SOLAB Survey – Roof integration examples – Cases N° 9 and 10
The most appreciated integrations were those of the roof integrated unglazed solar collectors systems presented in Ex. 9 and 10, both judged very good. In these examples the collector occupies the whole roof area and has the double function of solar absorber and upper layer of the covering system. The size and shape of the collector as well as its black colour are considered to be a good choice.
The visible piping of the Example 9 seems to disturb engineers more(!) than architects, who appreciate the controlled design of the technical elements, conceived as integral part of the building design.
