      800mm x 400mm
    • Stove Glove
      for protection


    What's included in the offer:

    • 1. Black stove pipe. 
    • 2. A registration plate is used to seal the chimney opening off from the room preventing dust, soot, dirt and debris falling down the chimney. It also helps to prevent a draft coming down the chimney. We supply a standard 800mm x 400mm galvanised steel register plate with all our stoves. You will simply need to cut the plate to size to fit into your chimney opening.
    • 3. We also provide you with a single stove glove that you can use for stoking the fire and adding wood without the risk of personal injury.

    *Excludes electric stoves, flueless and balanced flue gas stoves - as these are not required.

    Optional Extras.

    Carbon Monoxide Detector:

    Due to an update to Building Regulations it is now law to have a Carbon Monoxide alarm present in any room with a solid fuel appliance:- The Building Regulations 2000 Approved Document J (2010 Edition) '2.34 Where a new or replacement fixed solid fuel appliance is installed in the dwelling, a carbon monoxide alarm should be provided in the room where the appliance is located.' 


    Flue Liner Packs:

    The flue liner pack consists of; a nose cone, to easily manoeuvre the flue liner into place, a flue adaptor, which connects the stove pipe to the flexible flue liner, Dura Flue flexible flue liner (this is 6" in diameter and 316 Grade) cut to the required length and a 6" pot hanger rain cap, this supports the flue liner from the top of the chimney and also acts as a bird guard and rain cap.



    Stove Pipe with Door:

    A stove pipe with door or access point, allows the chimney to be swept through the pipe itself.  




    Stove Glass Insurance:

    If you select to take out our stove glass insurance this covers your stove glass for the time period you select. If your glass breaks within that time period we will send you a replacement piece of glass regardless of the reason the glass broke. All we will ask is that you send a picture of the broken glass.
    The insurance only covers you for one replacement piece of glass. It doesn't cover you if you break the replacement piece of glass.
    All stove glass is covered during delivery and any glass broken in transit to you will be replaced free of charge, without affecting your stove glass insurance.



    Please make the relevant selection above when placing your order if you require any of these parts and also select whether or not you require a Carbon Monoxide alarm sending out with your order. Please note that if these parts aren't selected with your order we can't send them for free after your order has been delivered.

  • Delivery Info
    Free 1 Man Delivery

    Our "Free Delivery" is a one man service. The goods will arrive on a lorry that is about the size of a fire engine. (Please let us know in advance if you have restricted access.).

    The lorry has a tail lift that allows the driver to get the stove/oven off the vehicle, the stove/oven will be packed on a pallet and the driver will have a pallet truck.

    He'll be able wheel this as close as possible to your property, if you have a garage he'll be able to wheel it into there for you.

    The pallet truck can only be wheeled over a finished surface so it's not possible to wheel it over a gravelled drive nor is it possible to wheel up or down steps.

    The pallets are normally about a 1m wide so this is the minimum width gate they can fit through. Please note that the driver is not insured to unpack or carry the stove/oven into your house.

    If the goods are showing 24hr or 48hr delivery then this is the quickest time we're able to deliver these items. You'll be asked to select your a delivery date when purchasing the goods.

    Please note that it is an all day delivery.

    Two Man Delivery (£60)

    As the name suggests with our two man delivery service the goods will be delivered by two men. They will carry your stove into the room of your choice where possible. If the hallway is to narrow or they feel that they can’t fit it through the doorway safely they might not be able to get it into the room.

    They will normally carry it up 1 flight of stairs (if it's safe to do so) but this is at their discretion so if you have a 3rd floor flat please inform us before hand to avoid any issues during delivery.

    The two man delivery normally take 5 - 10 working days to be delivered from dispatch. Once the goods are in stock you will be contacted and delivery arranged.

  • Q & A

    Product Questions

    • Submit your question to our community.

    Can this stove be swept through the stove or does it need a door in the stove pipe please?
    Hi Sally,

    We've read the installation brochure attached and think a stove pipe with a door would be best with this model (Ekol Crystal 5 Defra Stove).

    There are no instructions within to sweep through.
    Hope this helps?
    Kind regards,

    What is a 'mirrored door glass' ? Does that mean you can not see the flames ? Thanks
    Hi Maria,
    Thanks for your question.
    Ekol mirrored door glass does show the flames through it, but it doesn't show the inside of the stove or any ash pile or cinders when the fire is not lit.
    A much tidier looking living room if you forgot to empty the ashpan last night.
    We think these look great or should that be "not grate"?
    Hope this helps?

    The specifications state that the distance required to combustibles at the side is 800mm and yet the promotional shot shows the stove clearly installed within a wooden fire surround which clearly isn't 800mm. Is this a typo?
    Hi JD,
    Thank you for your question.
    The Ekol Crystal 5 must have a distance to combustible materials of at least 800mm to each side and 820mm to the rear.
    The image was provided to us by the manufacturers and a little artistic licence has been used; we often get images showing stoves burning in the outdoors which we don't recommend either.
    I suppose it's the same as the car adverts with the deserted, rolling open road, I've been driving for 30 years and never seen one yet.
    Sorry for any confusion, I shall past your concerns on to the manufacturers.
    Kind regards,

    Hello is this stove black? It looks dark grey in the photo. Thanks, Julie
    Thank you for your question.

    This stove is painted metallic black. The photo does make it appear a bit on the grey side but that's just the light in the picture.

    Many Thanks

    I thought I could use coal as well as logs but some one told me coal will cause damage to the stove ?
    Hi Kathryn,
    Thank you for your question.
    The Ekol Crystal 5 stove is a wood or multifuel burning stove and is equally happy to burn either.
    We would suggest the first few hours of use should be using small wood fires as this helps to cure the painted surfaces.
    As long as you use seasoned wood or approved smokeless fuel you should have no problems with your Ekol stove.
    Hope this helps?
    Kind regards

    Does the stove have adjustable legs? If not, can you recommend a stove - Defra approved, suitable for 12mm hearths, 5kW - that does? Thanks
    Thank you for your enquiry.

    The Ekol Crystal 5 is suitable for a 12mm hearth. The legs don't have any leveling feet on them.

    Here are a couple of options for you to look at.




    If you have any other questions please feel free to call us on 0845 450 8351.

    Many Thanks

    Hi Nath,

    What size log does this take please?
    Hi Karen,
    Thanks for your question.

    Hope this helps?
