SolarBeam uses flat plate solar technology in all its systems. Flat plate technology was developed specifically to harness the sun power of African conditions, and is far superior to evacuated tubes (developed for European conditions) when applied locally. Understanding the difference between various technologies and how they should be applied is crucial to implementing a system that will really save you money.
SolarBeam’s solar water heating systems have been professionally designed by our onsite engineers, these systems are made out of compatible materials that have been tried, tested and perfected, for the harsh African conditions. From the harsh sand storms and thunderstorms of North Africa, through to the extreme humidity of Southern Africa, SolarBeam systems are structured to survive the toughest African conditions.
