Heatmaster units are a purpose built steel open fire place.
Being purpose built, they are made ready for any new home or renovation.
No need for expensive brick work, these units are designed to fit into a timber frames wall : being all insulated, they not only do not need any expensive fire proofing
The steel construction heats up extremely fast, but its the convection heating that makes all the difference here.
The best way to explain this, is the Heatmaster is a box – within a box.. there is a convention chamber where the heat can build up, and naturally vent into the room through the louvers above the opening of the fireplace.
There is no fan in these units, but you would actually think there was with the amount of air flow you naturally get from this convection chamber
Designed to work
A traditional fireplace you are relaying on the chimney to be built correctly to ensure the draft for the fireplace not to smoke, also in times a traditional brick chimney is not in use, they allow flies and cold drafts to continue to come into the house.
Heatmaster fires are deigned to work on a flue system, just like a wood heater. Using the right size flue, and installed at the right height, you are ensured your Heatmaster will not smoke your home out.
And in time the HM is not in use, there is a flue damper in the flue to allow you to shut the flue completely, no more flies or drafts when not in use.
As for lighting, having an old fashion grate and ashtray makes lighting the fire so easy to light, and the ashtray is so easy to keep your fireplace clean, no need to shovel out the fire, just slide out the ash tray to take outside for cleaning.
The optional screen ( we highly recommend to purchase ) is easy to put on, even when the fire is roaring.
Its locks in to ensure you get 100% total coverage of the opening, absolutely no sparks can fly out when the screen is on.
The way the screen locks in is solid, so if a log did roll forward with the screen on, the screen will stop it.
