Flat Pack VELUX Base flashings for metal roof coverings - All you need to know!
It's important to recognise that VELUX does not manufacture a flashing system to suit metal roof coverings, VELUX is a European brand hailing from Denmark. In these parts of the world metal roof coverings are non-existent unlike Australia's obsession with colorbond steel! Therefore a Metal roof flashing does not come with your VELUX skylight. If you have a metal roof such as Corrugated, Trim deck or Klip Lock, we have developed the flashing system you are after which comes as a Flat pack or pre assembled.
What is a Flat Pack Flashing System?
The Skylight Warehouse flat pack flashing system is a type of flashing that is designed for VELUX Skylights. It consists of a series of pre-cut and pre-formed pieces of flashing that can be easily assembled to fit the specific size and configuration of the skylight.
The system has 4 pieces, front, left side, right side and back and is designed to be easy to install, with step-by-step instructions included in the kit. The pieces of flashing are pre cut to suit the skylight specified.
