Sunshine incident on the outer skin of a Sol-Air panel causes the collector temperature to increase. This heat is transferred to the air inside the collector void.
Low energy fans incorporated within the HVAC or building ventilation system create a negative pressure, which draws external air into the collector. As the air travels towards the top of the collector void it continues to absorb heat energy before exiting at the top of the elevation. Heated air is transferred from the collector into the building via the HVAC system or alternatively through a high level ventilation system.
An automatic control system with in-built temperature sensors constantly monitors the collector supply air temperature and modulates fan power to ensure the collector is operating to an optimum efficiency and effectively supplementing the building heating and ventilation needs.
Sol-Air Integrated is a through fixed insulated wall panel system.
Kingspan has adopted the Building Research Establishment's (BRE) Environmental Profiles Assessment Methodology which quantifies the environmental impact of its panels. A range of data linked to environmental issues was analysed for the whole production process, from cradle (inception and raw materials) to grave (disposal).
As proof of our commitment, Kingspan Sol-Air has achieved an A+ rating, the highest possible.
BRE'S Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM) is independent, verified and audited according to an internationally recognised methodology.
