Sun Tunnel - Pitched Roofs Rigid TWR / TLR

  • Use where ceiling to roof distance is between 900-6000mm
  • Standard length is 1700mm extendable to 6000mm using ZTR extension pieces      
  • Flat roof module with 4 mm toughened glass and a removable sash
  • Glass has an easy to clean coating on the outside
  • Integral flashing for profiled metal or tile roofing (TWR) or shingle or slate (TLR)
Scope of Use
  • Velux sun tunnels for pitched roofs can be installed in roofs with 15° to 60° pitches
