  • Liner Pack & Stove Kits

    Direct Stoves Offer Free Stove Fitting Kits*

    • Stove Pipe

    • Register Plate
      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.

    Can you tell me where the gas inlet is
    Hi Luke,
    Thank you for your question.
    The gas inlet on the Firefox 8 Gas Stove is underneath the stove on the right hand side as you are facing the stove.

    Could this firefox 8 be used with a balance flu?coming out the top then through my wall?
    Hi Lloyd,
    Thank you for your question.
    Sorry no, it isn't possible to use a balanced flue with this gas stove. We don't have any balanced flue stoves at the moment.
    We stock regular gas stoves which require a full flue system and we also stock a number of flueless gas stoves - https://www.directstoves.com/gas-stoves/flueless-gas-stoves.html
    Hope this helps?

    I have looked at the manual and on page 7 it says conversion to LPG is not permitted when using the log set - only coal effect. Have I misread this or missed something as you have allowed input of logs and LPG conversion?
    Hi Irena,
    Thank you for your question.
    You are correct, the log version of the Firefox 8 gas stove is not suitable for LPG conversion, only the coal fuel bed version can be converted to LPG.
    Thank you for pointing out our mistake, I've updated the listing now. Please accept our apologies for any confusion this has caused.

    Can you convert the fire fox with a horizontal flue kit
    Hi George,
    Thank you for your question.
    The Firefox 8 has a top exit flue and must be installed in a Class 1 chimney or connected to
    a Class 2 gas flue.
    From the installation guide - " Any deviation from a vertical flue run should be kept to a minimum, an offset in the first 600mm of the flue is acceptable providing any deviation from the vertical is no greater than 45 degrees and the maximum distance of the offset is no greater than 200mm. A draught is necessary to ensure the products of combustion are fully evacuated. Connect and seal the stove flue collar to the chimney using full depth of collar. The flue must have a minimum effective height of 3 metres (10ft), however, to ensure optimum performance we recommend 3.66 metres (12ft) or higher."

    You can download the full installation guide on the product page from the "Downloads" tab

    The Firefox 8 is listed as having log effect, however, the specification just says coal effect- does it have a log effect fuel bed available?
    HI Michelle,
    Thank you for your question.
    Sorry for the confusion, we were doing some inventory updates.
    This one is the log effect model.
    If you'd prefer a coal effect model you can find it here: https://www.directstoves.com/firefox-8-coal-effect-gas-stove.html
