Fakro Manual Opening

If you require extra light and additional ventilation in your home, get it the natural way with a Fakro Manual Opening Skylight. Fakro Manual Opening skylights are easily operated whether they are installed within reach or out of reach and come standard with insect screens, allowing you to enjoy the light and fresh air, bug and mosquito free. The insect screens can also be easily removed for the purpose of cleaning.

These Skylights offer maximum ventilation and light that allow hot air to escape and fresh, cooling breezes to flow into the home.

Manual Opening Skylights are perfect in rooms where air humidity and moisture levels can build up. They are complete with a factory fitted insect screen that can be easily removed for cleaning purposes. They can be operated by a telescopic control rod when out-of-reach, or a small crank handle for within reach applications.
