AES Supremacy

The AES Supremacy flat plate solar thermal collector combines over 3 decades of solar design and manufacturing experience with state of the art technology and a modern, professional approach to technical and visual design. Optimising energy yield and consideration of aesthetics are equally important to many home owners and specifiers and the AES Supremacy satisfies both impeccably. Both new and proven mounting solutions mean installation is quick and easy for the installer and causes minimal disruption to the home owner. The AES Supremacy is Solar Keymark certified and tested to the ISO EN 9806 global standard for solar thermal collectors, meaning you can be assured it satisfies the highest standards of construction quality – backed up by a 10 year warranty. Solar Keymark certification also means that the collector qualifies for Government incentives including the UK domestic and non-domestic RHI schemes.


A high efficiency collector with anti-reflective technology boasting a 95.5% solar transmission level.


Tested to international engineering standard EN ISO 9806 for durability and performance.


Only 70mm thick! Roof integrated options for tile and slate, seamless colour.



Portrait or landscape, range of sizes and fixing for almost any roof type, can be ground or wall mounted with a ballast option for flat roofs.

AES Endurance

Utilising a high efficiency, selectively coated aluminium absorber plate that is metallurgically bonded to a rhombic copper waterway, the solar collector fins provide superior heat absorption and conductivity, as well as long-term durability.

This absorber is combined with a light-weight, twin-walled glazing that possesses excellent optical properties while creating an outer thermal insulation layer, ensuring that solar energy is retained within the panel for water heating.
