Hi, what are you looking for?

Hallo, waar ben je naar op zoek?

Please make your choice

Which style do you prefer?

Built-in fireplaces are fully built into the chimney and cannot be removed afterwards without major structural work. They are available with or without
a convection box and fans. Built-in fireplaces are generally fitted into newly
built chimneys. All normal maintenance work can be carried out via the door
opening. No crushing work is required.

Insert, cassette or inset fireplaces are made in a compact shape with a flat top so that they can be slided into an opening in the chimney. The frame of the appliance covers the opening. These appliances can be simply removed from the chimney later the same way without structural work. Built-in inserts are fitted with a convection box and often have fans as well. They are typically used in the replacement market and installed in existing chimneys, but can also be used in new build projects. All normal maintenance work can be carried out via the door opening. No structural work is needed for this.

Ingebouwde haarden zijn volledig ingebouwd in de schoorsteen en kunnen achteraf niet zonder breek-werken worden verwijderd. Deze toestellen zijn zowel met als zonder convectiemantel of ventilatoren verkrijgbaar.

Inbouwhaarden worden doorgaans gebruikt in nieuw te bouwen schouwmantels. Alle standaard onderhoudswerkzaamheden aan het toestel kunnen gebeuren via de deuropening. Daarvoor moeten geen preekwerken worden uitgevoerd.

Inzethaarden (ook wel Cassettes of inserts genoemd) worden dankzij hun compacte vorm en blakke bovenkant in een opening in de open haard geschoven. De kader van het toestel dekt de opening af. Op dezelfde manier kunnen deze toestellen achteraf eenvoudig zonder breekwerken weer uit de schouwmantel worden verwijderd. Inzethaarden zijn uitgerust met een convectiekast en normaal ook vaak met ventilatoren.

Ze worden typisch gebruikt in de vervangingsmarkt en in bestaande schouwmantels geplaatst, maar kunnen ook voor nieuwbouwprojecten worden aangewend. Alle standaard onderhoudswerkzaamheden aan het toestel kunnen gebeuren via de deuropening.
