CXP - Flat Roof Exit Skylights
Toronto & GTA
If you are looking for a great way to amp the décor and value of your home or office, you should consider installing a skylight. Skylights are like windows in your roof that light up your space with sun rays and allow fresh air to enter and circulate the inner environment. They come in a variety of models with different perks such as remote controls, rain sensors, extra-strong flashing systems, and so on.
For a while, skylights were only available for homes with elevated roofs, but now, homes with flat and low-pitched roofs can be retrofitted with skylight models known as VELUX Flat Roof Skylights. These skylights feature a creative, but simple design that allows them to fit perfectly on flat roofs and perform the same functions as the other models.
Flat Roof Skylights in turn, also come in about three models with different roof applications and unique features. One of them is the VELUX CXP Flat Roof Exit Skylight model and it is a great skylight option for you. It not only gives you amazing sights of the sun during the day, and the stars at night, but also allows venting of your home by releasing warm, damp air, and letting in cool, soothing air.

Accessories for CXP Flat Roof Exit Skylights
On really sunny days, you may experience excess sun rays passing through the skylight into your room. This can cause some vision problems, especially if you look up or when you’re working on a computer. This level of intensity will eventually lead to overheating the inner environment, and you might find yourself sweating profusely. Don’t forget that the effects of UV radiation over time can also cause skin burns, acne, and other skin issues, as well as the degradation of objects like chairs, tables, and computers. Before this becomes your story, we recommend that you retrofit your flat roof exit skylights with some awning blinds.
Blinds are typically attached to the skylight domes internally or externally, but no matter their positions, they will reduce the intensity of sun rays directly entering your space. Depending on the model, awning blinds can be automatic in their operations, that is, they cover the dome when their photovoltaic panels are triggered by intense solar radiation. You can also operate blinds using remote controls, while some models possess both features.
Awning blinds require no electrical work to install because they run on solar batteries. Plus, they come in various designs and sizes to fit a wide variety of home décor.
