Solar Energy for Clothes Drying
The Solar Air Module (SAM) unit is the ideal product if you would like to establish a drying cupboard or drying room in your home. A solar powered drying room is free to operate and will therefore reduce your energy costs substantially – especially if you are in the habit of using a clothes dryer regularly. SAM is an ingenious maintenance free device that uses the sun to warm the air in the solar collector and allows you to duct this warm air into the specified location such as a drying room. For the most effective result – a second solar powered fan will normally be installed to help remove the moisture from the drying clothes.
The concept of the Solar Drying Room was first demonstrated on the popular ABC TV Show: The Carbon Cops back in 2007.
The Carbon Cops proved that clothes can be dried fast and effectively with a solar air collector supplying fresh warm and dry air into the drying area – and that this not only reduced energy consumption, but also was extremely convenient for the family.

Our Solar Air Collectors can of course also be used for drying cupboards – and are very effective to prevent mould on clothes, shoes and other leather goods in walk in ropes.
