Dimplex solar kits "make installation easier"

Published:  21 April, 2010

Dimplex is launching a new range of solar kits with features intended to make installation easier and quicker.

An aluminium absorber sheet gives optimum heat transfer combined with low weight, while double o-ring push fit pipe connections and flexible insulated stainless steel hoses allow rapid installation by a roofer, leaving the pipes in the loft ready for the plumber to connect at a later stage.

Each 2 metres2 collector plate has a gross collector area of 2.15 metres2, providing improved performance over SAP default scores. The new o-ring connections allow up to 10 panels to be connected in series for larger projects, for a total collector area of 21.5 metres2.

Integrated roof mounting is available for a sleek profile while an add-on flashing kit will conceal pipework going into the roof. Other options include on-roof mounting for slate, flat tile or corrugated tiled roofs, with a freestanding option for ground or flat roof installation. 

The panels and roofing kits can be installed either portrait or landscape using the same roof fixing brackets.
