Innovation is born of necessity, and continued innovation is central to the success of Supreme Heating. By understanding our customers, their needs, and the way they use swimming pools and spas, we have gained insights that encourage us to continuously rethink and improve pool heating systems.
We analyse trends and developments in the pool and spa industry so that our products can evolve to suit the changing environment of housing design and outdoor living spaces. As an industry leader, our obsession with quality and performance drives Supreme Heating further in product development every day.
Our culture is one of open innovation, allowing our team to work collaboratively to develop ideas that resonate with our customers whilst respecting the planet. Our emphasis on innovation and creativity isn’t limited to our design teams; we foster resourceful and imaginative thinking across the company.
Supreme Heating has been leading the industry in product innovations since the early 1990s. Solar pool heating products Heatseeker Plus and Heatseeker UniPanel® have not only pioneered new, sustainable energy efficient technologies, but it is our extraordinary product design that really differentiates us as a company of creativity.
Our first significant leap of innovation was in traditional strip solar pool heating. Designed and developed in 1992 by company founder and Director, Colin Mauger, Heatseeker Plus introduced an elliptical shaped profile collector. Utilising the available energy from the sun, Heatseeker Plus allows increased exposure to solar radiation providing greater efficiencies. To this day, Heatseeker Plus is still the world’s only elliptical shaped profile.
Taking the concept of rigid solar pool heating to the next level, our team developed the Heatseeker UniPanel® universal solar pool heating system. Colin Mauger was able to draw on a wealth of knowledge from more than thirty years in the industry, combined with the innovative attitude of his eldest son, James. Market drivers such as Mother Nature, sustainability, performance efficiency, consumer taste and expectations, housing design and associated obstacles such as solar photovoltaic electricity panels and smaller roof space added to the need to develop Heatseeker UniPanel®. A culmination of more than two years of collaborative research and development through their combined understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of pool heating systems saw Heatseeker UniPanel® come to fruition.
