Velux’s new minimalist shutters were designed to ensure they can fit harmoniously into a building, with the photovoltaic solar cell integrated into the upper section to ensure a flush finish. The energy from the sun collected by the cell powers the roller shutter, improving comfort and protection, while using clean, renewable energy. Such shutters are also easy and quick to install. They can be added to any Velux windows, regardless of when they were manufactured, without any building work or electrical changes required. This makes them ideal not only for new builds, but also for any refurbishments.
Combining roof windows with a Velux roller shutter significantly improves thermal performance, cutting heat intake by 95% in summer and reducing heat loss by 27% in winter.
