eco smart fireplaces

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.
