The VSS SOLAR skylight is the smart choice for visually expanding interiors with daylight, fresh air and sky views on remote control. 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.

  • Laminated, argon fill, double glazing with Low-E3 coating.
