Cast iron or steel
Originally, all heating stoves, such as the Stovax Huntingdon range were made from cast iron. Today, in spite of commercial steel production expanding from the late 19th Century onwards, cast iron still remains the material of choice for many premium quality stoves. This is because of the way cast iron diffuses warmth giving maximum radiant heat over a period of time. Moreover, the iron can be cast more thickly in areas where greater strength is needed, whilst additionally allowing attractive designs to be cast into the stove panels.
However, in the 21st Century modern manufacturing technology also permits the use of heavy gauge steel for the body of the stove with cast iron or steel doors and firebox components complementing it. Accordingly, the more traditional Stovax Stockton range and the contemporary combine the advantage of both cast iron and steel, offering superb performance and value for money.

State-of-the-art Cleanburn technology
Most stoves in this brochure feature Cleanburn technology so they burn logs or solid fuels with outstanding efficiency*, resulting in more heat delivery into the room and less going up the chimney. It works by introducing pre-heated, secondary air into the firebox to burn the excess hydrocarbons in the smoke. Airwash air also helps keep the window clean, allowing you to enjoy the flames to the full.
CE Marked and HETAS Accredited
All Stovax Stoves in this brochure, with the exception of the Large Regency and High-output Boilers, are CE marked. This means they have been independently tested to exacting European standards for both heating efficiency and emissions. They have also been accredited by HETAS, the UK’s official body recognised by the government to approve solid fuel domestic heating appliances.
Woodburning and solid fuel
All Stovax stoves are designed either for multi-fuel use, which means they burn logs, smokeless fuels or peat/turf briquettes, or as woodburners only. Multi-fuel stoves have a riddling grate which allows ash to be riddled into a built-in ashpan to create the optimum conditions for efficient combustion. Woodburners have a fixed grate and no ashpan, since wood burns best on a bed of ashes.
Wood is better in environmental terms as the amount of carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere is approximately the same as that absorbed by the tree during growth. It is also a renewable resource, particularly when derived from plantations and cultivated woodland. For optimum results, we recommend logs should be seasoned for 2 years or more to achieve a moisture content below 20%*. This will not only give twice the output of freshly felled timber but help avoid a build up of tar in your flue. Furthermore, if you can obtain hardwood logs this is better still, as they will have up to twice the calorific value of softwoods for the same volume.
In rural areas, Stovax stoves have a particular advantage as they allow homeowners to burn readily available log supplies from local sources. Indeed, if you are a farmer, smallholder or landowner your fuel could even be free! Woodburning efficiency can even be achieved in the most urban environments with Stovax´s extensive range of Smoke Control Area approved stoves. Just as importantly, if you choose a Stovax stove with a boiler option, you can even provide yourself with domestic hot water or run radiators from the same fire.
Five Year Warranty
Your Stovax retailer will provide you with a Five Year Casting* Warranty for all cast iron stoves and the cast iron door of steel stoves. All Stovax stoves efficiencies quoted on this website are for seasoned wood with a moisture content of less than 20% or for approved smokeless fuels.
*Castings refers to the main carcass of cast iron stoves and the cast iron door in the case of steel stoves. Wearing consumables including baffles, log retainers and grates are not covered by this warranty.
Stovax boiler stoves for complete home heating
Four models within the Stockton range, along with a new contemporary View model, have been specifically designed to supply your domestic hot water and central heating requirements or even augment your existing heating system.
Hot water, radiators and underfloor heating: Several Stovax woodburning/multi-fuel stoves are designed to be fitted with optional boiler systems and details of these can be found on appropriate pages throughout this website. Additionally, Stovax offer a selection of High-output Boiler models that come with the boiler built in. If you choose a stove with an integral High-output Boiler, you can not only supply yourself with domestic hot water but even run your radiators all from the same appliance.
Alternatively, you can ‘link up’ a Stovax boiler stove with your conventional oil or gas fuelled central heating system. This ‘link up’ system will not only reduce reliance on your heating being provided from a single fuel source but, if burning wood, will also make your heating better for our environment through lower carbon emissions. ‘Link up’ can also connect with gas or oil, sealed heating systems, combi’s, underfloor heating, advanced electronic controls and solar panels to make even more flexible systems.
Clean Air Act compliance - Approved for Smoke Control Areas
Most town and city homes are located in Smoke Control Areas as designated by the Clean Air Act 1993. To burn logs on a stove in these locations, the model installed must have been granted exemption from the regulations by the government through DEFRA. This exemption is given only to appliances which have been independently tested to demonstrate particularly clean burning combustion. Many Stovax stoves are approved for use in Smoke Control Areas (when the appropriate smoke control kit is fitted)
