DOVRE. FIRE WITH CHARACTER.
Dovre fireplaces and stoves have their origins in the harsh winters of the far north. They have been proving their exceptional quality day after day for more than 80 years. Over the past years, Dovre products have gained an iron-clad reputation for innovative heating technology in our part of the world as well. Hundreds of thousands of people are already enjoying the cosy warmth and comfort of a Dovre in their living room. Dovre stoves and fireplaces are made of the perfect heat conductor: high quality cast iron.
Cast iron the way that only Dovre makes it: our own foundry goes for quality!
Since Dovre built a state-of-the-art foundry in Belgium in the early 1980s, Dovre has also gained a strong position in the supply market: the high degree of automation of the foundry for castings with a low wall thickness and up to a weight of approximately 30 kg. Our castings are characterised not only by their stability of shape and high dimensional accuracy, but also by the aesthetics of their surface structure, which, thanks to their ultra-fine form and installation, guarantees a perfect finish. The Dovre foundry has specialised in the production of large series, which is why it is the ideal partner for high-quality cast iron. In addition, Dovre has extensive processing and assembly facilities at its disposal, as well as a highly equipped sheet metal working installation and an ultramodern enamelling installation.
ENERGY FROM WOOD: THE NATURAL CHOICE!
Do you want to limit the use of fossil energy sources (fuel oil, gas, coal) because they are polluting and expensive?
Then choose wood!
Wood burning is extremely necessary for the feasi- bility of an European alternative energy policy! Wood heating is economical, environmentally friend- ly, renewable and gives a cozy warmth. Moreover, the price of this type of heating remains very stable whi- le contributing to the development of the local economy.
Those who heat with wood pay less for their energy. Depen- ding on the fuel type (logs, pressed logs, wood chips or pel- lets), wood heating costs between 2.5 and 5.5 cents per kWh.
If used correctly, wood heating makes it possible to drastically re- duce our ecological impact. After all, the CO2 that was absorbed by the tree before it was felled compensates for the CO2 emissions during combustion. In addition, a new plant is immediately planted to replace the cut down tree. In that case, we are talking about a neutral carbon balance. Wood heating is thus an integral part of a natural cycle that greatly reduces our impact on global warming.
Who has never dreamed of a cosy evening by the fireplace? The play of colours of the flames, the crackling of the logs, the pleasant fragrance is simply magical. That fantastic fee- ling of intense well-being and tranquillity can only be obtain- ed with wood. What’s more delightful than the heat radiation that makes your cheeks blush and gives you a good mood?
As from January 2018 all manufacturers will be obligated to provide an ecolabel and technical specifications with each appliance. This ecolabel will display the energy efficiency. You can find all the technical specifications per appliance at the end of this catalogue. On the label itself you’ll find a score that indicates the efficiency. A+ means that the energy efficience is between 107 and 130 for example.
5 + 5 = 10 YEAR GUARANTEE
Dovre strives to deliver top quality. By combining workmanship, the use of high quality materials and parts and rigorous quality control, Dovre can offer a 5 year guarantee on the cast iron*. The guarantee for cast iron is extended by another 5 years if you submit the online guarantee form on our website within three months after purchase. (*) except for components which come in direct contact with the flames, such as glass, grates, inner panels, etc.
The solid fuels you can choose from are wood, coal and lignite briquettes.
Wood and coal burn in totally different ways.
Relies on heat from embers. When buying coal you need to check the ash content.
This must not be higher than 5%.
Burns away completely and produces more combustion heat, which provides a more pleasing effect. Good firewood must be completely dry. The moisture level must not be higher than 15%, or the wood will burn at too low a temperature, causing a significant drop in efficiency and possibly releasing noxious gases into the environment. Also, if the temperature is too low, soot can form in the flue.
Are simple to use, burn slowly and keep the stove hot for a long time.
A gas stove is very user-friendly: you can easily turn it on and off, or program it. The flame does not look the same as a wood fire. You can choose between open or closed combustion. With closed combustion fresh air is supplied via a double-skinned flue.
AIRWASH: FOR A GLASS THAT STAYS CLEAN FOR A LONGER TIME
Dovre’s Airwash system uses a spoiler to draw the air flow for secondary combustion across the glass. That keeps unburned fumes and condensation away from the glass, keeping the glass clean longer.
SECONDARY COMBUSTION TECHNOLOGY
FOR HIGH EFFICIENCY AND A CLEANER ENVIRONMENT
The latest generation of Dovre stoves has a unique dual combustion system. Secondary air is taken into the stove from the rear. This is first heated and then piped into the combustion chamber. This causes secondary combustion which consumes the remaining combustible flue gas. Result: improved heat production and cleaner and environmentally friendly combustion.
The higher the efficiency, the more heat you get and the less fuel you need. The efficiency of Dovre woodburning stoves and fireplaces is optimised using secondary combustion, where a separate air inlet allows combustion gas to burn. That is good for efficiency, safety and the environment. It also results in more complete combustion resulting in much less ash being left behind.
Choose your appliance to suit the room you want to heat. You will get the best results if your appliance constantly burns at its nominal power. If your appliance is too large, it will often operate at a combustion level that is too low. The result will be incomplete combustion, which is not good for your chimney (increased risk of chimney fire because of soot deposits), nor for the environment (unburned flue gases in the atmosphere).
DIRECT FRESH AIR SUPPLY: “OUTSIDE AIR”
Did you know that your stove or fireplace take air straight from outside? That means that no oxygen or heated air is lost from the room. The best choice for houses with a ventilation system or well insulated low energy homes.
AIR FROM OUTSIDE OR FROM ANOTHER ROOM?
You can choose where the fresh air is taken from: straight from outside, but also from an adjacent room, cellar or storage space.
CLEAN, SAFE COMBUSTION
This outside air supply means that the air needed is constantly taken in from outside and the delicate balance of aeration and ventilation is undisturbed. After being heated, the outside air is going straight into the combustion chamber, resulting in clean, safe combustion.
HEALTHY INSIDE AIR AND WONDERFUL HEAT!
An outside air supply means that clean and healthy internal air is guaranteed while you enjoy the blissful warmth!
DOVRE PRODUCTS WITH OUTSIDE AIR SUPPLY
Much of our range is already supplied with a connection to feed air from outside (diameter 100 mm). These products are listed at the back of this catalogue under “technical specifications”.
