  • Description


    The Esse FG525 Flueless gas stove stands solidly on two full height stainless tubular steel legs available in either black or stainless steel finish. It has a steel top that has been laser cut to echo the curve of the legs. The result is a clean contemporary look with a softer edge and uncluttered view of the stunning log effect.

    By using the latest catalytic technology all burnt gas emissions from the Esse 525 Flueless are 'scrubbed' clean and leave the stove as warm clean air. In addition to ease of location, catalytic technology also offers 100% efficiency. No energy is wasted up a chimney, so all the heat generated warms your room which in turn lowers running costs.

    The Esse FG 525 is suitable for natural gas or LPG and has an optional remote control.

      for protection


    What's included in the offer:

    • 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.

    Hi I’m looking to install a fluless esse FG525 within a fire place area with chimney, is this ok?
    Thank you for your question.

    Yes, it's fine to fit a flueless gas stove in a chimney area.

    Many Thanks

    If using lpg bottled gas, is the bottle hidden within the fire? Or would it need to be stored elsewhere and connected by a pipe?
    Hi Gill,
    Thank you for your question.
    The Esse FG525 flueless gas stove would need to be connected to the gas supply via a pipe.
    There is nowhere to store an LPG bottle within the stove.
    Hope this helps?

    I have had a flueless gas fire in the past and gave up on it because of the odour emitted when on. Does this unit give off any odour?
    Hi Dave,
    Thank you for your question.
    The Esse FG525 flueless gas fire shouldn't give off any odour once the paint has cured.
    All Esse stoves whether wood, coal or gas are treated with the same high-temperature paint finish which takes a few initial burns to fully cure.
    During the curing process there will be an odour, but this goes away fairly quickly.
    Hope this helps?
    Kind regards,

    Hello Q1 What sort of base does the stove need to sit on please, present flooring is vinyl laminate? Q2 If I don't fit the stove on the floor/at floor level I'm thinking of raising it up by say 250mm on a metal or perhaps a stone feature stand. Is there any reason why I shouldn't do that, please? Many thanks in anticipation
    Hi Graham,
    Thank you for your questions.
    A laminate floor is not a suitable base for this stove, it must be sited on a non-combustible hearth that is at least as big as the footprint of the FG525, glass, steel or stone hearths are all suitable for this type of stove.
    You can raise the stove if you wish, the metal or stone structure again, would have to be at least as big as the stove footprint.
    Your GasSafe installer will be able to go through the options specific to your property with you.
    Hope this helps?
    Kind regards,

    On the ease sg525 we wanted the black flue pipe to make the electric fire look as authentic as possible. are you able to include in price?
    Hi Jamie,
    Thank you for your question.
    The Esse FG525 is a flueless gas stove not an electric stove.
    There isn't anywhere on this stove to fit a fluepipe as the top has heat vents in it that must be kept clear.
    Our other website has electric stoves, some of these have stove pipe options - https://www.direct-fireplaces.com/fires/electric-fires/electric-stoves.html
    Hope this helps?

    How is the Esse 525 Flueless Stove ignited, does it need to be plugged into a socket of it it a simple push button ignition ?
    Hi Robert,
    Thank you for your question.
    The Manual & Remote control versions of Esse 525 flueless gas stove have an ignition system that is powered by 3 AA batteries, they don't need mains electric.
    Hope this helps?

    Hi do you need to have a vent , and will they let cols air into room. Thank you
    Hi Geraldine,
    Thank you for your question.
    An air vent is needed in the room to ensure the flueless gas fire has enough air to burn while the room remains safe with enough breathable air for you and your family.
    There are a wide range of "Draught-Free" vents available from home improvement stores such as B&Q, Wickes, Screwfix etc. or search online for "Draught-free vents"
    These vents allow the gas fire to draw enough air to burn efficiently but have baffles inside them to stop draughts when the fire isn't being used.
    Hope this helps?
    Kind regards,
    Customer Support answered on 25 September 2017
    If I install the fire in a current fireplace can the chimney be used as the incoming air vent?
    It's difficult to answer that without seeing the situation.

    The fitter would be able to confirm if that was possible. Although if you have a chimney you could go for the standard gas stove.

    Many Thanks

    Hi, what width needs to be left either side of the fire for heat circulation and for room to reach and operate the controls. Thank you
    Hi Jackie,
    Thank you for your question.
    The distances around the stove depend on the type of material surrounding it.
    If the material is non-combustible (brick, stone, concrete, marble, metal, etc.) then the minimum distances around the FG525 stove would be:
    Left side: 50mm, Right side: 100mm, Rear: 25mm, Top: 460mm
    However if the materials are combustible (wood, plaster, plasterboard, decorated wall etc) the minimum distances are greater: Left Side 100mm, Right Side: 100mm, Rear: 70mm Top: 940mm
    Full details are in the user manual on the "Downloads" tab.
    Hope this helps?
    Kind regards,
