Polysolar Case Study: Outdoor swimming pool Solarium


To restore the Solarium roof by replacing the existing sheet metal roof with transparent PV panels, providing the site with a renewable source of electricity. 


The solarium dating back to July 1936 originally consisted of Vita glass panels but was later replaced with sheet metal. Installing Polysolar’s innovative transparent glass solar panels has allowed the solarium to return to its original design previously enjoyed by the pool goers.

The panels, being 20% transparent, still allow natural light to penetrate the solarium without harmful UV rays, and have the additional benefit of generating renewable electricity even at low light levels. This installation used Polysolar's 20% transparent panels and achieves a peak system size of 8 kWp. 

Designed by architects Studio Gedye and commissioned by Hathersage Parish Council this installation is a demonstration of the village’s commitment to maintaining the pools heritage whilst also embracing new green technologies.
