”Stovax Limited and Gazco Limited Safeguard Statement”
“Important considerations before making your purchase:
The importance of visiting a Retailer
Stovax Limited and Gazco Limited take great care to ensure their products are designed and manufactured to
the highest possible quality and safety standards, and it is vital that they are sold and installed correctly. Stovax
Limited and Gazco Limited recommend that a pre-site survey is carried out prior to purchase to ensure that your
chosen appliance will be installed in accordance with all local and national regulations. For this reason, Stovax
Limited and Gazco Limited strongly encourage you to visit one of its qualified independent retailers, who will be
able to provide you with the best support both before and after making your purchase.
Please be aware that Stovax Limited and Gazco Limited do not offer technical support to products bought via
nationwide online sales, where a Stovax Limited and/or Gazco Limited qualified independent retailer would
otherwise offer this support.
Your Retailer will be responsible for ensuring that the installation complies with relevant Building Regulations
and the rules in force, and is carried out by a suitably trained and qualified individual (HETAS registered or Gas
Safe registered in the United Kingdom or equivalent in other countries) with a certificate of installation and the
appropriate commissioning report completed and retained by the end-user. These can be found within your
Installation and User Manual.
Statutory rights under the Consumer Rights Act 2015 as a purchaser of products manufactured by Stovax
Limited and Gazco Limited are primarily against the retailer. Traditional methods of purchase may provide
more direct/additional means of communicating such rights.”
PLEASE NOTE – All the fires are 86% efficient with a Class C energy rating. Most of the fires are balanced flue only(see below for details on a balanced flue) SOME ARE AVAILABLE IN CONVENTIONAL FLUE CONTACT US ON
What type of Flue do you have?
Conventional flue systems are easily recognisable as either a conventional brick or stone chimney, pre-fabricated or pre-cast chimney system. Should your home have none of these at present, it is usually possible to have a pre-fabricated system installed in your home if required.
Brick/Stone Chimney (Class 1)
The chimney stack rises well above the roofline and is topped by a traditional chimney pot or gas terminal. This type of chimney relies on the natural circulation of heating air to expel the products of combustion up your chimney.
Pre-fabricated Flues (Class 1 & 2)
You will see a metal flue cowl on your roof. Some are all metal whilst others may terminate through a short rectangular pot (but without a chimney stack). These flues create the same circulation of heated air as a brick or stone chimney.
Pre-cast Flue (Class 2)
Many modern homes have been built with such flues. You can readily identify them by either a metal flue cowl or a raised ridge terminal on your roof. The natural circulation of heated air expels the products of combustion.
These flues tends to be very shallow in depth so a slimmer fire is often required. Deep appliances however may be able to be installed with the use of either a spacer kit or deeper rebate into the fireplace.
Balanced Flue (No chimney required)
Balanced flues work in conjunction with Gazco’s Glass Fronted gas stoves or fires. The appliance is completely sealed from the room into which it is installed (so there are no draughts and heating efficiency is increased) and a twin-wall pipe vents directly to an outside wall.
Air for combustion is drawn in through the outer pipe whilst the inner pipe removes the combustion gases to the exterior of the property.
Depending on the stove or fire selected, the twin-walled pipe may exit horizontally through an external wall or vertically through the roof.
