Solar Heating Guide for Architects & Builders
*

Viessmann flat panel and tubular solar collectors provide not only efficient and reliable solar water heating, but also create new aesthetic opportunities for building design. The systems can be imaginatively incorporated into modern architecture on top of a roof, on a wall or integrated into the roof line to minimise the design impact.

Intelligent alternatives to conventional concepts

Vacuum tube collectors provide interesting opportunities for new design concepts either as single units or as linked assemblies. The solar collectors are not just matched to the building, but are used as structural construction elements. The optical effect of these high performance collectors is striking with their coloured glass tubes providing instant visual impact.

A synthesis of functional and aesthetic design

Viessmann solar heating systems are very effective as wide projections or as freestanding structures. Whilst the collectors absorb solar energy, their lamellar structure can provide effective shade. Viessmann's range of collectors is versatile enough for any form of installation. The Vitosol 100 Flat panel collector provides perfect roof integration whilst the Vitosol 200 Vacuum tube collector can be installed on a flat roof, a wall, or on a balcony.


     

A range of colours in an attractive design

The Vitosol 100 Flat panel collector allows a perfect match between roof and solar collectors. The new edge trims help to create a harmonious transition from collector surface to roof. Upon request frame and edge trims can be provided in all RAL colours for a perfect match with the roof colour.
