„For our environment – for our children” – we are governed by this motto when designing, making upgradings to and manufacturing our fireplace-stoves.

An important feature of Fireplace products that they not only meet general European environmental requirements – tests according to DIN EN, CE marking – but also can mostly be put to use in places where stringent local regulations are in force (e.g. within Germany in Munich, Stuttgart and Regensburg, there are emission limit values stricter than required by the relevant regulation in general).

We are proud of the fireboxes of our fireplace-stoves which meet the requirements of DIN-Plus certification program as a result of our development team’s devoted work.

 
 
Industrial design

The warmth and the force of fire have had a magical effect over man since ancient times. We deem it our mission to provide this original experience, in tamed form, within the walls of people’s homes, through our fireplace-stoves.

The Fire Plus system
News image

Fireplace’s Fire Plus system ensures an optimum combustion of the flue gases generated, at low harmful emissions. Combined with effective heat exchange system, fireplace-stoves give high efficiency.

After the first batch of wood used to make a fire is burnt to glowing embers, the next step is to place on it the amount of wood complying with the output of the fireplace-stove, and wait until it lights. This is the first stage of the combustion process, i.e. the period of „high flames” when gases arising from the wood are burnt.

In the second stage of the combustion process, the size of flames is reduced. That is the time when residual (elementary) carbon is burnt. This time the embers are of light colour in the firebox and the flames are very small.

Low harmful emissions and high efficiency combustion can only be achieved if the amount of air required for combustion is available in the right place in all stages of combustion. Long retention time in the firebox of gases mixed with air required for combustion and the hot firebox itself have a favourable influence on combustion.

This effective method of firing technique can be achieved by Fireplace’s Fire Plus system. Primary air entering from the base of the firebox through the grate is supplemented by secondary air („glass washing” air) and terciary air entering through slots at various heights of the firebox.

Wood, wood briquette and brown coal briquette burn with high flames. In the flame range and afterwards in the range above the embers, secondary and terciary air is introduced by the system to the firebox in such a way that as a result of the mixture of gas and air required for combustion as well as long retention time of gases in the firebox, perfect combustion should occur. Good quality lining of the firebox ensures high temperatures resulting in an increase of the efficiency of combustion.

After that, heating gases pass through one or more baffle systems in the upper part of the stove to enter the heat-exchanger which usually consists of a pipe system. Here heating gases lose heat again.

 

Finally, flue gas exits from the fireplace-stove through the flue gas pipe-end and is passed, through a connection piece, to the chimney. Depending on the type of the stove, the length of the connection piece and the method of connection, flue gas enters the chimney with temperatures about 230-300 degrees. The remaining amount of energy ensures the necessary delivery pressure in the chimney which is the „engine of the stove”.

 
About fireplace-stoves

Definition

A fireplace-stove – as it is shown by its name – is a device combining the properties of a fireplace and a stove. Steel sheet stoves originally come from Scandinavia. They offer economical and environmentally sound alternative of heating.

Most fireplace-stoves consist of three parts arranged one above the other. The middle one is the firebox the inside of which is usually lined with fireclay or vermiculite bricks. Above it, there is usually a warming shelf, and under it, wood or briquette storage compartment is found.

.

What is a fireplace-stove suitable for?

A fireplace-stove only serves for heating one room.

The heating output of Fireplace’s fireplace-stoves range from 5 to 9 kW.

Fireplace-stoves not only give heat, but also contribute to the cosiness of your home thanks to the sight of fire.

Fireplace-stoves transmit a considerable part of heat by thermal radiation. One of the various types draws in air from the room, warms it up behind the firebox and transmits heat through the warming shelf. For such types heat transmission mainly takes place by convection. These types of stoves are provided with convection air slots and their efficiency is specially high.

Efficiency shows what percentage of used energy is passed on to the room as heat. The efficiency of fireplace-stoves is higher (> 70%) than that of fireplaces. Open fires (fireplaces) allow the exit of more heat through the chimney.  

Firebox design

Since the fireboxes of fireplace-stoves are mostly lined with fireclay bricks or vermiculite slabs, they also have some heat storage capacity. Otherwise the heat storage capacity would be low due to the light steel sheet structure, because a stove transmits heat soon after a fire is made, and also cools down soon after the fire is extinguished.

This problem is solved by Fireplace by applying special heat storage facings for most of its fireplace-stoves: stove ceramics of outstanding quality or soapstone. This facing is capable of storing and transmitting heat for 12 hours.

Good fireplace-stoves are capable of maintaining embers for about ten hours at closed doors. If they operate at open doors the fire should frequently be refuelled.

Accessories

Our stoves are provided with fireproof glass doors so that you could enjoy the sight of flaming fire in addition to high efficiency.

All Fireplace’s fireplace-stoves are equipped with grates allowing the combustion of wood, brown coal briquette and wood briquette as well.

All Fireplace’s fireplace-stoves come complete with ash pan which is a convenient solution especially when briquettes are burnt as they produce large amounts of ash and it is advised to empty the pan on a daily basis.

Attention should be paid to what fuels the manufacturer permit to be burnt in the individual types of fireplace-stoves. There are exclusively wood fired fireplace-stoves which are not suitable for burning other fuels.

Safety

When finding a place for fireplace-stoves, the required safety distances from combustible materials, furniture and textiles should be adhered to, which may differ from type to type of stove. Please always observe the safety distance indicated on the type plate!

Stoves are not allowed to stand on wooden floors, wall-to-wall carpets or vinyl floors. Therefore the best solution is to put them on ceramic floor slabs or glass/metal footboards.  A space of 50 cm in front of the firebox and 20 cm at each side of it should be left free. 

Fireplace-stoves are governed by several DIN standards (DIN18 896:2005-06, DIN EN 13240). These standards also cover safety requirements.

Structure

DIN distinguishes two types of fireplace-stove structures. Type 2 construction models may be operated at both closed and open doors, and each stove needs a chimney of its own.

Type 1 construction models may only be used at closed doors. Doors may only be opened for operation purposes. Of these types of fireplace-stoves, as many as three can be connected to the same chimney. All Fireplace’s fireplace-stoves belong to type 1 construction models!

Setup in old buildings

Fireplace-stoves are excellently suitable for setup in old buildings as they are delivered complete and connection should only be made.

Due to their relatively low weight, no statics related problems should occur.

However, make sure to ask the local chimney-sweeper if the chimney is suitable for the operation of a fireplace-stove.

Since the chimney is the engine of a fireplace-stove, chimneys unused over many years should be inspected prior to putting them to operation, and repaired as required.

Building regulations

Prior to the setup of a fireplace-stove, make sure to ask the local chimney-sweeper in each case. In certain regions of Germany, the operation of stoves is subject to permit.
