      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 anyone tell me the estimated heat from the body of the fire, cheers.
    Hi Sally,
    Thank you for your question.
    I'm not exactly sure what you are asking, so here are a few options.
    Heat to room in kW - 4.4kW
    Heat to room in BTUs - 15013BTU
    The stove will heat rooms up to 66M3 without any problems.
    That's a room 5M x 5.5M with a 2.4M ceiling.
    The actual stove body can get very hot and may exceed 100°C
    Hope this helps?
    Kind regards,

    How should the vents in the doors and at the top front of the stove be set for the best wood burning performance
    Hi Ken,
    Thank you for your question.
    Here's what Hunter says in their user manual (Downloads tab on product page):
    To get the best results when burning wood, have both the air sliders fully open (both levers fully to the right) when starting your fire, use 1 or 2 firelighters.
    Once these have established flames, place kindling in a criss-cross pattern over the firelighters and close the door.
    When the kindling is well alight you can gradually add larger pieces of wood, closing the door afterwards.
    Once the fire is established, gradually close the Primary air slider in the door by sliding to the left.
    Then control the fire using the Secondary air slider above the door to raise or lower the rate of burn.
    Hope this helps?
    Kind regards,

    What solid fuel is best
    Hi Frank,
    Thank you for your question.
    Wow that's a tough one, we have an entire page on which fuel is best and don't really get to the definitive answer. https://www.directstoves.com/knowledge-base/home/guide-to-solid-fuels.html

    As you are looking at a Defra approved stove, I will assume you want to use it in a Smoke Control Area.
    You will only have the choice of wood, anthracite or manufactured smokeless coal. Of these, anthracite has the highest calorific value (9.2kWh/Kg) but is the most expensive at 41p/Kg.
    Many people are buying stoves as much for the way they look and they love the impressive flame patterns given from wood over those from coal.
    Hardwood is much better than softwood as it has a higher calorific value and is much denser so takes up less storage space, despite it's higher price.
    I would advise you to experiment and see which you prefer, and definitely get the opinion of your chimney sweep - he's the one that sees all the problems when people use the wrong fuel.
    Hope this helps?
    Kind regards,
