A Defra Exempt stove has passed a lab test where its emissions are measured at its rated output and at a reduced rate. This is to help reduce air pollution in towns and cities that are Smoke Control Areas. A Defra Exempt stove can generally be used to burn wood in a Smoke Control Area - it actually depends what fuel the lab test was carried out with but this is nearly always firewood.
It is worth noting that the Ecodesign legislation which is due to come into force in 2022 sets what are arguably even stricter emissions limits than those set for Defra Exemption, but the framework doesn't include the low output test. We may well see the introduction of an additional low output test for stoves that can be used in Smoke Control Areas after 2022.

The smallest of the Opus Tempos yet it has the biggest window of any 5 kW stove on the market.
It may be small but it packs a punch as it produces 4kW's, ideal for those smaller fireplaces. Classical moulding on the big glass door enhances its appearance as do the angled legs which are an unusual feature. A great stove to chill out in front of after a busy day.
