An attic that always overheated in the summer

The Zindel multi-family house in Beckenried with a roof-maisonette apartment with gallery was built in 1993 in the country style. As was common at the time, the roof windows were rather small due to local building regulations. The need for more daylight in the attic rooms became clear rather quickly so the owner decided to check if the roof windows could be expanded or enlarged.

Installation of VELUX ACTIVE for a pleasant indoor climate

The check revealed: Yes, there are some major improvements to be made.  Six windows were not just replaced, but extended so that significantly more daylight falls into the rooms.  All the new VELUX INTEGRA® windows are solar-powered. A whole row of windows provides plenty of light and the two VELUX CABRIO® roof windows, which converts to a small balcony in a few simple steps, providing more space and a great view.  The occupants are more than satisfied with the results. The rooms are filled with much more light and the views are a lot more expansive. 

Main benefits of getting VELUX roof windows

"The effect I was expecting from VELUX ACTIVE is 100% spot on what we got. I can leave the house without any worries and return to a pleasant indoor climate in the evening", says homeowner Thomas Zindel. "Installing VELUX ACTIVE took half an hour, max." Mrs. Zindel adds: VELUX ACTIVE is fascinating. The way that it works and the fact you can just rely on it. It’s genius!" Since installing the new roof windows and VELUX ACTIVE, the Zindels cherish the time they spend in the attic. It used to be nearly impossible in the summer due to the attic overheating.
