Millions of dollars in research and over a decade of scientific development has culminated in the new generation Black Chrome XII (BCXII).

A solar hot water system so advanced, so reliable, it is backed by an exclusive 12 year guarantee.  A guarantee which covers everything, all parts, right down to the last nut and bolt - including labour - for 12 years!

No other hot water system, gas, electric or solar, has ever had the confidence of its manufacturer to support a 12 year guarantee. It's an industry first, from Solahart. So, what does this mean to you?

Unprecedented reliability and lasting hot water without the worry and inconvenience of breakdowns associated with traditional systems.

Zero Maintenance.

All hot water systems need maintenance. Conventional systems require regular servicing, while standard solar hot water systems usually require a five year service.

Not so with Solahart's Black Chrome XII series. It's designed to take on the toughest conditions and it's maintenance free! In the unlikely event that any service is required, this will be carried out free of charge during its 12 year guarantee period.

Increased Performance.

When Solahart first launched its Black Chrome technology over a decade ago, it was years ahead of its time. However, we've taken something that was technologically far superior and made it even better.

Super Solar Collector Panels.

No other solar hot water system attracts and uses the sun's energy as effectively as the New Generation Black Chrome XII. The tough, unique Black Chrome plating absorbs a greater amount of solar energy and heats water better than other conventional surfaces.
 

Revolutionary Multi-Flow.

All Black Chrome XII systems feature Solahart's exclusive multi-flow solar collector panel design. In short, this means your water is heated faster and more efficiently. In fact, on a per square metre basis, independent tests confirm Solahart's Black Chrome collector outperforms any flat plate collector on the market.

So, how does it work?

In standard solar hot water systems water is circulated through the solar collector panels and back into the storage cylinder. But in the closed circuit system a specially developed 'Hartgard™' fluid absorbs the sun's energy and transfers the heat to the water in the storage cylinder as it circulates within a special jacket surrounding the cylinder. With this system, there is nothing to clog or corrode the inside of the collector panels. Plus the Hartgard fluid will not freeze, protecting your Solahart from damage, even under frost or prolonged sub-zero conditions.

It's Full Steam Ahead With Full Mains Pressure!

Solahart's three Black Chrome XII models, the 181BCXII, 302BCXII and 443BCXII now operate with full mains pressure. So, just turn on the tap for powerful, piping hot water.
 

You'll Recoup Your Investment.

True! The savings you'll make on your power bills, from the sun's free energy, means that you can recover the cost of your initial investment. So, your Solahart not only pays for itself, but it provides you with genuine savings year after year. Guaranteed. You won't get that with an ordinary gas or electric system.

The Black Chrome XII Is Automatic.

The Black Chrome XII comes with an electric booster as standard. Although you do have the option of choosing a 'Natural Wonder' gas boosted system. (For gas booster, see separate product brochure and warranty.)
 

You can choose a Black Chrome XII system which includes a 180, 300 or 440 litre capacity. Although the sizes vary, the unique Black Chrome XII benefits are for everyone to enjoy.

How Do You Use Your Booster?

Many people ask about how they should use their booster switch. Our advice is to leave it switched on during winter or continuous cloudy periods. Its fully automatic thermostat turns the booster on and off as needed to maintain pre-set temperature. It doesn't mean you're paying for supplementary electric or gas energy, just because your switch is on.
 

Environmentally Friendly.

Your new Black Chrome XII will not only save you money, but you'll be playing your part in reducing greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere (up to 5 tonnes per annum). Wouldn't it be great if everyone had a Solahart? The world would be a cleaner place.
 

Installed Same Day.

Your new generation Black Chrome XII can be installed within 24 hours. In most cases, you won't have to go a day without a shower. Best of all, from the moment it's installed you're saving money with free energy from the sun.

FEATURES

1. Stylish Slim Line Design
The look made famous by Solahart. Seen on homes in over 70 countries around the world.

2. Hot water 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
On those days when there's insufficient solar energy, your automatic booster (left switched on) cuts in to maintain hot water temperature for loads of hot water around the clock.

3. World's Most Advanced Technology.
Your Black Chrome XII features a revolutionary sealed jacket around the storage cylinder. This enables the 'closed circuit' fluid to flow from the solar collector panels around the outside of the storage cylinder and quickly transfers its heat to the water stored in the cylinder. Simply put, it means plentiful hot water, supplied free from the sun, is ready and waiting for constant use.

4. High Density Insulation.
The cylinder is insulated in its durable aluminium case by pressure injected, high density, environmentally safe polyurethane foam which is CFC FREE! The result, your water stays hotter longer.

5. Superior Protection.
The large capacity water storage cylinder is protected from the harshest water with not one, but two coats of Primaglaze® ceramic lining. Plus there's now a long life heavy duty sacrificial anode.

6. Corrosion Protection.
Solahart's exclusive closed circuit system also eliminates risk of the collector plate corroding or clogging from the inside.

7. Maintenance Free.
The system is designed to provide long, maintenance free service in harsh climate and water conditions.

8. Looks Better, Lasts Longer.
Proven premium quality aluminium, used for Solahart's collector case, looks better and, more importantly, lasts longer.

9. Proven High Performance.
Maximum absorption of solar energy is achieved by the unique, super responsive solar collectors which are designed to absorb more solar radiation and transfer it more efficiently.

10. Solar Glass.
Superior quality solar glass is tougher, providing superior performance, protection and appearance.

11. Freeze Protection.
Solahart's exclusive closed circuit technology is all the protection you need to prevent freezing in frost-prone or cold climate regions.

12. Exclusive Multi-Flow Solar Collector.
Greatly increases heat transmission to transfer fluid.
