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.
A brand new, extra wide 5kW design from Ekol Stoves. Based on the Clarity 12 stove but with a reduced depth, you can install this stove free standing against a wall or in shallower fireplaces.
Here we have the Future Fires Panoramic FX1 which is an oval stove with very wide window. At 8 kW this stove is suited to the medium sized room and the shape and very wide window will make an impression on any room.
One of the classic Vermont stoves, the Intrepid is popular with existing and new owners alike and the woodburner is now Defra Exempt. The Vermont Intrepid has the trademark window tracery, firechamber catalyst, optional warming shelves and is available in a range of fine enamelled colours.
The Scandfire Opus 70 gives you the Scandfire all-in-one system that arrives on site ready to assemble. The Opus 70i woodburning inset stove sits in a solid chamber in the room from which the pumice chimney continues on and out.
The Skanterm Emotion S can be rotated on its log store by 120º, has a huge panoramic window spanning most of the front face of the stove which has a unique eye shape. A 4kW, 82.3% efficient woodburner, the Skanterm Emotion S functions as well as it looks.
The Skantherm Emotion M is an eye-shaped contemporary stove with a large window stretching nearly the full width of the stove. At 7kW the Emotion M is a designer stove suited to heating a medium/large room.
The Mendip Ashcroft is a simply designed stove with a big glass and a less than 5kw output.
The 6100 come in 4 different formats. The 6140 is the smallest model and the firebox will of course be the same on all 4 models.
The 6143 has a taller log store under the stove making the height 950mm.
The smallest of the Invicta Sedan models but with all the attributes that cast iron brings, the S has a 5kW heat output for smaller rooms or where it is a secondary heat source. Being cast iron it gives a more even heat distribution and allows the stored energy to continue to heat the space after the fire has gone out.
The small Aduro 16 is the baby of the range but still gives a heat output of 5kw.
The Aduro 15 stove is available in a few different versions. This has a solid base.
The Opus Melody is a design classic, a lovely cylindrical stove that burns beautifully and very efficiently.
The pedestal and side glass panels make up the Aduro 9-3 woodburning stove.
The 9 Air is the model to choose if you have a well sealed house and need to fit a direct air supply.
The Future Fires Panoramic FX2 is a smaller version of the FX1, featuring an output of 5kW.
The Firebelly FB stove is the baby of the Firebelly stove range. At 4kW the Firebelly FB is a woodburning stove suited to the smaller room.
The Firebelly FB2 is perhaps the best known Firebelly stove and is really the stove which I would say made their name. The FB2 is a nicely proportioned contemporary stove with a heat output of 12kW, making it suited to the medium sized room or as secondary heating in a larger room.
The Duo 2 is probably the most unusual model - this has a side loading log store so that the logs are not visible from the front of the model.
The Duo 4 has a door on the compartment below the fire door.
