Choosing the right glass



         Tempered glass - Recommended for in reach applications










                              Tempered glass (xx05)
                              If your skylight is within reach, our tempered
                              glass consists of a dual pane, triple-coated with
                              LowE3, dual-sealed and injected with argon gas.
                              This provides excellent energy efficiency and
                              thermal performance for year-round comfort.

         ENERGY STAR®


         Use of ENERGY STAR® products




         One of the most straightforward ways to meet
         the energy codes as a builder or architect, while
         still designing bright, airy buildings, is to use
         ENERGY STAR® certified products.


         Most VELUX products are ENERGY STAR® certified in all 50 states, which means
         that they meet strict energy efficiency standards set by the Environmental
         Protection Agency (EPA). ENERGY STAR® fenestration products must have
         their U-factor, Visible Transmittance, and Solar Heat Gain Coefficient tested and
         certified by the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) in order to qualify.

         By specifying or using ENERGY STAR® products, architects and builders can use
         more windows and skylights,  to bring much needed daylight and fresh air inside.
         Create more attractive buildings and more livable spaces while still meeting the
         local energy codes economically.

         In warmer climates, there is great potential for lighting energy savings using
         emerging control technologies in combination with more effective daylighting
         products like VELUX skylights and SUN TUNNEL™ skylights.
