Heliocol’s engineered design is unique among solar collectors, making it the most innovative solar pool heating system in the world.
Individual Tube Design
Heliocol’s one-of-a-kind individual tube design is one of the most significant reasons why Heliocol is the finest solar pool heating system on Earth. Most solar pool heating panels use a webbed tube design, meaning the tubes are connected together in a solid plate. Individual tubes are better for several reasons:
Individual Tubes Protect Your Roof and Prevent Roof Rot
Unlike webbed collectors, which trap debris and moisture, Heliocol panels allow your roof to breathe. Heliocol’s individual tube design allows for proper evaporation of rain and is the ONLY solar panel appropriate for flat roofs.
Individual Tubes Create More Heat than Other Panels
Round tubes are the most efficient means of absorbing the sun’s energy. Heliocol’s patented individual tube design allows for maximum absorption of the sun’s heat all day long unlike other panels, which are most efficient only at solar noon.
Individual Tubes Do Not Create Lift
Other solar panels use webbing between their tubes; this creates lift. To prevent their panels from flying away, our competitors must use straps to hold their panels in place. Straps mean more holes in your roof and greater potential for leaks. Heliocol solar panels create no lift and require no straps!
Heliocol’s patented Gator Clamp eliminates the need for straps and is the only mounting system that allows for natural expansion and contraction. This exclusive system eliminates tearing and pulling at the roof typical of glued systems. The Gator Clamp makes Heliocol the most roof-friendly system in the world.
Other manufacturers use rubber hoses and metal clamps to connect their panels together. The people of Heliocol have created the world’s only patented panel connector, the Plastic Panel Clamp. Rubber hoses require maintenance every six months and are prone to leaks and cracks. Metal clamps rust and stain the roof. Heliocol’s Plastic Panel Clamps never need maintenance, never rust and are guaranteed to never leak!
Every solar industry professional knows tubing connection is of crucial importance to prevent leakage over time. Heliocol’s patented over-molded header insures the strongest possible connection between tubing because the header is actually formed around the tubes. This process actually joins the tubes and header together as one solid piece.
