Install a Velux® Solar Roller Shutter

A solar roller shutter makes it possible both to manage the night-time blindness of the roof window with shutter, to prevent overheating of the room lit by strong sunshine or to isolate it from the cold, and to attenuate the noise of a heavy rain on the glazing. He is also involved in improving safety. Its assembly can be done in one hour only. It works thanks to its photovoltaic cell capturing the solar energy transformed into electricity accumulated in the battery located in the trunk, whatever the luminosity, in a completely autonomous way. No wired electrical installation is necessary. It is animated by a remote control.
