The Step Longlight/Ridgelight is our new design opportunity with VELUX modular skylights. The unique joint bracket system and step flashing makes it possible to connect several rows of skylights above each other and to create an atrium with maximum daylight.

Due to hidden actuators, the venting modules appear identical to fixed modules when closed, creating a sleek and uniform aesthetic. Factory-finished flashings between each row ensure effective drainage of water from the roof. The installation of the new Step Solution creates vibrant spaces and openness with natural light in, for instance, public buildings.
