Filsol flat plate collector
The SML solar water heating system is based on the Filsol flat plate collector which is manufactured at Filsol Solar's factory in South Wales. Based on a high efficiency stainless steel absorber plate, the Filsol collector is widely regarded as one of the most effective, reliable and long lasting solar collectors available. Under the Low Carbon Buildings Programme Phase 2, these systems are subject to grants of 50% of the total purchase and installation cost.
Filsol's flat plate collectors have been installed in domestic, public sector and commercial buildings throughout the UK for over 25 years, with many of the early solar water heating installations still operating effectively today.
Filsol have been instrumental in the development of the solar energy industry in the UK for over two decades. The Filsol brand is especially well known in the public sector – particularly with local authorities and housing associations – where the brand has become synonymous with a commitment to quality and customer satisfaction. Today thousands of Filsol systems are providing clean, "green" solar heated water in both the public and private sectors across the UK.
