Nordair Niche and CA Group have joined forces in a strategic alliance to provide clients with a truly renewable and financially-viable solution in their drive to increase building efficiency, reduce costs and carbon emissions.
The perforated Transpired Solar Collector system unites Nordair Niche’s extensive range of energy-efficient space heating equipment with CA Group’s SolarWall® metal solar cladding system to create an innovative, fully integrated solution which delivers in both the environment and on the balance sheet.
The Reznor Renewables SolarWall ® and the heating systems work together to harness the solar energy and fulfil the building’s heating needs.
Thousands of tiny perforations uniformly spaced across the absorber are crucial to the system’s performance and efficiency. As sunlight strikes the surface of the SolarWall® and is absorbed, solar heat conducts to the thermal boundary layer of air which lines the outer surface of the panel. This boundary layer of air is then drawn into a nearby perforation before the heat can escape by convection, virtually eliminating heat loss from the surface of the plate. This simple, yet critical, innovation makes the SolarWall® perforated Transpired Solar Collector by far the most efficient in its field.
