Quality Control

Our solar collectors and frames are manufactured in our own manufacturing facility. The facility is managed by fellow Australian and Apricus global CEO – Mick Humphreys, who oversees all operations.

The facility is regularly audited by European, Australian and local authorities to ensure adherence with product standards, labour laws, safety regulations and environmental requirements. We have obtained Australian Standards (AS2712:2002), SRCC (USA) and Solarkeymark (EU) certifications. Our factory is also certified to ISO9001:2008 management and production standards. We regularly provide systems for solar hot water in Brisbane, Sydney, Gold Coast and other regional centres in NSW and QLD.


15 Year Warranty

Because we own and manage the manufacturing process, we are able to proudly offer an industry leading 15 year warranty on Apricus evacuated tube solar hot water collectors installed in both Domestic and Commercial installations. That’s a 15 year warranty on the mounting frame, 15 year warranty on the evacuated tubes and heat pipes and 15 year warranty on the manifold – now that is peace of mind!


One Design, Unlimited Possibilities

The evacuated tube solar collector we install on a home or cottage is the same collector we use in a commercial installation using 100+ collectors (besides some small design changes to make collecting multiple collectors easier). Apricus solar collectors can be used for much more than just heating water for baths, showers and kitchens. Apricus evacuated tubes are being used across the globe for a large number of applications including:

  • Home solar hot water systems
  • Residential or commercial pool heating
  • Hydronic heating including radiators, under-floor and more
  • Pre-heating commercial high temperature boilers
  • Bottle warming in dairies
  • And even solar air-conditioning!
