Velux Blinds: A brief history.
In 1941 Villum Kann Rasmussen, aware of a national shortage
of living space in his homeland of Denmark, realised there was
an opportunity for developing attic space into cheap living
accommodation and he developed a roof window to let in natural
daylight, and VELUX was born. However, the first Velux roof
window ever made was installed in a Danish school.
The Velux name is derived from the words Ventilation and Lux,
the latter word being Latin for light.
The VELUX active window system with blinds and roller shutters
is a complete system, offering a solution for low energy and
optimised indoor comfort. This is achieved by automatic control
of natural ventilation, sunscreening, passive solar gains during
the day and added insulation during night.
Energy Savings with VELUX blinds and roller shutters Installing
VELUX blinds and roller shutters to your roof window is an easy
way of reducing heat loss and thus lowering your heating bill.
And in addition you get all the well-known benefits of a blind
or a roller shutter that matches your window perfectly and is
so easy to install.
With a lowered blind or roller shutter you create an air buffer
between pane and curtain that provides additional insulation.
The reduction of heat loss obtained depends on pane type as
well as on the type of blind or roller shutter fitted to the
window. With roller shutters, blackout blinds and double pleated
blinds you obtain the best possible reduction of heat loss when
fitted to a roof window with a standard 00-pane – then the reduction
is up to 30%.
