So what is it that makes our open convector fires quite so good ?
The simple answer lies in that ‘convector’ word – our open fires are at least two, and usually three or four times as efficient as a standard open fire. This means that with one of our open convectors installed, you would be extracting much more of the available heat from your precious fuel and therefore using less.
So that they can deliver this additional convected warmth, all of our fireboxes are designed as a ‘box within a box’ which is where this extra warmth is generated. They produce radiant heat in just the same way as an ordinary fire but also give that added bonus of convected heat. It is this natural convection effect which greatly increases the output you can get from your fuel as well as gently circulating the warmth more evenly through your room.
We make a wide range of built-in open fires as well as a selection of freestanding open convectors in both traditional and contemporary designs – for our freestanders, think ‘woodburning stove without the doors’. We all love the sight and sound of a real open fire and with our open fires there are no glass doors to worry about keeping clean, just the simple enjoyment of a lovely unimpeded view of those flickering flames.
