Putting Patios to Work
One of our earliest projects was featured in the March 2016 Hardscapes issue of Landscape Contractor. The article features paver sub-surface products which can help combat climate conditions and make paver hardscapes safe and comfortable. ThermaPANEL is featured for its paver cooling and pool heating capabilities demonstrated by the Gateway Canyons Resort project in Gateway, Colorado.
Solar water heating and collection serves as a unique function of the ThermaPANEL system design allowing many applications to pay for themselves over time. When a pool is involved, ThermaPANEL has the ability to not only snowmelt but also cool the pavers and heat the pool. Pavers exposed to the sun can become extremely hot making outdoor spaces unsafe, unbearable and unusable. By extracting the heat from the surface paver, ThermaPANEL lowers the temperature of the paver capturing solar generated heat to be used for a pool, spa, or supplemental hot water source. By reducing or eliminating the cost of heating a pool or spa, ThermaPANEL will pay for itself and create a comfortable and safe outdoor environment year round.
