VELUX solar collectors have been designed to hug the roofline, creating a streamlined, aesthetically pleasing appearance. The VELUX roof integrated collectors have the same low profile look and performance as the VELUX skylights and roof windows used for years throughout the U.S., and they are available in 3 sizes (U12, S06, and M08 in the chart below) so that they can be combined with many of our skylight and roof window products to provide integrated solutions for solar water heating, daylighting, and ventilation.
VELUX rack mounted collectors mount on top of the roof using special rack mounting hardware and are available in 1 size only (U12 in the chart below). A flat roof rack is available for the installation of our collectors on flat roofs, roofs with a pitch less than 15°, or where a variable pitch adjustment is needed to better align your collectors for maximum efficiency. A parallel to the roof rack option provides top mount fastening capability into metal roof panels and other roofing materials that may not be feasible for our roof integrated collectors.
