A heat exchange assembly comprises a solar heat collector panel adapted to be mounted on a portable support. The panel includes a rigid frame portion, an upper planar surface portion, a bottom planar surface portion and a planar, continuous tubular coil formed by a single, continuous tubular coil formed by a single, continuous tube member disposed between the upper and bottom surface portions. The upper planar surface portion includes a sheet of solar ray penetrating material and the bottom surface portion includes a sheet of rigid backing material. The rigid frame portion extends around the entire periphery of the panel to define the outer profile thereof. The rigid frame portion includes a channel which receives the outer edges of the upper sheet of solar ray penetrating material and the bottom, rigid backing sheet with the tubular coil disposed therebetween to fix the sheet of solar ray penetrating material, the tubular coil and the bottom surface portion into a unitary structural configuration. Specific features of the invention are directed to the particular structure of the channel member, the specific structure of the portable support and the particular interrelationship between the various elements of the overall assembly.
