Charnwood – Aire 3 Low Stand


SIA 2022 Eco-Design Ready - This fireplace meets and exceeds the Eco-Design 2022 requirements for burning both wood and smokeless fuel. The Eco-Design scheme aims to reduce harmful emissions and it will become mandatory in Europe for all stoves on the 1 January 2022. Eco-Design stoves can offer a 90% reduction in particulates released when compared to an open fire, and a 80-94% reduction when compared to an old fireplace. In South Africa it is not a requirement to have an Eco-Design Ready appliance; however, those who are concerned by the impact of their consumer choices on the environment are choosing Eco-Design 2022 Ready appliances. A fireplace for now, and for the future!

ClearSkies - An independent emissions and energy performance accreditation mark for solid fuel stoves in the U.K. It builds on Eco-Design 2022 to help lower emissions and improve air quality. This fireplace meets and exceeds Eco-Design regulation standards. There are 5 accreditation levels, with 5 being the best improvement on Eco-Design.

ClearSkies 5 – At least a 30% improvement on the minimum Eco-Design 2022 criteria. The highest accreditation level, and DEFRA Exempt.

Defra Approved Stove - A Defra approved stove is an industry term for a smoke exempt fireplace which has been approved to burn specific fuels in a smoke-controlled area that would usually not be allowed (i.e., wood). The appliance has a factory-fitted modification to the Secondary air control to prevent closure beyond a 10mm open position.

The Aire 3 is a revolutionary, new, wood-burning stove with an oversized window design that maximises your view of the fire. It’s perfect for heating small spaces such as a small cottage or flatlet; a home office or a cabin. Its minimal design comfortably fits into virtually any interior space whether it be freestanding or within a traditional fireplace hearth. It’s manufactured out of boiler plate steel and comes with a cast iron door and top, and a ‘warm-to the touch handle for safe and easy loading. The handle blends into the side of the stove when the door is closed. The Aire 3 has all the features of both the Aire 5 and Aire 7 and it’s also reasonably priced when compared to the Premium Charnwood Arc and Island.  It’s an excellent value for money stove. The Aire 3 embodies what matters most to Charnwood - clean, efficient, easy to operate, beautiful in any room and responsible to the environment. The Aire 3 steers users towards sustainable and carbon neutral fuel sources such as responsibly sourced wood.

The Aire 3 features Cleanburn Air Wash technology with a crystal-clear burn. It has remarkable air control with the easy to regulate ‘push-in and pull-out’ Quattro Flow Air Intake, which is an air management system using a single control to manage the burning rate of the fire. The sizable combustion chamber comfortably burns 25cm logs. There is no grate as it comes with a ‘sliding fire bed - ashpan’ for clean and easy ash removal. Logs are burnt directly on this double insulated ‘Ashpan’. The drop down throat plate enables chimney sweeping via the fireplace, and there is a pre-fitted external air intake option to maximise heat retention in your room and maintain a good ‘draw’ in your chimney. This improves the operation and heat output of your stove, especially if you are already invested in making your home heat efficient.

The Aire 3 can be pre-ordered with an ‘optional flue boiler and a vertical rear flue adapter. It comes standard in black, with a choice of 7 extra ‘special order’ colours.

It is SIA Eco-Design 2022 Ready; has a clearSkies level 5 rating and it is Defra certified. Imported from the Isle of Wight in the U.K. and comes with a 10-year limited guarantee.
