Why Choose Keylite?

Keylite’s lower U-Value means better thermal efficiency. Skylights face the sky, exposing them to the elements five times more than a standard window. Hence, the U-Value is crucial in choosing a skylight.

Keylite includes a thermal collar as standard, eliminating gaps that cause significant thermal loss.

Keylite skylights feature a fully painted, semi-gloss solid timber frame, protecting it from weathering even when the sash is open. In contrast, VELUX frames are only primed internally, leaving them vulnerable.

Keylite’s unique quick fit brackets simplify installation and ensure the skylight sits lower in the roof, enhancing exterior aesthetics.

Keylite offers a 36db sound reduction compared to VELUX’s 32db, thanks to its thicker glass and larger Argon void section.

Just the Facts ! !

For superior thermal performance, sound reduction, and ease of installation, Keylite outperforms VELUX. Make a smarter choice for your home.
Buy better, buy Keylite!
