Wood burning & Multi fuel stoves - state of the art
Airwash is part of Stovax’s firebox air flow
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
Stoves with a Boiler Option are designed to be
fitted with a separate ‘clip in’ boiler which can provide domestic
hot water and/or run radiators as part of a stand alone system.
Alternatively, you can ‘link up’ a stove with
your existing heating system. The ‘link up’ system can connect with
gas or oil sealed heating systems, combi’s, underfloor heating,
advanced electronic controls and solar panels, helping to save
money on fossil fuels and reducing your reliance on single source
We recommend that you discuss these options
with your Stovax retailer to further understand your
Carbon Neutral Energy
Burning wood in a Stovax stove provides you
with Carbon Neutral Energy.
Wood is better in environmental terms than
fossil fuels as the amount of carbon dioxide released into the
atmosphere is approximately the same as that absorbed by the tree
It is also a renewable
resource, particularly when derived from plantations and cultivated
woodland. For optimum results, we recommend logs should be
seasoned for 2 years or more to achieve a moisture content below
20%. This will not only give up to twice the output of freshly
felled timber but help avoid a build up of tar in your stove's
flue. Furthermore, if you can obtain hardwood logs this is better
still, as they will have around twice the calorific value of
Cleanburn is part of Stovax’s Triple Air
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
A stove with Cleanburn will give you more heat
output from your fuel.
Heat Output to Water
In addition to heating your living space,
these stoves can also produce heat output to water to supply your
domestic hot water and central heating requirements.
Stainless Steel Baffle
Most stoves are fitted with a baffle, which increases efficiency
by ensuring as much heat as possible is extracted from the fuel
before waste products of combustion are emitted via the chimney.
Stainless steel baffle's are a further enhancement and last longer
than standard steel parts.
Wood burning Only Version
Wood burns best on a bed of ash, so wood
burning only versions of stoves and fires have a flat fuel bed and
All multi fuel stoves can burn wood, however
multi fuel stoves have a riddling grate. This allows the ash and
cinders from smokeless fuels, anthracite or peat/turf briquettes to
be riddled into an ashpan below, creating the optimum conditions
for efficient combustion of those particular fuels.
Single Combustion Control Lever
As the name implies, a single lever controls
all the stove’s air flows for the easiest possible operation.
Use this setting when lighting or re-fuelling
your stove to quickly bring the fire up-to full strength.
When burning logs, the unique ‘Opti-Burn’
setting can be used to provide the optimum heating efficiency and
Approved for Smoke Control Areas
Most town and city homes are located in Smoke
Control Areas as designated by the Clean Air Act 1993.
To burn logs on a stove in these locations,
the model installed must have been granted exemption from the
regulations by the government through DEFRA.
This exemption is given only to appliances
which have been independently tested to demonstrate particularly
Any Stovax stoves shown as Approved for Smoke
Control Areas can be used in these areas when fitted with the
appropriate smoke control kit.
Cooking Accessories (Regency)
Cast into the side panel of every Regency is a
support bracket into which a Stovax barbecue or Stovax bean pot may
Each of these is manufactured from cast iron
and is supplied with a swinging arm which locates into the support
The Regency has an optional firescreen.
Recommended because unlike other stoves the Regency is mainly used
with the doors open.
Brass Rail Set (Regency)
The polished brass balls seen on the Regency
are supplied as standard. The brass rail set is an optional extra
to further enhance the period look.

Cast Iron Construction
Cast Iron remains the material of choice for
many premium quality stoves. This is because of the way cast iron
diffuses warmth, giving maximum radiant heat over a period of
Further, the iron can be cast more thickly in
areas where greater strength is needed, whilst additionally
allowing attractive designs to be cast into the stove panels.
Thermostatic controls allow you to maintain a
constant, comfortable, temperature from your stove.
Enamel is a thin coating of coloured glass
which is fired on to a metal surface. To achieve its translucent
and lustrous finish, each casting is especially designed for
enamelling and is coated and fired twice. Enamel is an option on

Command Remote Controls
Remote controls are automatically supplied
with some models and may be options with others. In general,
however, there are three types of control:
Standard remote control: Once
the pilot light has been ignited manually you can vary the flame
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.
VeriFlame™ remote control (Electric
Stoves): Unique on the market, Gazco's VeriFlame
technology produces the ultimate in realistic fire effects. The
complementary remote control allows you to independently adjust the
speed of the flames and the fuel bed intensity and flame level on
five different settings from low to high, to produce the exact
ambience you require. Complete flexibility at the touch of a
button. There are also discreetly concealed manual controls should
the batteries in the remote run out of power.
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.
