Sunbather Suntube-2 rigid solar panel system
The Suntube-2 rigid solar panel system from Sunbather was developed specifically for the harsh Australian climate and the huge demand placed on solar collector materials and pipework. Located on the roof, solar collector tubes are usually exposed to the elements and at risk of damage from fallen branches, birds and even small rodents.
Whereas standard systems use simple inserts to connect collector tubes to the header pipes, Suntube-2 connections are secured, totally encased and sheathed — making them at least three times more secure than a simple insert. The pipework connections are also designed and built to ensure there is no chance of leakage, featuring triple seals and a patented cam-lock.
Suntube-2’s patented roof clamps remove the need to penetrate roof tiles, further reducing the risk of leaks. Located at the top and bottom of each panel, the clamps feature a rod that slides under the tile and attaches directly to the batten. The top clamp features an expansion chart and widened slot, allowing the panel to remain firmly in place while it expands and contracts with temperature changes.
All panels come in standard 600 mm width and can be ordered in five standard lengths (1200, 1800, 2400, 3300 and 4200 mm). Other lengths can be custom-ordered.
