Tubular skylight for 60 deg pitched roof


Hello all,

We have a really steep roof (old, simple-style Victorian house) and would like to put a tubular skylight in. The problem is that I could only find models warranted up to 12:12 pitch, which translates to 45deg. Our roof is around 55-60 deg. Does anybody know a manufacturer that makes and warrants tube skylights for such roofs? Ideally I would like to have something inconspicuous like a flat roof dome that doesn't stick out like a chimney. Thanks a lot, Christoph

Tubular skylight for 60 deg pitched roof


Wow, I had checked the Velux tunnels earlier and for whqtever reason I had found specs stating their limit is 12:12. Well, thanks for making me check again :-) They even have a low profile version for 20:12, exactly whqt I wanted.

Thanks again, Christoph
