VELUX Centre Pivot Burglary Resistant Windows

A strengthened roof window design keeps your home extra secure.

Breaking and entering through a roof window is extremely rare, and shouldn’t keep you awake at night. Only if the roof slope and location of your roof window allows easy access for persons to work safely and unseen, it could be deemed wise to consider a security upgrade.

The centre-pivot GGL/GGU 70Q VELUX®  roof window offers the highest burglary resistance class on the roof window market (class 2 acc. to burglar resistance requirements and classification standard EN 1627), hosting an array of security features that will help dissuade anyone from trying to break or dismantle the roof window. The GGL/GGU 70Q is the ultimate choice in terms of burglary resistant roof windows. 


Discreet Locks

An extremely sturdy design with strong, discreet locks in the frame and sash makes the GGL/GGU 70Q exceptionally resilient as well as aesthetically pleasing.

The key is designed to be placed on the handle bar for your convenience


Thermo-modified wood

Compared to standard GGU windows, the GGU 70Q has an extra strong core of thermo-modified wood under the seamless PU coating

VELUX 70Q Security
Reinforcement of the hinges

The construction is further strengthened with screw bolts and nuts on the hinges

Extra-long anti-theft screws

The wooden variant GGL 70Q, available in white-paint or clear lacquer, is strengthened with reinforcement screws in the frame and sash. (Same strength obtain maintenance free variant GGU without reinforcement screws)

Preventing the removal of window pane

The pane is glued to the sash and thus disallows anyone from forcing an entry by dismantling the window-pane assembly.

Natural ventilation

Let fresh air into your home even when you are away or sleeping, without having to worry about security or bad weather. Pull the unique top control bar once and you will allow fresh, filtered air to enter through the ventilation flap.  This is a standard feature not only on the 70Q but on all centre pivot and top hung VELUX®   windows.

Achieve the highest burglar resistance classification

EN 1627 class 2 is the highest burglar resistance classification obtained on the roof window market.

The use of laminated security glazing, complies with security standard EN 356, class P4A, is tested and classified standard for resistance against manual attack. 

Class P4A means that the glazing can endure the effect of a 4.1 kg steel ball being dropped three times directly onto the surface from nine meters. Thats the equivelent of dropping this 4kg kettle bell from the top of 2 giraffes 3 times but VELUX®  used a slightly more accurate system to prove this feature.
