Built in fires - state of the art features
Radiant & Convected Heat
Radiant Heat: occurs when an object or surface
becomes warm and then emits the heat back in to the room. Certain
materials store heat particularly well and can radiate this stored
heat back into the room over an extended period.
Radiant heat will travel through the air from its source until
it hits an object, and the object (typically furniture or people)
will be heated.
Convected Heat: heats the air around the fire
or stove. Our convector fireplaces greatly enhance convected
heating efficiency. By drawing cool air through the grate and
heating it in a convection chamber before diffusing the warmed air
back into the room, the result is a heating efficiency twice that
of a traditional open fire.
Many fires and stoves use a combination of radiant and convected
External Air Facility
All fires require an air source to provide oxygen for
combustion. If the air is drawn from room in which the fire is
installed, this can cause draughts. The External Air Facility means
your fire will draw air from outside the room and reduce any
draughts, effectively increasing your heating efficiency.
Frameless Fire option
For those who require a minimalist look, frameless fires have no
exterior frame between the front of the fire and the wall.
Our high efficiency glass fronted fires do have a 27mm inner
frame that secures the glass in place.
Our convector fireplaces greatly enhance convected heating
efficiency. By drawing cool air through the grate and heating it in
a convection chamber before diffusing the warmed air back into the
room, the result is a heating efficiency twice that of a
traditional open fire.
Remote Control as Standard
Once the pilot light has been ignited manually you can vary the
flame height and heat output from the comfort of your armchair.
State of the art features - wood & multi fuel fires
Airwash is part of Stovax’s firebox air flow
Airwash is a design feature that uses a specially placed vent or
vents to draw in cool air from the outside to ‘wash’ over the
inside of the glass. This helps to keep the
glass cleaner for longer, allowing you to enjoy the glow and flames
to the full.
It is also used as primary combustion air when
Cleanburn is part of Stovax’s Triple Air
With Cleanburn, secondary air is pre-heated as
it passes through a heat exchanger chamber within the firebox. It
is then drawn into the smoke stream, where it combusts unburnt
hydrocarbons to provide a cleaner burn and greater thermal
A stove with the Cleanburn will give you more
heat output from your fuel.
Certain wood burning and multi fuel fires incorporate the
Opti-Burn. This setting means burning logs or smokeless
fuels with outstanding efficiency, resulting in more heat delivered
into the room and less going up the chimney.
Combustion is achieved by directing three separate airflows into
the firebox. Primary air burns the fuel under the fuel bed. The
Airwash flow helps keep the window clean and the
pre-heated, secondary air promotes cleanburning by the
combustion of excess hydrocarbons in the smoke,
Use this setting when lighting or re-fuelling your stove to
quickly bring the fire up-to full strength.
State of the art features - Built in gas fires
A top-of the range 16" wide fire that provides exceptional
heating efficiency and improved fuel economy. The fire is set
behind a virtually invisible glass window. Available in
conventional and balanced flue options and a choice of coal or
pebble effect fuel beds.
E-Box fires are available as an option with many Gazco fire
A very high efficiency 16" wide fire that is set behind a
virtually invisible glass window. E-Studio fires successfully
combine the technology of E-Box fires with the distinctive White
Stone ribbon flame effect of our Studio fires.
E-Studio fires are available as an option with many Gazco fire
Logic Fires are available in 16" widths and are the easiest of
all our fires to install, giving you excellent value for money
through reduced installation costs. Logic fires are available in
Hotbox, Convector and HE versions and are all Reduced
Draught fires, meaning that in all cases a wall or floor vent
is not required.
Logic fires are available as an option with many Gazco fire
Variable Flame Controls.
VFC Convectors: Available in 16" and 22"
widths, the VFC Convector is our most versatile fire. It is
suitable for brick chimneys only but offers the additional benefits
of a slightly deeper fuel bed and unique VFC (varible flame
control) system. This allows you to select the exact balance
of flame, glow and heat to suit your mood. Reduced draught
versionts are also available if you do not want a wall or floor
VFC Tapered (Radiant): These fires are for
those who want all the visuals of a Gazco fire but do not require
the additional heat of a convector or do not wish to refurbish an
existing open fireplace. Tapered fires are available in 16" and 22"
widths and can generally be fitted into existing openings without
further building work.
Realistic Logs & Flames
Our most advanced gas fires include the very latest ceramic log
fuel bed and flame effect, which give a stunningly realistic real
Gazco was the first UK company to introduce remote controls for
gas fires. Today our Command remote control systems allow most
fires to be upgraded, either at the time of purchase or a later
date with either:
Standard upgradable remote control: Once the
pilot light has been ignited manually you can vary the flame height
and heat output from the comfort of your armchair.
Programmable remote control: This deluxe
version has two additional features. The first allows you to
thermostatically control the room temperature whilst the second
allows you to programme your fire to switch itself on and off twice
a day. Use both and you can even come home to a glowing fire that
has heated the room to the temperature you select.
Some fires in the Gazco range come with the remote control
included with the product, these are:
Open Studio sequential remote control: With
this infra red remote control, you do not need to light the pilot
manually as the whole operating sequence (on/off and flame height
heat output) is activated from the handset itself.
Glass Fronted Studio, Linea and Riva2 sequential
remote: This programmable, radio frequency remote control
offers all of the features of the Open Studio sequential remote but
with the additional benefits of programmable thermostatic and timer
Electric Riva: This remote operates the
electric Riva, allowing you at the touch of a button to choose
between four different flame effects, with or without heat.
Heat Retaining Lining
Fitted in Studio fires with a log fuel bed and Riva2 fires. The
Heat Retaining lining stores heat from the fire while it is in use
and radiates the stored heat back into the room even when the fire
is switched off, offering you greater heating efficiency and fuel
Single Ribbon Flames
A contemporary flame effect available with any Open Studio fire
with White Stone fuel bed - a single ribbon of modulating flames
dancing over a bed of small white stones.
