The brilliantly simple FCM flat roof skylight incorporates the VELUX High performance laminated glazing unit and an all metal exterior frame.The  smooth exterior gives not only a lower profile on the roof, but also provides a “cool” daylighting solution by effectively blocking heat build up and UV rays. Huge benefits at a fraction of the price you would expect.

  • Laminated glass will not fade or discolour over time - unlike acrylic or polycarbonate.
  • Available in 10 sizes
  • Maintenance-free anodized heavy-gauge aluminium frame withstands the extremes of the Australian climate.
