Worcester Solar-Lifestyle flat plate collectors are designed to provide a high level of efficiency and versatility for the majority of homeowners’ requirements. The flat plate collectors incorporate an absorber plate which heats up when exposed to solar energy. This heat is then transferred to a liquid circulating through the collector, which in turn transfers the heat to the water in the hot water tank. Solar Lifestyle collectors utilise. a PVD aluminium full sheet absorber plate which is ultrasonically welded to a harp absorber copper pipe to collect the solar radiation.
Solar-Lifestyle collectors feature a modern, visually stunning one-piece panel design. They are available in portrait and landscape formats to suit the space available in a wide range of circumstances and can be sited in or on a pitched roof, mounted at an angle on a flat roof or fixed to a façade.
Solar-Lifestyle panels offer industry-leading low heat loss for a flat plate collector meaning collector efficiency is optimised for retaining useful heat. The flat plate design has higher zero losses than evacuated tubes, which means they are more efficient at collecting heat from the moment the sun starts to shine.
