Today, we wish a happy 80th
birthday to Velux, the company that provides the roof light windows that have made so many of our own customers happy over the last 30 years.
On April 1st
, 1941, the Danish inventor Villum Kann Rasmussen started work on roof windows that have revolutionised the use of attic spaces throughout the world ever since. Armed with a passion for daylight, fresh air and a better living environment, still the underpinning values for Velux, he registered his first patent for a roof window just under a year later. Rasmussen coined the name Velux from 'Ve', being short for ventilation and 'lux', Latin for light.
You can be sure that when you specify a Velux product, whether it is a flat roof window, pitched roof window or dormer, hinged at the top or in the middle, with or without blinds, it will fit perfectly first time and open up a new vista of light and air to make your under-roof space more useful, comfortable and enjoyable.
Now, with operations in over 40 countries worldwide, millions of homes and workplaces have invested in Velux products to increase the usefulness of attic and flat roofed spaces.
