Charnwood Arc 5


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 Charnwood Arc (store stand) is a steel model with dynamic, soft lines, a cast iron door and extra height. It’s the perfect fireplace for a modern or traditional setting. Convection panels reduce the rear distance to combustibles and allow for an installation into tight places.

The new, advanced combustion system with Quattro Flow Air Management ensures an exceptionally clean burn, with low smoke emissions and greater efficiency. It’s simple to use with a single air control. The Arc 5 comes with a ‘warm-touch’ handle, Schott Robax Glass, a Multifuel Converter Grate and an ash pan with a stainless steel ‘ash pan riddle-mechanism’ tool. There is an Air Wash Glass Cleaning System to keep your glass cleaner for longer and a ‘drop down throat plate’ (enabling the chimney to be swept through the stove). The combustion chamber comfortably loads 29 cm logs.

The Arc 5 comes in standard black, with a choice of 7 extra ‘special order’ colours (Almond, Gunmetal, Brown, Bronze, Pewter, Blue & Green). ‘Special order’ colours need to be pre-ordered and prices may vary.

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