Fireplace for giving


The so-called panoram­ic glaz­ing (in the form of a bay win­dow) of the fire­place stove allows you to admire the play of the flame from almost any­where in the room SCAN

The air nec­es­sary for com­bus­tion enters the fire­box of the fire­place stove in two ways: through a spe­cial pipe at the rear wall and from the top in front- above the glass door Despite their rel­a­tive­ly small size (6247117cm) Stu­pen­da fire­place stove from PIAZZETTA devel­ops pow­er 8kW.

Com­pact fire­place stoves are not equipped with any sys­tems that allow dis­trib­ut­ing heat­ed air to oth­er rooms. You will have to solve this prob­lem on your own, using, for exam­ple, fans and air pipes.

ATAc­cord­ing to the method of instal­la­tion, fire­place stoves are divid­ed into three groups. The first two groups are the same as the clas­sic mod­els: frontal (wall) and cor­ner. ATIn the lat­ter case, they can have both tri­an­gu­lar and quad­ran­gu­lar (in terms of) body shape and be equipped with both one and two doors. Third group- fire­place stoves of round, oval, hexag­o­nal and any oth­er (in terms of) shape, which can be installed even in the mid­dle of the room, mak­ing them, so to speak, the “core” of its design.

Man­u­fac­tur­ers. Both domes­tic and for­eign com­pa­nies are engaged in the pro­duc­tion of com­pact stoves-fire­places. In appear­ance and cost, domes­tic prod­ucts dif­fer marked­ly from for­eign ones: ours are sim­pler and cheap­er, import­ed ones are pret­ti­er, but more expen­sive.

Of the domes­tic man­u­fac­tur­ers, the most famous are PROKK ENERGOTEKS (offer­ing two mod­els) and META (sev­en mod­els). Not so long ago, “ZAVOD FEHRINGER and Co.” and “TEPLODAR”, which released one mod­el of stoves-fire­places. From the enter­pris­es of the near abroad, the Belaru­sian-Ger­man enter­prise “VITEP” (six mod­els) sup­plies its prod­ucts to our mar­ket. The list­ed com­pa­nies offer, so to speak, the cheap­est prod­ucts. The aver­age price cat­e­go­ry rep­re­sent­ed by recent­ly intro­duced HAAS prod­ucts on the market+SOHN (Czech Repub­lic) and ALFA PLAM (Ser­bia). The most expen­sive prod­ucts are offered by such for­eign com­pa­nies as HARK and MAX BLANK (Ger­many), SUPRA and GODIN (France), HARVIA (Fin­land), EDILKAMIN, PIAZZETTA and NORDICA (Italy) and some oth­ers.

Pel­let fire­places

These fire­places came to us from Europe quite recent­ly and have not yet aroused much inter­est among the Euro­pean buy­er. How­ev­er, in Europe the demand for them is great, as, indeed, for pel­let boil­ers oper­at­ing on wood-shav­ing pel­lets or pel­lets (more on this type of fuel- see the review arti­cle “Gran­u­lat­ed Heat”).

Pel­let fire­place- this is, in prin­ci­ple, the same calorif­ic stove-fire­place, only work­ing on a slight­ly dif­fer­ent type of fuel than wood- pel­lets. They are loaded into a spe­cial con­tain­er inside the fire­place and fed into the fur­nace auto­mat­i­cal­ly, using a screw con­vey­or, which makes it pos­si­ble to con­trol the com­bus­tion process and change the heat out­put. The dimen­sions of the device with place­ment inside its fuel stor­age bunker prac­ti­cal­ly do not change- it remains small and com­pact.

There are sev­er­al advan­tages of such fire­places over wood-burn­ing ones. First­ly, pel­lets have a high­er calorif­ic val­ue than fire­wood (there is no mois­ture in them). Sec­ond­ly, the dense struc­ture of the pel­lets sig­nif­i­cant­ly reduces the size of the stor­age for them. Packed in paper bags, clean and pro­tect­ed from exter­nal influ­ences, the pel­lets can be stored in a garage, clos­et and even in liv­ing quar­ters. Third­ly, com­bus­tion con­trol is entrust­ed to the micro­proces­sor- it con­stant­ly opti­mizes the process by sup­ply­ing a strict­ly metered amount of air into the cham­ber. Final­ly, fourth­ly, in the event of an emer­gency, the proces­sor stops the fuel sup­ply, and the flame goes out in a mat­ter of min­utes.

ATin gen­er­al, you just have to load fuel into the cham­ber in time and set the unit to the desired pow­er lev­el (adjustable remote­ly). It will do every­thing else for you and will auto­mat­i­cal­ly con­tin­ue to work for about 72h- so much one bag of pel­lets is enough. Pel­let fire­places also have dis­ad­van­tages. First­ly, in EU, the domes­tic mar­ket for pel­let fuel has not been formed. Sec­ond­ly, you will not admire the play of flame in such a fire­place: pel­lets burn in a very pecu­liar way. Alas!

In the Euro­pean mar­ket, this class of fire­places is offered by com­pa­nies PIAZZETTAHARK, EDILKAMIN andother cost- from 4000.

Design and styles

It is worth dwelling on the meth­ods of fin­ish­ing com­pact devices in more detail. It is clear that the body of the fire­place stove with­out fin­ish­ing resem­bles an unsight­ly met­al cab­i­net. The eas­i­est way to give it a “decent” look- cov­er with heat-resis­tant paint (black, dark gray, less often- metal­lic sil­ver) and com­ple­ment with shiny han­dles. This is the way many man­u­fac­tur­ers go. Received Style- some­thing between high tech and post-con­struc­tivism.

Anoth­er vari­ant- in addi­tion to paint­ing, equip the fire­place with var­i­ous inserts made of ceram­ic, nat­ur­al (mar­ble, gran­ite, soap­stone or soap­stone mag­ne­site) and arti­fi­cial stone. These details not only dec­o­rate the prod­uct, but also play the role of heat accu­mu­la­tors: first they accu­mu­late heat, then slow­ly release it. Of course, the more inserts, the more expen­sive the fire­place. The most expen­sive inserts are made of talc chlo­ride and tal­co­mag­ne­site. Style- between post-con­struc­tivism and moder­ni­ty.

Option three: the entire body is cov­ered with ceram­ics or nat­ur­al stone. Expen­sive (3000–3500), but beau­ti­ful. Man­u­fac­tur­ers usu­al­ly define this style as mod­ern. In terms of design, anoth­er class of out­ward­ly sim­i­lar devices is close to this option.- the so-called ceram­ic fire­places (the cas­ing is entire­ly made of ceram­ics). These are very beau­ti­ful prod­ucts, although more expen­sive.- from 3500. But among them you can find devices, for exam­ple, in the form of an invert­ed drop (mod­el Stu­pen­da from PIAZZETTA) or a bee­hive with a semi­cir­cu­lar roof (Liv­ing from EDILKAMIN).

The Aura stove from SPARTERM will be a wor­thy dec­o­ra­tion of any inte­ri­or Fireplace for givingPIAZZETTA

A round ceram­ic fire­place stove can be installed even in the cen­ter of the heat­ed room

Man­u­fac­tur­ers “sculpt” the image of the fire­place not only due to the fin­ish, but also with the help of plas­tic form. Imag­ine a round or rec­tan­gu­lar pipe from floor to ceil­ing, into which a fire­place stove has been “cut” at about a third of the height. The low­er part of the pipe rests on a plate of a rather large area and serves as a stand for the heat­ing device itself. ATin the upper part there is a chim­ney and chan­nels through which warm air ris­es (in these designs it heats up not only inside the case, but also thanks to the hot chim­ney). Such fire­places are sup­plied to us by com­pa­nies SUPRA (mod­el Louisiana 2, 3600), TRAFORART (Spain), GODIN (France), SCAN (Den­mark) and a num­ber of oth­ers. If the pipe is round, man­u­fac­tur­ers can make the fire­place rotate (of course, the price will imme­di­ate­ly go beyond the spec­i­fied lim­its). Exam­ple- mod­el Mega Ele­gans from MAX BLANK (Ger­many, 4500).

Quite inter­est­ing look stoves-fire­places, hav­ing cylin­dri­cal shape. They are usu­al­ly equipped with a semi­cir­cu­lar pro­tec­tive glass that ris­es up. ATex­am­ples include Aura by SPARTERM (Ger­many) or Mar­morkamin by HARK. There are also quite orig­i­nal rec­tan­gu­lar and polyg­o­nal (in terms of) floor-to-ceil­ing stove-fire­places, equipped with a panoram­ic fire­box. Sim­i­lar prod­ucts are offered by CAMINA and NIBE (Swe­den), GODIN and some oth­ers.

Mod­els with a “pedestal”. These are the same com­pact fire­place stoves, but installed on a spe­cial­ly made podi­um with shelves and oth­er attrib­ut­es typ­i­cal of a clas­sic fire­place. Such “pedestals” are made of light­weight con­crete (a stand for the stove itself), col­ored ceram­ics or even wood and imi­tate the old rus­tic style. Sim­i­lar prod­ucts are offered by HARK (mod­els 34S.47K.52K, from 3400), PIAZZETTA (Mom and Mo1, about 4000), SPARTERM (Tra­di­tionell series), KAUFMANN (Ger­many) and many oth­ers.

When choos­ing a fire­place with a pedestal, con­sid­er the fol­low­ing con­sid­er­a­tions. First­ly, such a device may not fit into the exist­ing inte­ri­or of the dacha and will “drag” behind it (like a steam loco­mo­tive wag­ons) home repairs and the acqui­si­tion of new fur­nish­ings. Sec­ond­ly, a beau­ti­ful pedestal- the thing is quite expen­sive, its cost can eas­i­ly exceed 4000.

Here, per­haps, are all the options for a coun­try fire­place that we want­ed to talk about in this review. But we do not close the top­ic- ahead of the con­ver­sa­tion about the “clas­sic” fire­place. ATin gen­er­al, to be con­tin­ued.

The edi­tors would like to thank the firms LOKI, DAK HALL, SALON FIREPLACES ON LENINSKY for their help in prepar­ing the mate­r­i­al.
