    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.

    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.

    can this stove be fitted with direct air supply. Is a kit available?
    A:
    Hi Andrew,
    Thank you for your question.
    The Ekol stoves range currently does not have any direct air capabilities.
    Here is a selection of SIA approved stoves of similar power output with extenal air kits available - https://www.directstoves.com/stoves/ecodesign-stoves.html?external_combustion_kit=yes&output=7-1-to-8kw

    Here are the same filters applied to Defra approved stoves - https://www.directstoves.com/stoves/defra-stoves.html?external_combustion_kit=yes&output=7-1-to-8kw

    Hope this helps?

    Can stove be swept internally,
    A:
    Hi Gary,
    Thank you for your question.
    I asked the nice people at Ekol about this for you and they said: "It is possible to clean the chimney through the Ekol Crystal 8kW stove but it IS very fiddly to get the baffle plate in and out of the stove." They would recommend a stove pipe with an access door, just to cut down on time and potential swearing from your sweep.
    Hope this helps?
    Kind regards

    Hi there, Can you use a LookRyt Baffled AirCore (https://www.glowing-embers.co.uk/flue-accessories-air-bricks-ventilation-kits-c-70_89_99/aircore-ventilator-baffled-terracotta-125mm-ac7-p-3181?m1track=googlebase&gclid=Cj0KCQjwjbveBRDVARIsAKxH7vlf86fdAvmO3Zw53vEkdHrMiX8yYf9TaLnI6NKmJKNYMeUzRN5UsIQaAuKwEALw_wcB#RoyalMailExport) with this stove for suffiecient ventalation? Also, can it be installed directly behind the stove for aesthetics and cosmetics rather than it being place elsewhere? Thanks
    A:
    Hi Kev,
    Thank you for your question.
    With regard to the air flow needed for the Ekol Crystal 8kW stove this air vent would be more than sufficient, it's suitable for stoves up to 14kW.
    You wouldn't be able to install directly behind the stove as the vent cover is plastic and therefore combustible.
    You must not have any combustible material within 400mm of the rear of the stove.
    If you are worried how the vent looks, can we suggest a Ryton Lookryt vent instead?
    These have a plain cover for inside your home that can be painted or wallpapered to match your decor.

    With this model and heat output, will I require an air vent to be installed and if so, what size please ?
    A:
    Hi Adrian,
    Thank you for your question.
    The Ekol Crystal 8 stove will need an air vent in the room.
    The official numbers on air vents are 550mm² per kW for stoves with output over 5kW.
    So for the Crystal 8 you will need an air vent not less than 1650mm² (16.5cm²)
    Most 125mm (5-inch) air vents are well in excess of this measurement.
    Hope this helps?
    Kind regards,
