Enjoy space in your attic with a Velux solar roller shutter.

Very easy to install from the inside of the attic, the Velux solar roller shutter works thanks to an electric motor powered by a battery located in the boot of the shutter. This battery is connected to a photovoltaic cell that captures solar energy and transforms it into electricity. Thus, the shutter works independently, regardless of brightness.
