What is an Biofireplace?

Bio fireplace is a non-chimney fireplace burning special liquid fuel - bio alcohol (bio ethanol). In Biokrb, a live yellow-orange burning fire with a heat output of up to several kW / H (depends on the volume of the burner) and their length) burns. You do not need a project or permit to assemble the biocrumb. Bio-feeds can be hanging, freestanding or table-based. 

Can Biofireplaces heat up?

Yes, but it's not his priority. The bio fireplace is primarily a design element in the room and the heat produced is only its added value. In Bio fireplaces, a real blazing flame burns and, like any fire, delivers heat. As soon as you light it, you feel a pleasant radiant heat directed towards the space and the ceiling. Bio-feeds can be used for heating but not for continuous heating.

Will the Biofireplace heat my room?

In most cases, yes, but it all depends on the heat losses of the building or the room in which the bio fireplace is located. In general, 1 kW / h of fireplace power is enough for 20 m3, but this is not a condition. Biofireplace are not intended for heating the room, since they burn oxygen in the place where they are located and the room needs to be ventilated.

How much is an hour of heating with Biofireplaces?

The cost of heating depends on the type of burner and their number in the organic fireplace. The bigger and longer the flame, the greater the fuel consumption. 1 liter of biofuel burns for 2-4 hours depending on the size of the burner, with one liter costing about 130 CZK. The conversion is only approximate and the price of operation also depends on the price and quality of the biolith.

Where do I pour fuel and how do I light it?

Bio-alcohol is poured directly into the burner, but up to a maximum of 2/3 of the volume of the burner. Bio-hatching do not pour into the burner during burning in any way ! If you want to refuel and light again after burning, wait at least 10-15 minutes for the burner to cool down. You ignite the fuel by loading the ignited lighter to the bio-alcohol level... 

Can I get burned?       

Bio fireplaces are basically open fireplaces with real fire in most cases, which is why there is a certain risk of burns.

If you put your hand in the fire, within five seconds (this figure is very individual) there is no risk of burns, not even redness of the skin. When burning organic ethanol, sparks that could harm you or cause fire do not fly away either.   

Fuel odour

Bio alcohol is an alcohol product that must be denatured due to excise duty (devalued so that it is not drinkable). During burning, you hardly smell the smell of high-quality certified fuel at all.

Dyed and dimensional modifications of Biofireplaces

Yes, we can -- we can customize some of the Biofireplaces from our range as needed, but we need to expect a longer delivery time and a price increased by more production costs. The price for the adjustment is calculated individually.

INCORPORATION OF BIO FIREPLACES

Biofireplace on plasterboard wall?

Some bio-feeds (mostly lower-weight hanging bio-feeds) have a console in the standard package, thanks to which you can hang the biocry even on this type of wall. The console pulls the bio-blood out of the wall, causing air circulation between the bio-feed and the wall. The bio fireplace with a higher weight needs to be insulated with insulating plates (e.g. Silca, Superizole, Promat 950, Grenaisol ...) and, if possible, we recommend anchoring the insulation together with biocry with a plasterboard construction for greater stability. Bio-feeds heavier than 15 kg without the use of floor-anchored brackets are not recommended to be mounted on a plasterboard wall.

Can a wall-mounted wall-mounted biofireplace be built in?

Yes, you can also build some hanging bio-parts from our offer, but we recommend using high-quality refractory materials for the building. Insulation (e.g. Silca, Superizole, Promat 950, Grenaisol ...) must be inserted between the building material, wall and biocrebe so that the temperature from the biocry body does not spread to the walls of the building and the supporting wall.

Can I put an Bio fireplace under the TV?

After lighting the fireplace, the flames burn to a stable height within 10 minutes, and the structure of the fireplace begins to heat up. At least the heat will get to the sides, only the burner will heat up from below, but 90% of all heat will flow up the wall. At this time, the hot air will begin to heat everything that is attached to the wall, in the case of television irreversible damage may occur.

The safe distance from the bio-fireplace is 1m in all directions. We do not recommend placing the TV above the burning site. If there is no other option, we recommend making additional insulation or shelter – a rail above the fireplace.

It always depends on the specific type of fireplace and especially the size of the burner in it, but in most cases it is necessary to observe the 1-2 meters safe distance between the fireplace and the TV. For wall-mounted organic fireplaces, where the burner content is 0.75l, the manufacturer recommends one meter. In addition, these fireplaces have a construction on all sides. For fireplaces with a capacity of more than 1 litre, a safe distance shall be considered to be between 1,5m and 2m.

Can I place fireplaces/burners in wood?

If there is really no possibility to incorporate a fireplace or burner into non-flammable materials that are simpler and more practical to install, under strict safety conditions certain models can also be built into wood.

Some burners listed on our website are already directly suitable for incorporation into wooden boards. For some other types, it is possible to purchase insulating boxes, thanks to which it is possible to insert a burner into given types of wooden surfaces.

Overall, however, it is necessary to keep in mind all the surrounding influences and not to place burners near curtains, paintings and other flammable objects.

If we would like to place a built-in fireplace, for example, in a wooden wall, it is always better to visit our Showroom in person or consult with an expert who provides you with reconstruction.

The fireplace must be carefully paneled on all sides with insulating plates. Here it also depends on the size of the burner and the height of the fireplace, but it is always true that the heat rising upwards will slowly destroy and de-de-ed the wood.

Therefore, if you want to build a bio-fireplace into the furniture wall, additional insulation must be created for lining the bio-fireplace insert with e.g. shamot plates.

If a new plasterboard structure is made, fire-fighting plasterboard (red) is used at the fireplace installation site.
