Cabin Roof mounted unit

We also supply a Cabin Roof Mounted Standard unit, which can perform depending on the elevation and question of reasonable Solar Radiation Levels during the various months of the year. Average Radiation Levels during the winter months in the Southern areas of the UK are in the region of 700W/m². Generally our wall mounted solar air heaters are 6% more effective than the roof mounted versions.

We identified the following results during tests on April 2nd 2011 between 12.00 hours and 13.00 hours. Test units facing South. Generally the day was bright but overcast with a little diluted sunshine. Other test results are on our webpages.
