Solar hot water installation for business

All weather performance

Solar tubes provide a greater surface area than flat solar panels, they take up less roof space and perform better in shady or cloudy conditions. The unique design of an Apricus system can be used in temperatures as low as -15°C. There are special designs available for locations with even lower temperatures.

coastal design

The anodised aluminium frame treatment combined with marine grade 316SS attachment plates, tube clips, nuts, bolts and washers make the collector extremely durable in coastal installations.

Our solar hot water systems are tested to the most respected and rigorous certification standards, these are the Solar Rating & Certification Corporation (USA) and Solar Keymark (Europe). This high level of certification and standards testing’s exceeds what most solar suppliers in New Zealand are selling, so check the certification before you buy.

What people say?

A solar tube hot water heater was installed 18 months ago and is performing perfectly. There was some initial teething problems with the system due to the location of the collector. These were eliminated over the next 5 months and the whole system is working correctly. I highly recommend the system and installers for anybody who requires a solar water heater

Brilliant service...and outstanding after sales service. Thanks Marcus and the team for checking and repairing my system without me even asking, and all under warranty.
