One of the most effective and economical ways of heating a living space is to install a closed combustion fireplace. This type of fireplace burns far more efficiently than an open fire. It’s also safer, less messy and attractive to look at.
Here we offer an introduction to just a few of our favourites, selected from the range of closed combustion fireplaces we offer in South Africa.
The Blaze Curve wood-burning fireplace has a large, curved glass window that gives a great view of the fire inside.
The design is sleek and modern, but also efficient and space-saving. With a 520 x 430 mm footprint, the Curve takes up less space than average but still easily heats areas as large as 90 square metres.
The Blaze Curve has a double combustion wood-burning chamber that is twice as efficient as a traditional open fireplace. This means you not only use less wood, but your fire will result in lower emissions.
The Blaze Curve also features:
- three airflow adjustors for adjusting the combustion rate and heat level
- a high-quality, 50 mm cast iron base
- a multigrate for better airflow.
Dovre is a Belgian family-run business that has been operating for over 80 years.
The company designed the Dovre Sense closed combustion fireplace to be exceptionally clean-burning and energy-efficient. Its thermal efficiency is up to 60% greater than an open fireplace.
The Sense’s slim design features a large viewing window and its elegant curved edges highlight the quality of the lacquered cast iron finish. The Sense’s door has an innovative slam-lock mechanism for added safety.
The Dovre Sense also features:
- dual combustion closed system for higher burn temperatures
- an “airwash” system that keeps the window clean and clear
- combustible flue gases are consumed, resulting in fewer emissions.
