The VSE must be installed between 15 & 90 degrees. If your roof pitch is less than 15 degrees, you must use a custom flashing kit with a pitch adapter.

Our flashing kits are engineered with specific pitch requirements. The roof pitch is important because it ensures that the roof has the proper slope to effectively drain water off of both the flashing and the skylight.

The frame out size is the width and height of the Skylight. The clearance between rafters must be at least width of the Skylight, battens are then placed at a distance equal to the height of the Skylight.

Electric skylights cannot be installed sideways, however a 'landscape' size is available (S01 size: 1140x700).

VELUX COMBI-FLASHING is engineered for this purpose. However, the pitch of the roof must be 15° or greater.

The VSE comes standard with our 'High Performance' glazing. This glazing provides a laminated internal pane to meet Australian Standard AS 1288, which is required for skylights installed greater than 3m above floor level. This glazing also comes with NEAT™ coating to reduce cleaning frequency.
