Multiple rows of skylight modules connected create a large glass roof

As the product name indicates, the new VELUX Step Solution has a unique step structure where multiple rows of skylight modules can be connected above each other to create a large glass roof. It is characterized by a minimalistic design with a coherent and elegant structure that allows for thin supporting beams.

We designed the VELUX Step Solution to offer our customers a solution with maximum daylight for larger glazed areas. We have thereby expanded our product range from modules installed side by side to this unique step structure. Our mounting system connects the modules closer, and the flashings ensure a watertight solution in the elegant VELUX Modular Skylights design,
explains global R&D Director, VELUX Commercial, Erik Kjærgaard.

The new VELUX Step Solution is a technologically advanced product, specifically suited to commercial and public buildings, both new build and refurbishment.
