Soapstone and Cast Iron – A Beautiful Pair
The Fireview wood stove is styled after the famous soapstone wood stoves made in Francestown, New Hampshire during the 1860’s. The ornamental ironwork on the Fireview wood stove reflects the classic architectural style of the mid-nineteenth century. The smooth, lustrous surface and unique grain and color of the soapstone panels forms an appealing contrast to the sculpted iron frame. Each Fireview stove is a handsome and attractive piece of furniture. Like those old, heirloom wood stoves made in the 1860’s, the aesthetic appeal is remarkable.
Radiating Heat Long After The Fire Has Died Down
The Fireview wood stove has a firebox with thick inside walls of soapstone and a firebrick-lined base. The soapstone keeps combustion temperatures high for clean-burning efficiency, and it stores heat and then radiates it long after the fire has died down. The soapstone firebox also hold coals for hours longer than a metal stove, which makes it easy to keep the fire going without resorting to paper and kindling. You’ll appreciate the bed of hot coals and the warmth that greets you if you’ve been away from your home for 10-12 hours or more.
No Other Wood Stove Will Ever Exactly Duplicate It
Each wood stove is built with skill, patience, and attention to detail by an individual craftsman. Like fine wood, each piece of soapstone has unique grain and coloration. With an eye for natural harmony, the stovemaker selects panels of stone with complementary grain and color for each stove. The marbling in the stone ensures that each stove is unique and will never have an exact replica.
Clean Burning & Powerful Heating Capabilities
The Fireview will heat efficiently, cleanly, and safely. It is sized to be a primary heat source, and will heat large areas, anywhere from 900 to 1600 square feet. It will burn for up to 12 hours on one load of wood, and produce up to 55,000 BTUs per hour. The emissions rating on the Fireview is an environmentally friendly 1.3 gm./hr. – one of the best in the woodstove industry - and the stove is also safety tested to UL Standards for safety by Omni Testing Laboratories, Inc of Beaverton, Oregon.
Crystal Clear Fire Viewing
The Fireview wood stove has a spotless front window, which makes it the perfect substitute for a fireplace and brings a warm and friendly focus to any room in your home. There’s nothing like a warm hearth and a beautiful wood fire to bring people together. The Fireview wood stove employs double glass coupled with an airwash system to keep the front window clean. A pair of decorative flame-topped andirons keep wood back from the front window and away from the air wash. Its classic beauty, reliable and efficient operation, and durable construction have made this our most popular woodstove year after year.
