Solar Collectors


What is so unique about Austral’s Solar Collector?

With decades of experience under our belt, we know what works and what doesn’t and we’ve built the most efficient and effective Solar Collector in the industry. Our large bore collectors have a unique design that allows more heat to be trapped – not only does this increase the sun catchment area to 130% but it also increases the volume capacity of the unit to a massive 250%! Simply put, our large bore collectors are able to heat large volumes of water quicker than anything else out there and we can do it at a fraction of the cost of powered systems.

Sticky Solutions

The collector material has a unique fluted base which provides a lager surface area. When the Solar Collector is glued to the roof using a Polyurethane adhesive the glue enters the groves which locks the collector into place. We have also gone to the extent of engineered our own barb and grommets to provide a leak free connection which couldn’t be guaranteed with off the shelf products.

Collector-verticalOur Design

Austral Solar’s unique design allows more heat can be harnessed and the large bore collector also prevents blockages which often render small bore collectors useless.

At Austral Solar we have carried out a series of trials and experiments to determine the best materials and colours for solar collection and have determined that black collector materials are by the far the most efficient in absorbing energy.

Many companies provide coloured and dual coloured extrusions which simply are not as efficient or practical in all applications. Coloured pigments have a tendency to migrate from the collector material over time and dual colour extrusions have been known to de-laminate all of which contribute to a reduced life expectancy and efficiency of the collector.
