Charnwood – Skye 7 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 Skye 7 is a larger version of the Skye 5 and it features a ‘retro design aesthetic’ with landscape proportions and a soft modern edge. The window is large giving you a full view of the fire and it has an inverted flue collar for a seamless flue connection. It is the cleanest, wood-burning fireplace in the current Charnwood range, with a new, state-of-the-art, efficient combustion system. Its innovative burn technology ensures efficiencies of up to 86%, which exceed the future European ‘SIA Eco-Design 2022’ regulations. It is also Defra exempt to allow for wood to be burnt cleanly in smoke-controlled areas. The Skye 7 is easy to operate, and it is an environmentally friendly fireplace option for heating your home.
The Skye 7 comes with Cleanburn Air Wash Technology and a ‘push-in and pull-out’ Quattro Flow Air Management System, which is controlled using a single lever to manage the burning rate of the fire. This ensures an exceptionally clean burn, with low smoke emissions and greater efficiency. It has a Multi-Fuel Converter Grate with a patented ‘riddle mechanism’, where a stainless steel ‘ash pan riddle-mechanism’ tool is used on the side of the stove to control a series of cast iron grate bars within the combustion chamber. The bars can be set ‘closed’ in a flatbed position for burning wood or be set ‘open’ for burning anthracite. The grate is controlled externally, so this can be done with the door closed, while the fireplace is loaded and under fire. The combustion chamber comfortably loads 35cm logs.
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). It comes with a pre-fitted, external air intake option to maximise heat retention in your room and maintain a good ‘draw’. Each unit in the Skye range features built in convection panels and rear heat shields which adds some protection for surrounding household materials in your home (such as timber and glass) without reducing the heat output of the fireplace. This makes the Skye 7 ideal for installation in areas with large, glass expanses, and timber framed or clad homes. The door comes with a ‘warm-to the touch’ handle and Schott Robax Glass.
The Skye 7 can be pre-ordered with an ‘optional extra’ flue boiler and a vertical rear flue adapter.
The Skye 7 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.
