Protecting the ceiling from the heat: VELUX solutions

We still often hear about ceilings, which are very hot in summer, where it is almost impossible to sleep at night. But with the right heat protection, you no longer have to worry: VELUX has investigated several solutions that provide effective protection against incoming heat during the summer period.

Many people are not aware of the important role that window accessories, such as awnings, play in keeping a cool environment: To prevent the heat from penetrating, you need external protections that prevent the heat from overheating the glass and keep the room more fresh.

The function of VELUX external protections is to block the sun’s rays before they reach the window pane, and to prevent heat from entering the room.

Before deciding on the most suitable option, consider what your needs are and what you want to achieve with an exterior curtain, as well as avoid the heat: dark room or have natural light and external view during the day, filter the light, have an easy to install product.

Daylight without heat

In every room in the attic, such as the living room, the kitchen, the children’s room, daylight is essential. VELUX awning curtains not only provide heat protection, they also help keep the room comfortably bright.

The transparent fabric reduces the penetration of heat from the sun’s rays by up to 76%, to get a cool and comfortable internal temperature and at the same time allows you to see from the outside and let in the light. This factor is important, for example, when children play or do their homework.

VELUX awning curtains are available in manual, electric or solar cell versions.
