It has an attractive polished-aluminium frame and is described as competitively priced for households when the weight and size of collector is less important. The glass is 4 mm thick for increased robustness. The overall size is 1160 x 1930 x 110 mm, with an absorber area of 2 m2. These collectors are suitable for pitched or flat roofs and can also be integrated within the roof itself.

No longer are they simply the domain of the very specialist heating engineer or the wealthiest homeowners. With their ease of installation, we believe our product range will enable more heating engineers to specify these products.’
