The architectural integration was carefully considered in the installation of the Transpired Solar Collectors at SBEC.

  • Their position and dimension are coherent with the architectural composition of the whole building.
  • The Transpired Solar Collectors have been designed as a multifunctional constructional element and fulfil several functions including sun shading, facade cladding and solar collector absorption.
  • The Transpired Solar Collector sections (areas inside the red solid lines) are cleverly integrated into the façade by incorporating the use of non-active elements (dummies).
  • The size and shape of the cassette panels are compatible with the composition grid of the building (red broken lines) and with the various dimensions of the other façade elements.
