Charnwood is the ‘Ferrari brand’ of closed combustion fireplaces. With over 50 years of experience, Charnwood stoves offer the best that the UK and Europe have to offer. Their fireplaces are manufactured in the UK, and Charnwood has built a unique reputation for top quality and innovation.
Charnwood fireplaces are engineered with the latest technology to the best quality standards. All models come with the patented ‘Quattro flow air-management system’ for extra efficiency and a clean burn. The Quattro system produces more heat with less wood, and the fireplace is controlled by a single lever. All models are environmentally friendly, with exceptionally low smoke emissions. The ‘riddle’ mechanism burns a mix of solid fuels, such as wood, anthracite or coal, and, as with most European fireplaces, there is an optional external air intake.
The doors are cast iron, and 5 mm plate steel is used for the fireboxes. Charnwood boiler plate steel heats up quicker than cast iron, which retains heat longer, and Charnwood uses a mixture to get the best of both worlds. All models come with a multi-functional tool and warm-to-the touch handles. Favourites in this brand are the Cove 1, 2 and 3 (installed in our showroom) and the double door Island Series. Their latest model is the Charnwood Arc, a beauty in itself.
Charnwood fireplaces come standard in black and are available in seven additional special order colours. Coloured models are pre-ordered individually at an additional cost. The standard stainless steel flue kit can be sprayed the same colour as your fireplace, also at an additional charge. All special orders take up to eight weeks and require a 50% deposit, with no refunds. Because we love Charnwood so much, GC Fires clients save on their installation cost if they buy their Charnwood stoves, full flue kit and book their installation through us. The installation cost varies depending on the specifics of your quote. Charnwood offers a ten-year limited guarantee on their fireplaces.
