The installation of Vario by VELUX bespoke rooflights is intuitive and straight forward. All manuals and step-guides are available.
Before placing the upstand on the roof, a secure installation requires proper cleaning of all surfaces and application of adhesive silicone where the upstand will be positioned (must be purchased separately). To fix the upstand / kerb to the roof, suitable installation brackets should be purchased separately. Most installations will need 4-6 flat- or L-brackets.Depending on the roofing material used, it can be necessary to apply arris rails around the upstand, to ensure that the roofing material is not bent more than 45°.
Roofing materials that are suitable for Vario by VELUX Rooflights:
- Roofing felt
- Fibre glass (GRP)
- Rubber membrane (EPDM)
- Standing seam
After having weathered the upstand with the applicable roofing material, the supplied flashings for Vario by VELUX rooflights will ensure that driving rain will be directed away from the rooflight. What is more, the included flashing kit ensures that the roofing material stays in place after an installer has "dressed" the rooflight
