Our range of solar hot water systems use the Australian-developed glass vacuum tube technology, which delivers efficiencies 40% greater than flat-plate solar collectors. This design collects energy more consistently during the day. With the system facing north, the suns rays strike the glass tubes at right angles throughout the day. Flat plate collectors have only a brief period around midday when the sun is at right angles. The glass tubes have double walls, with a vacuum in between. This allows the entry of solar energy, but restricts any losses, so that more heat energy is captured and retained.
The glass is toughened during manufacture, and the tubes are rated to withstand high impact at right angles.
All metal parts are corrosion-resistant stainless steel, and the system carries a 5-year Warranty against defects in manufacturing and workmanship.
