We are a family business with 40 years of experience in building solar absorbers for heating pool systems. With pioneering spirit and inventiveness we opened up a market that did not exist back then. In 1979 we gained recognition among experts when we were awarded the Decoration of the Republic of Austria and the Grand Medal in Gold from the Austrian Association of Patentees and Inventors for our solar collector for heating pool systems. By then, our customers were already convinced!
With the successful link from manufacturer to client we turned into the most client oriented and most assembly oriented absorber on the market.
It starts with the fact that no absorber we produce is heavier than 25 kg. We achieved this with our modular building style with the width grid of 25 cm.
Thus we are not only the first supplier to offer an entirely continuous absorber surface but we also guarantee that the individual panels are easy to handle during transport and assembling.
With the length grid of 10 cm and the possible diagonal cuts, the MITRA solar absorber is the system that makes best use of the given mounting surface.
Distributions of almost 100 % are not a rare fact. With the elegant end sections we can lay both collecting pipes on one side. Thus we reduce the piping on the roof and have a straight closure with the end pieces. With the mat holder system invented by ISS vertical installations or installations on any slanted roof are also possible. But these are not the only advantages!
With this system you do not need to extensively glue the solar absorber to the roof.
Due to the durability of the MITRA system, often repairs to the roof or something else are necessary during this period.
This could soon cause problems when dismounting the MITRA system because the glue is still very adhesive after many years.
With the mat holder system, only the mat holder bars have to be fixed. The absorber is fastened to them with removable clips. This process can be repeated as often as you want and we have often seen that private users of MITRA solar collectors moved house and took their solar collectors with them.
We proudly take notice of the fact that our competitors have been trying to copy our system and take it as a compliment of our achievements.
But the true recognition for our work is of course our satisfied clients.
They soon discovered the difference between the original MITRA system, into which we put a lot of development and engineering skills, and a cheap copy.
We are also proud of the fact that we have saved 300,000 t of oil (about 3 supertankers) with our work over the years so far.
Because we are all just guests on this planet.
