From the 1000-4 Solar Collector datasheet:

Genersys 1000-4 Solar Collector
Genersys 1000-4 is a world-leading flat-plate, vertically-mounted type collector without collection pipes, intended for applications in smaller systems equipped with circulating pumps. It consists of a one-piece forged metal casing to which safety solar glass is fixed by means of a frame made from non corrosive aluminium profile.

Stamped Al-Mg sheet absorber fins with high-selective conversion layer span the copper pipe meander. The 12 copper connection pipes are connected to the hydraulic circuit by soldering or by means of clamp fitting. The flanged connection pipes are connected to the hydraulic circuit by patented connection clamps. Three collectors can be connected in a series.
