Dimplex now offers a high-efficiency evacuated-tube solar collect as part of its solar-thermal range for heating water. These direct-flow collectors are designed for commercial and domestic installations and have been specifically designed to give excellent year-round performance in northern-European climates. A vacuum inside the tubes insulates against heat loss caused by cold, wet and windy weather.

Collectors are available with 20 or 30 tubes and can be mounted horizontally, vertically or on flat roofs and facades. Tubes can be rotated to achieve optimal alignment.

Plug-in connection of the tubes makes for quick installation, easy replacement and standard tube spacing.

They qualify for the Renewable Heat Incentive.
