Solar Protection

Solar Protection

Deepen your understanding of how the specialised glazing units of Vario by VELUX can effectively regulate indoor environments, minimise overheating, and manage light penetration.

Having too much heat or light enter through your rooflight can present as much of a problem as trying to keep heat in. Our solar control glazing offers efficient reduction of the heat from the sun. The human eye will easily compensate for the reduced light transmittance,  which is approx. 20% less than our LowE glazings. There will be no green/blue tint in the glazing, merely a darker luminance.
