If a roof window is placed out-of-reach or, for ultimate comfort, a VELUX INTEGRA® roof window is the answer. It comes with a pre-paired wall switch to control the window and accessories. Choose either electric or solar powered roof windows. For solar powered there’s no need to plug into a power supply, making installation even quicker and easier. The PV solar cell is placed on the external window frame.

To clean the outer pane, rotate the sash 180 degrees. The sash must be secured in position by sliding the barrel bolt into the bushing at the bottom of the side frame. The air filter can be removed and washed with ordinary household cleaners. Fully rotate and secure the window in cleaning position, then remove the filter from the filter rail.

To prolong the longevity of VELUX roof windows or simply give them a touch up, VELUX offers a range of products that will come in handy for replacing air filters, repairing a scratch, lubricating hinges or painting the window to give it a new and shiny look.
