Northern Flame Snug With Stand



This fireplace is compliant with the Eco-Design 2022 requirements for burning both wood and smokeless fuel. The Eco-Design scheme aims to reduce harmful emissions and it is mandatory in Europe for all stoves. Eco-Design stoves can offer a 90% reduction in particulates released when compared to an open fire, and an 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 sustainable, greener future!



This is 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 U.K. Eco-Design regulation standards. There are 5 accreditation levels, with 5 being the best improvement on Eco-Design.

  • ClearSkies 2 – Eco-design compliant.
  • ClearSkies 3 – Eco-Design compliant and DEFRA Exempt.
  • ClearSkies 4 – 15% Improvement on Eco-Design and DEFRA Exempt.
  • ClearSkies 5 – At least a 30% improvement on the minimum Eco-Design 2022 criteria. The highest accreditation level, and DEFRA Exempt.



A Defra approved stove is an industry term for a SE (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 Ecosy+ Snug 10kW is one of the most up to date and cleanest burning multi-fuel stoves sold in the U.K. Its modern design is well suited to most interiors. The large window and brushed steel handle and leavers also add to its good looks. Its output range is between 4.7-10.2kW.

It features a 30mm thick cast iron door, a thick steel body and a unique, removable, steel baffle plate design. The vermiculite lined combustion chamber comes with a removable, galvanised ash pan (with all 4 corners folded) and comfortably loads 30cm logs. Adjustable bolts on the stand aid with levelling on uneven surfaces and there is an option to connect to a direct air feed through an external air intake. Included are an instruction manual; a glove for adjusting the air inlets and for opening the door, 2 cast iron grates - 1 flat wood grate and 1 multifuel grate, and a tool for removing the ash pan. The combustion chamber’s dimensions are 38cm (W) x 30cm (H) x 25.5cm (D). The large window’s dimensions are 30.5cm x 33.5cm.

The Snug burns both wood and smokeless coal. For wood, which prefers a flat bed with air flowing over the top, the air controls can completely cut off the primary air under the fire with the left lever, whilst leaving the secondary / tertiary air open with the right lever. To burn smokeless coal, this grate slips out and the permeable, coal grate slips in. The airholes in the coal grate allow the ash to fall through and the air controls allow the primary air to be fully open letting air rush under the fire whilst the secondary / tertiary air is almost fully cut off independently.

The Snug is effectively ‘a stove within a stove’, where the air drawn in from the rear is fed between two layers of steel. The air is then dispersed over the fire from a series of holes high inside the rear of the chamber. This re-introduced Tertiary air re-burns the initial smoke and pollutants created by the fire. The remaining air speeds up as it rises over the fire and is released like a curtain of heat that burns the glass clean (Air Wash technology).

The Snug is a high-end product with a SIA 2022 Eco-Design, clearSkies Level 5 accreditation, & DEFRA certification. It is manufactured according to European design in China for the U.K. market. It is CE and British standard approved by KIWA Gastec in Cheltenham, UK and comes with a 5-year limited warranty.
