The combustion chamber is lined with cast iron. Heat is diffused by radiation and convection through the front and the exterior of the fireplace. There are 2 air control levers below the door which give you ultimate control of the fire. One is for the Primary air, and the other is for the Secondary air and the Air wash system. It comes with Secondary combustion which improves the efficiency of the burning process; allows for less fuel usage and less exhaust emissions. A double baffle plate of stainless steel and vermiculite has been used for better control and regulation of the up draught. This also helps the heat stay in the combustion chamber for longer which increases the heat output. The ”clean glass” process is also reinforced when hot air is reflected towards the glass. The Vesta has a normal fuel consumption of 3.3kg per hour and the combustion chamber comfortably burns 35cm logs. It has a removable ash pan and a removable cast iron grate for easy cleaning.
An ‘optional extra’ external fresh air intake can be installed. An ‘optional extra’ fan kit with a thermostatically controlled fan is available (the fan stops when the fire goes out and requires an electrical connection). ‘Optional extra’ hot air ducting can be installed to heat adjacent rooms and the immediate room with forced ventilation. An ‘optional extra’ finishing frame can be ordered to give the installation a sophisticated final finish.
The Vesta is engineered to conform to EU standards and regulations, and is designed for strength and durability. It has been tested according to the strictest international safety standards. It’s imported from Greece and comes with a 5 year limited guarantee.
