About the VELUX Group & the Heritage conservation roof window

For more than 80 years, the VELUX Group has created better living environments for people around the world; making the most of daylight and fresh air through the roof. Our product programme includes roof windows and modular skylights, decorative blinds, sun screening products and roller shutters, as well as installation and smart home solutions.

The new VELUX Heritage conservation roof window has been co-created with conservation officers and architects to ensure that it complies with the design requirements for historic, heritage and conservation buildings, while at the same time meeting the standards of modern living with its high thermal performance glazing. The glazing comes with premium features like safety lamination, an easy-to-clean coating and compatibility with blinds for extra comfort and light control, and seamless integration with the roof. The slim, black exterior of the roof window sits flush and blends beautifully into the roofing materials, while its glass-to-edge technology lets in as much daylight as possible. The roof window’s aesthetics resemble those of old cast iron windows, and it utilizes the original hand winder for natural ventilation.   The Heritage conservation roof window is available in nine different sizes to match all types of retrofitting or roofing projects.
