Dik Geurts (the brand under which DRU designs and manufactures its wood fires and stoves) has launched a new freestanding model – the Soren 5, part of a series that includes the popular Ivar and Aste. It has a classic rectangular shape with a distinctive new door design in a dark anthracite finish. The standard heat output is 4.9 kW so it can be used without additional ventilation and it has an A+ energy rating with 82% energy efficiency.
These stoves can be installed into existing UK fireplaces by hollowing out the chimneybreast and creating an inglenook fireplace. There are also freestanding models with various log storage options.
The Ivar 10 H2O Store is part of the company’s Green Design series of eco-friendly wood burning appliances. It is a smart and versatile wood stove with a substantial 4.7 kW room heating output, combined with a further 5.5 kW of water heating power. It has a stylish dark anthracite finish, easy slider controls, vermiculite interior and ample space underneath for log storage.
A water heating chamber is built into the back of the stove. This must be connected to a buffer tank that stores the hot water and distributes it to radiators around the home. The system can also be combined with solar panels for even greater energy efficiency.
The Odin is a stunning circular wood stove that can be wall-mounted or suspended from the ceiling. The latest model includes a sturdy base that takes up very little space in the living room but creates an impressive focal point. It is available in both single-sided Front or Tunnel models. The Tunnel version can be viewed from both sides, allowing the stove to be in the centre of a room for dramatic effect. It has a maximum 8 kW heat output with an energy efficiency rating of 75%.
The Instyle Corner Slim 660/570 is the latest in a series of built-in wood burning fires in single-sided, 2-sided, 3-sided and tunnel options. The 660/570 model has a compact size that is suitable for the conversion of a standard UK chimney or for installation in a false chimneybreast or room dividing wall. The 2-sided fire view provides a stunning addition to any living space, with a clear, unhindered view of the flames. It has a maximum heat output of 7.4 kW and an impressive 80% energy efficiency rating.
New Dik Geurts Instyle V Next built-in wood fires offer sustainable wood burning and rapid heating. They include all the Dik Geurts hallmarks of high energy efficiency, clean combustion and superior fire control combined with fan-assisted operation.
A special adapter gives full control of the fan. There are four speeds for gradual to fast heating. And, thanks to a smart control sensor, the fan automatically adjusts to the desired temperature.
Instyle V Next models are designed to fit perfectly in any chimney or wall, with a choice of 3 widths, 600, 700 and 800 mm. They have heat outputs from 3 to 12kW and A or A+ energy labels.
All the new Dik Geurts models are Ecodesign 2022 ready and have the option of an external air system that recirculates air from outside the building for combustion. They are available to be ordered now from DRU-approved UK fireplace retailers throughout the UK.
