Northlight 40-90°

Application

A roof light series for sloped, shed or saw tooth roofs. For commercial and public buildings.

Description

The system consists of prefabricated modular skylights, including profiles, panes, flashings, control systems for natural and smoke ventilation and roller blinds.


Similar to Long lights, North lights are bands of VELUX modular skylights.


Features and benefits:

  • Framing material ensures very low U-value.
  • Complete daylight and ventilation control.
  • Superior environmental profile compared to aluminium rooflights.
  • Slim profiles and flush exterior surface provide an elegant appearance.
  • Integrated chain actuator creates an identical look for fixed and venting modules.
  • Internal blinds complete the interior with a 'free-floating' design.
  • The characteristic upright design is primarily for installations that are directed towards the northern hemisphere for soft and reflected lighting.
  • North lights are ideal for galleries and museums as well as schools, offices and industrial facilities, where direct glare is unwanted. North light installations are applicable for pitch of 40–90°.


Operation:

Rooflights can be fixed, or openable to provide ventilation or smoke venting. Opening rooflights are operated by a chain actuator, concealed behind the bottom profile.
