Built in fires - state of the art features

Radiant & Convected Heat

Radiant Heat: occurs when an object or surface becomes warm and then emits the heat back in to the room. Certain materials store heat particularly well and can radiate this stored heat back into the room over an extended period.

Radiant heat will travel through the air from its source until it hits an object, and the object (typically furniture or people) will be heated.

Convected Heat: heats the air around the fire or stove. Our convector fireplaces greatly enhance convected heating efficiency. By drawing cool air through the grate and heating it in a convection chamber before diffusing the warmed air back into the room, the result is a heating efficiency twice that of a traditional open fire.

Many fires and stoves use a combination of radiant and convected heat.

External Air Facility

All fires require an air source to provide oxygen for combustion. If the air is drawn from room in which the fire is installed, this can cause draughts. The External Air Facility means your fire will draw air from outside the room and reduce any draughts, effectively increasing your heating efficiency.

Frameless Fire option

For those who require a minimalist look, frameless fires have no exterior frame between the front of the fire and the wall.

Our high efficiency glass fronted fires do have a 27mm inner frame that secures the glass in place.

Convection System

Our convector fireplaces greatly enhance convected heating efficiency. By drawing cool air through the grate and heating it in a convection chamber before diffusing the warmed air back into the room, the result is a heating efficiency twice that of a traditional open fire.

Remote Control as Standard

Once the pilot light has been ignited manually you can vary the flame height and heat output from the comfort of your armchair.

State of the art features - wood & multi fuel fires

Airwash

airwash logo

Airwash is part of Stovax’s firebox air flow technology.

Airwash is a design feature that uses a specially placed vent or vents to draw in cool air from the outside to ‘wash’ over the inside of the glass. This helps to keep the glass cleaner for longer, allowing you to enjoy the glow and flames to the full.

It is also used as primary combustion air when burning wood.

Cleanburn

Cleanburn is part of Stovax’s Triple Air System technology.

With Cleanburn, secondary air is pre-heated as it passes through a heat exchanger chamber within the firebox. It is then drawn into the smoke stream, where it combusts unburnt hydrocarbons to provide a cleaner burn and greater thermal efficiency.

A stove with the Cleanburn will give you more heat output from your fuel.

Opti-Burn

Certain wood burning and multi fuel fires incorporate the Opti-Burn. This setting means burning logs or smokeless fuels with outstanding efficiency, resulting in more heat delivered into the room and less going up the chimney.

Combustion is achieved by directing three separate airflows into the firebox. Primary air burns the fuel under the fuel bed. The Airwash flow helps keep the window clean and the pre-heated, secondary air promotes cleanburning by the combustion of excess hydrocarbons in the smoke,

Boost Setting

Use this setting when lighting or re-fuelling your stove to quickly bring the fire up-to full strength.

State of the art features - Built in gas fires

E-Box

ebox

A top-of the range 16" wide fire that provides exceptional heating efficiency and improved fuel economy. The fire is set behind a virtually invisible glass window. Available in conventional and balanced flue options and a choice of coal or pebble effect fuel beds.

E-Box fires are available as an option with many Gazco fire frames.

E-Studio

e-studio

A very high efficiency 16" wide fire that is set behind a virtually invisible glass window. E-Studio fires successfully combine the technology of E-Box fires with the distinctive White Stone ribbon flame effect of our Studio fires.

E-Studio fires are available as an option with many Gazco fire frames.

Logic

logic

Logic Fires are available in 16" widths and are the easiest of all our fires to install, giving you excellent value for money through reduced installation costs. Logic fires are available in Hotbox, Convector and HE versions and are all Reduced Draught fires, meaning that in all cases a wall or floor vent is not required.

Logic fires are available as an option with many Gazco fire frames.

VFC

Variable Flame Controls.vfc convector

VFC Convectors: Available in 16" and 22" widths, the VFC Convector is our most versatile fire. It is suitable for brick chimneys only but offers the additional benefits of a slightly deeper fuel bed and unique VFC (varible flame control) system. This allows you to select the exact balance of flame, glow and heat to suit your mood. Reduced draught versionts are also available if you do not want a wall or floor vent installed.vfc tapered

VFC Tapered (Radiant): These fires are for those who want all the visuals of a Gazco fire but do not require the additional heat of a convector or do not wish to refurbish an existing open fireplace. Tapered fires are available in 16" and 22" widths and can generally be fitted into existing openings without further building work.

Realistic Logs & Flames

Our most advanced gas fires include the very latest ceramic log fuel bed and flame effect, which give a stunningly realistic real fire effect.

Command Controls

Gazco was the first UK company to introduce remote controls for gas fires. Today our Command remote control systems allow most fires to be upgraded, either at the time of purchase or a later date with either:

Standard upgradable remote control: Once the pilot light has been ignited manually you can vary the remotesflame height and heat output from the comfort of your armchair.

Programmable remote control: This deluxe version has two additional features. The first allows you to thermostatically control the room temperature whilst the second allows you to programme your fire to switch itself on and off twice a day. Use both and you can even come home to a glowing fire that has heated the room to the temperature you select.

Some fires in the Gazco range come with the remote control included with the product, these are:remotes

Open Studio sequential remote control: With this infra red remote control, you do not need to light the pilot manually as the whole operating sequence (on/off and flame height heat output) is activated from the handset itself.

Open Fronted and Glass Fronted Studios:  All Open Fronted fires in the Studio range are supplied with a state-of-the-art Standard remote control, allowing you to operate everything from ignition to flame height and heat output from the comfort of your sofa. The Glass Fronted Studios come complete with a Programmable Thermostatic remote that includes additional benefits of a programmable timer and thermostatic controls, ensuring that whenever you return home, your house will always be warm and welcoming. Should you mislay your handset, all Studio fires come complete with a flat Touch Control panel that can be discreetly wall mounted up to 2.5 metres away from the fire allowing you to ignite, extinguish and control the flame height with ease.

Linea and Riva2 sequential remote: This programmable, radio frequency remote control offers all of the features of the Open Studio sequential remote but with the additional benefits of programmable thermostatic and timer functions.

Electric Riva: This remote operates the electric Riva, allowing you at the touch of a button to choose between four different flame effects, with or without heat.

Heat Retaining Lining

Fitted in Studio fires with a log fuel bed and Riva2 fires. The Heat Retaining lining stores heat from the fire while it is in use and radiates the stored heat back into the room even when the fire is switched off, offering you greater heating efficiency and fuel economy.

Single Ribbon Flames

A contemporary flame effect available with any Open Studio fire with White Stone fuel bed - a single ribbon of modulating flames dancing over a bed of small white stones.
