EcoSmart is an Australian company that has come up with an environmentally friendly open fireplace. The fireplaces are flue less and do not require any installation or connection to a fuel supply, making them ideal for just about any architectural environment.
The fireplaces are fuelled by denatured ethanol which is a renewable fuel source that burns clean and is virtually maintenance free. In Australia denatured ethanol is known simply as methylated spirits. The methylated spirits is housed in a sealed container within the fireplace which eco smart claims can provide up to 7 hours of heating on maximum and 20 hours heating on minimum
Ecosmart has a large range of fireplaces ranging from traditional models through the modern installations such as the Element model shown above.
