 77% of the heat. Phew! In 2008, the launch of the "All Comfort" window divides the sound of the rain by two. So many innovations that remove the brakes to the development of the attic. Today, the trend is to install two or four windows side by side, like glass. Because, under the roofs, the uses have changed: formerly devolved to the room, the attic now welcome spaces of leisure or work. Light, ventilation and the view of the sky are essential ...

Maximum brightness. Windows with rotation "All comfort" (609,60 euros one).

The new generation signed Velux to better isolate

Launched last year, it shows 20% less energy losses in winter thanks to a better isolated environment. It has also been refined to leave more room for glazing, so the light. And then there is the motorized window "Integra" with its digital tablet touch remote control. It opens and closes remotely according to predefined programs ("Wake up", "When I leave", "Ventilation", etc.). A must, especially for windows that are difficult to access.
