 *Only Wood and Smokeless Fuel are permitted for Cleanburn use.

Multifuel

If a stove is detailed as multifuel, simply put this means you can burn a number of different fuels including wood, coal, coke, peat, anthracite and smokeless fuels.

Cleanburn

Some areas of the UK are designated as smoke controlled. These areas prohibit the burning of smoke producing fuels such as wood. However you can still use a stove if they burn smokeless fuel or gas. If you still wish to burn wood in these areas then you would need to purchase a DEFRA approved Cleanburn stove.  Our Cleanburn stoves are specially designed to burn wood whilst producing lower smoke emissions.

For further information on smoke controlled areas visit the DEFRA website www.smokecontrol.defra.gov.uk

 

General Information

All our stoves are manufactured from cast iron and it is vital that appliances undergo a period of ‘burning in’. This involves small fires initially and then gradually increasing in size with each firing.

All our stoves are CE approved to EN13240 and are suitable for use with a variety of fuels such as wood, coal, coke, peat, anthracite and smokeless fuels.

For safety our stoves are supplied with a heat resistant mitten, as stoves are very hot when being used.

Each stove has a riddling grate mechanism to ease de-ashing. Ensure that all ash is removed from your solid fuel stove (Once Cooled) on a regular basis. It is important that a build up of ash is not allowed to occur as this will affect the life of the consumable parts within the burning chamber.

All our stoves can be top or rear flue fitted.

Our stoves utilize an ‘air wash’ system which helps to keep the large viewing glass clean during operation as well as improve efficiency.

Please ensure that your chosen installer has the necessary qualifications and experience to fit all of the components needed to install your stove/fireplace.

All our stoves are supplied with detailed, comprehensive installation and user instructions.

It is critical that ALL Solid fuel installations conform to the relevant building regulations and should be carried out by a qualified HETAS engineer. Failure to comply with these requirements may reduce the efficiency and serviceability of your appliance and will invalidate any guarantee. It is essential that prior to any installation, a relevant qualified engineer verifies the proposed site location and conditions are suitable for the stove selected.

All installations must be carried out in accordance with the requirements set out in the building regulation documents, in particular Approved Document J. Independent bodies have been approved to carry out installations in accordance with these regulations. For Solid Fuel installations the recognised independent body is HETAS. A CO detector must be installed with all solid fuel appliances.

If your new fireplace is fitted by a HETAS certified installer you will be issued with a certificate stating that your appliance has been fitted in accordance with building regulations. If you do not have one of these certificates then you must arrange for your local Building Control Officer to inspect your installation and approve it.

Understanding your Stove

Cast iron – Do not use water-based cleaner or polish to clean cast iron products.

There are some very high temperature burning fuels which can cause damage to any fireplace. Please refer to the Solid Fuel Association.

No responsibility can be accepted if high temperature fuels have been used or if there is excessive draft.

Clean ash away regularly as a build up beneath the fire will cause the grate to burn out quickly. The grate is a consumable part of your fire and will need replacing from time to time, depending on the frequency and burning temperature of your fires.

There are rare occasions when designs, or products are altered or discontinued without prior notice (a reserved right).
