CHIMNEYS, FLUES & FIREPLACES AGA’S LITTLE WENLOCK IS INSTALLED STEP-BY-STEP, STOVAX HIGHLIGHTS THE IMPORTANCE OF EDUCATING PEOPLE ON FIRESIDE AMBIENCE AND SCHIEDEL TAKES A CLOSE LOOK AT THE CONSUMER RIGHTS ACT 2015 Infinity 480BF fire out Shop online with confidence with Euroheat Charlton and Jenrick is launching the Infinity 480BF to expand the adaptable range of rear vented balanced flue gas fires it now offers. The size of the 480BF means that it will fit into the majority of fireplace designs and offers improved aesthetics over traditional 16” inch fires. The 480BF achieves an extremely impressive net efficiency of 86% from an economically modest 2.6kW input. The fire offers a great flame picture and exceptional warmth in the room. The ceramic glass viewing area of the Infinity 480BF is the same size as the 480FL, which means the new fire is compatible with the Infinity fireplace package designs already available, including the ever popular Beckford & Stokesay suites. The fire is designed to allow the option to be fitted within a standard 3” rebated surround, which in most cases, will allow for simple installation. For ultimate flexibility, the firebox has also been specifically developed to allow the appliances to be fitted into a modern cavity wall with a minimum cavity size of 50mm, which again, in most cases, will result in a straightforward fit. To maintain a more minimalistic look, the flue outlet is at the rear of the unit, ensuring that everything is concealed within the header of the fireplace suite, with flue length options from a minimum of 100mm, to a maximum of 600mm. There is an optional timber frame kit available to allow for safe and easy fitting of the fire into a timber framed house.

These include a Store version of the Ivar 5, with a convenient log storage shelf under the stove and larger Ivar 8 stoves, again in High, Low and Store options. The new models have a higher heat output of up to eight kW, enough for a larger than average living room. They have large viewing windows, which are easy to clean and give an uninterrupted view of the impressive fire display, which can be adjusted with the user-friendly air slider. In addition, there is a detachable ‘cold touch’ handle for ease and safety of operation. For those people that prefer to burn coal or coke, all Ivar stoves can be turned into multi-fuel versions with the addition of the custom-made multi-fuel kit. All Dik Geurts wood stoves have external air connection as standard. This helps achieve maximum clean burning and, in the case of Ivar, impressive energy efficiency ratings from 77 to 82%. The chimney or flue connections on all models can be made from the top or the back of the stoves for greater flexibility of installation. enquiry number 147 enquiry number 145 HEATING & PLUMBING MONTHLY NOVEMBER 2015 91
