AS MORE THAN 50% of all chimney inserts in Denmark come from the Danish manufacturer Meteor and Schiedel ISOKERN is the leading Danish manufacturer of block stone chimney systems, it was obvious for the two companies to combine their knowledge and experience to create a masterpiece solution: the PerfectFire Nordic was born.
Pumice is a volcanic material that can withstand very high temperatures and due to its excellent insulating characteristics it does not get warm on the outer surface. Next to that the material is of course non-combustable. This means that PerfectFire Nordic can be placed directly next to flammable materials such as furniture or hanging pictures.
Today, the construction of modern houses is setting high requirements in terms of density, which is a challenge for the air supply to fireplaces. This has been brilliantly solved byMeteor and Schiedel ISOKERN by having two channels in the same chimney block. One is a smoke duct, and the other is an air duct that supplies the fireplace with fresh air and ensures perfect combustion, maintaining the classic slim square shape of the chimney.
One of the first PerfectFire Nordic solutions in the market, was ordered by carpenter, Karsten Birk, for a new house, and he explains: “The PerfectFire Nordic seemed like the obvious choice. I could have built this fireplace by myself, but the stove dealer offered me a complete solution including building the frame and chimney, installing the insert and rendering. This way I can concentrate on the work, that is prosperous for my business, and my end-customer gets a beautiful fireplace built by specialists.“
// a Meteor insert
// a Schiedel ISOKERN frame made of pumice stone modules
// a Schiedel ISOKERN chimney made of pumice blocks
// all other relevant items (glue and plaster for the frame and chimney, wall grates, flue pipe, ventilation pipe) required to build the complete solution
PerfectFire Nordic allows you to build a fireplace directly into a wall if you want to save floor space, or create a discreetly integrated solution with elegant lines. Or PerfectFire Nordic can stand freely in the room and act as an expressive visual element. No matter what solution is choosen, it is very easy to build and to implement in a house.
The insert itself comes with convection, which distributes the heat optimally in the room. PerfectFire Nordic is available in three versions and for all three versions the insert can be placed at different heights. It is also possible to arrange a wood storage room under the fireplace, yet saving even more floor space.
PerfectFire Nordic is the ideal solution, whether it involves integrating a fireplace in a new building, a refurbishment, or a renovation of an existing house. Sales manager at the manufacturer of Meteor inserts, Kim Kristensen, states:
Finally, it is also an option to offer a system similar to the PerfectFire Nordic system to other manufacturers of inserts. The pumice frame would then be customized to the specific insert(s) selected by the manufacturer. According to Phil Lowe, Key Account Manager at Schiedel UK: “this solution has been very well received by manufacturers of cassettes in the United Kingdom. The reasons for this is that it enables them to: differentiate their products, offer a complete solution and thereby allow the stove dealers to enter the new build market giving the stove retailers opportunity in new markets they may not currently operate in”.
