Solar Skies solar thermal collectors are designed for performance and durability in both commercial and residential applications. At every juncture in the manufacturing process, the highest grade components are used to ensure that your collector not only performs, but endures both time and the extreme conditions to which collectors are exposed in Minnesota’s winter and summer climate.
All Copper Absorber – Our fin, tube and header are 100% copper, eliminating the concerns of dissimilar metals with different expansion and contraction rates or galvanic corrosion issues which can shorten collector life and performance. Our parallel flow allows our collectors to be utilized in both drain back and pressurized installation.
Fin Tube Welding – Our fin tubes are joined using Thermafin’s high frequency forge weld process that utilizes no foreign materials in the weld process and allows for a true, seamless copper to copper connection which maintains the cross sectional area of the weld joint for maximum heat transfer performance. This fin tube weld joint has a 30 year guarantee.
Selective Surfacing – Our absorber fins are coated with “Crystal Clear” selective surface coating. This high performance coating utilizes a single-phase nanocrystalline technology encapsulated with a permanent protective glass layer serving multiple functions, including anti-reflection, anti-corrosion, and durability.
Absorber Pressure Testing – Every Solar Skies’ absorber is factory pressure tested to 350 PSI, the highest in the industry.
Insulation – Solar Skies uses only Dow Themax, a flame rated polyisosyuranate insulation manufactured using a free rise process that allows potential elements that cause outgassing to escape during the production process, ensuring haze free glass and unobstructed solar performance for years to come.

The EZ-Array Collectors can be 2–8 collectors and requires EZ strut (E1022-EZ).
The EZ-Array Package Includes:
- Capped Corners – The header is capped at the factory during the manufacturing process. The pipe does not exit the collector, making a very clean looking corner. The factory capped corners eliminate the need for onsite installation of pipe cap and insulation.
- Internal Sensor Well – The sensor well is permanently bonded to the absorber assembly providing more “internal” temperature measurements. This allows the system controller to respond quicker to changing conditions, maximizing BTU’s per day and reducing installation time. Perfect for drain back systems.
- Union Connections – The heavy duty ground joint brass and copper unions are installed and pressure tested to 350 psi. Cuts installation time in half by using the union connection option. Eliminates O-ring and seal failure.
- Tilt Mount Hardware and EZ Strut – The quick and simple bolt-together tilt mount hardware allows tilt at different angles or elevations. The EZ strut is factory cut and drilled to your tilt specs.
