Solar Skylight - Pitched Roofs

The VSS Solar Skylight is great for bathrooms, kitchens, laundries and any rooms needing a daylight and fresh air transformation. It has a solar panel that captures available daylight and uses it to recharge a highly efficient, fully concealed battery powered operator and control system. This operator is the power source that opens and closes the skylight which removes the need for wiring.
