Take advantage of sunlight with a SOLARFOCUS CPC solar panel collector. Transform the sun’s rays into free heat for your premises to reduce your energy costs and impact on the environment. Our solar CPC collectors can be used all year round and are especially effective in the spring and autumn, when the sun’s rays fall at a low angle.
Different sizes of CPC solar collector are available to suit all applications. A system lifetime of 25 years and the ability to supply at least 70% of domestic hot water requirements makes solar CPC collectors an investment in the future of your home and the environment.

Why the structure of the collector should be important to you: because environmental influences such as wind, rain, dirt, UV radiation, snow loads and extreme variations in temperature are active on the collector over a period of decades.
The CPC is sealed, the flat collector ventilated – why?
As a result of the sealed construction of the CPC collector together with the collector valve, a negative pressure of up to 0.3 bar can arise inside the collector. The forces created would be enough to shatter the glass (implosion).
But as the glass is supported on the reflector in the CPC collector, these loads are no problem.
A flat collector needs ventilation to allow gas emission from the mineral wool insulation and condensation to escape.
In addition to this, there is no support (reflector) for the glass on the flat collector, so that under negative pressure, the glass would be drawn inwards and break
