Solar Commercial Hot Water

SolarLordTM works together with the building industry to provide technical expertise for system designs for single dwellings, units and apartments, or for large scaled central installations such as that in motels, hotels, restaurants, hospitals, laundries, swimming pools, and industrial plants.

SolarLordsTM reputation is being built upon our ability to supply you with quality solar energy products, technical support, superior service and competitive pricing every time.

From a Commercial aspect, SolarLordsTM solar centralised hot water systems have been installed to high density apartments, hospitals and office buildings for many years. In a recent project, Eden Apartments, with the limited roof space, only 46 Solar Lord U tube collectors were used to cover half of the space than a flat panel system (requiring over 80 collectors) to achieve the equivalent energy output for 283 apartments. The roof built with a roof garden demonstrates sustainability and a modern life harmonious development which built a balanced model for modern style and sustainable living.  

SolarLordTM work closely with consultants & engineering firms during the planning stage and builders/developers/plumbers during the construction stage, in every project working towards a neatly integrated, highly energy efficient, aesthetically pleasing, practical, flexible, robust, long system life, easy to install, quality SHW system for the Building Industry.

SolarLordsTM professional service provided;

  • Assistance in planning and energy estimating
  • Advice in designing and customising
  • Consult & scheme project plan
  • Training and technical assistance on site
  • Monitoring,  final checking & commissioning
  • Offering  a 24 hours emergency service    

Solar pre-heating of a commercial hot water supply is an effective way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, obtain significant energy savings and reduce running costs. Commercial and industrial operations provide the perfect opportunity for solar hot water systems and solar pre-heating, due to their high energy use and large expanses of roof space - ideal for roof top collector arrays.
Our unique U-Tube evacuated tube solar collectors use direct heating technology. Through independent testing, they have proven to be the most efficient collector in the Australian marketplace.
When compared to traditional flat collectors, the following can be assured:

  • Less roof space at same solar contribution or same roof space produce higher solar gains
  • 30-40% more efficient than antiquated flat plate collectors / 11% more efficient than ‘passive heating’ aka ‘heat pipe’ evacuated tubes 
  • Attract high Government Rebates & Incentives 

Key Features:

  • Low pitching installation without seen from street (keep architecture’s exterior design)
  • Frost Protection – Level 2 Frost Protection Accreditation (-25 degrees C)
  • Hail Protection
  • Low Maintenance- Hassle Free
  • Individual Tubes can be interchanged without any down time or significant loss of performance
  • Suitable for low pitched roofs (5 degree minimum pitch)
  • High wind force rating, withstand Beaufort Wind Force 11

Solar Lord Commercial Solar uses our award winning U Tube collector - the highest efficiency collector available on the market without exception. The U Tube reduces roof space by up to 40% or provides 40% more solar contribution by using the same roof space of the others. By using fewer collectors, you will not only reduce the labour on the installation but also save space for other key amenities. All of the systems can provide hot water with solar contribution level with best available government incentives. The significantly offset from STCs (Renewable Energy Certificates) make commercial solar achievable at lower cost and practical for any scale project.

For residential blocks of about fifteen or more stacked residential apartments, centralised gas hot water can be cheaper and space save than individual water heaters.
A typical gas centralised hot water system supplying residential dwellings includes:
one or more central hot water heaters, with corresponding gas meters
insulated piping to each apartment, with individual hot water meters.The total amount of gas consumed to provide hot water is split amongst the dwellings supplied.  Each dwelling’s gas consumption quota is calculated based on the amount of water flowing from the boiler to the dwelling measured by the hot water meter, and is reflected on an individual gas bill.
SolarLord commercial gas hot water systems are available in a host of options including hot water storage tanks, warm water valves, heat exchange tanks, solar pre-heating, circulating pump controllers and BMS take off points. 
Complete systems can be pre-assembled to wall mounting, free standing or skid mounted in our factory. By taking a modular approach, each system has been tested and can be easily transported and fitted into position, which means it requires connecting only on site.
