Recycled Materials

VELUX America manufactures products that are 100% recyclable containing aluminum extrusions with 95% post-consumer recycled material, glass with 60-65% recycled content by weight and packaging that has 53% recycled content. VELUX LightBlock™ Shades also have 15% pre-consumer vinyl content. Our post-production recycling program sends 100% of copper, aluminum, PVC, Santoprene, and acrylic to be recycled. In addition, 100% of wood waste is either reclaimed for use as animal bedding and palletized fuel  or incorporated back into the product in lesser form.
