KITELEYS for skylights and skytubes

You don’t need huge rooms to make your house feel light and airy.

You just need more light and air!

KITELEYS can help bring more natural light into your home and advise you on the best options for
ventilation.

Let the sun shine in

A well-placed skylight or skytube can make an ordinary room an extraordinary room.

What’s more, a top-quality skylight or tube, installed by the experts at KITELEYS, can be a stunning design feature.

These windows to the sun can be incorporated into most new designs, or be used to transform existing homes.

Keep fire and rain at bay

These products are made for Australian conditions.

As you would expect, that means they fit within bushfire regulations.

Velux High Performance skylights are approved for use in buildings in bushfire prone areas (AS3959), and are compliant to Bushfire Attack Level 40 (BAL 40). Watch this video from Velux to learn more.

And, while there are no specific building regulations for hail resistance, Velux skylights have been rigorously tested and are shown to resist hail damage. To find out just how strong these products are, watch this video.

Opening skylights – a natural way to cool your home

KITELEYS offers three types of opening skylights – solar, electric or manual.
