Saltfire ST1 Vision

A great looking log burner, with simple lines and discrete vents.
The Stovefitters website is extremely useful, packed with all the information you need to understand what's required, especially for me preparing the fireplace prior to the installation.
It's our first log burner and we are very happy with the quality and performance, and it really does look great.
You can sweep through the log burner, even though the specification says you can't. There is a removeable plate in the inside at the top that can be removed.
Delivery was as requested, and the driver was very helpful when dropping off, as our house is in a bit of a tricky place to navigate to.
We would recommend the log burner and stovefitters warehouse.

Julian's Thoughts

One of the first brands of stoves I sold, way back in 2013 in my small shop "The Wood Stove Hut". I have met the owners (Dorset based) many times and find them to extremely knowledgeable and professional. You cannot go wrong with Ekol, or their other brand, Saltfire.

Description

About the Saltfire ST1 Vision

A steel stove with a contemporary look that is excellent value for money.

"This is a really nice stove and the first we have purchased in about 15 years. We had a cast iron Dovre 250 and the Saltfire is steel and thus much lighter. Installation is easy to an existing flue - just slots in and then you add fire cement or resin. No need for a collar. Stovefitter's Warehouse were very helpful with this purchase when I contacted them to ask about sweeping through - the online manuals from Saltfire said that you could not, but you can (which is a relief as we did not want to put a hatch in the flue). The fire performs very well, the ash almost burns to nothing. We have not needed to empty it of ash since we had it. Lights easily and gets nice and hot. A stove thermometer puts it in the correct operating range. The glass stays reasonably clean and you get a lovely view of the flames. My only negative is that the door handle is awkward to close - we turn it the wrong way frequently, but maybe that is because the Dovre was very easy. For the cost of this, you cannot go wrong and its Defra approved." Review by A Wilcox

Inside the Stove

Specifications

Output & Fuel

Wood-only (can only burn wood)
Nominal 5kW. Max. 5kW

This stove will run happily at 2kW - 5kW depending on fuel load. Note that running the stove at a higher fuel level than that specified in the manufacturer's manual may cause degradation of stove innards (firebricks, baffle etc.) although these are replaceable (and repairable with beige fire cement).

What size stove do I need?


Eco Credentials

This stove meets and exceeds the new 2022 Ecodesign regulations

This stove is approved by DEFRA to burn wood in a Smoke Control Area


Efficiency

83.09% (as a rough guide 83.09% of heat goes to the room with 18% going up the chimney).

Don't overthink efficiency. 75%-85% is fine and90%+ efficiency may not work so well on shorter or difficult chimneys.


External Air

No, this stove cannot be fitted with an external air kit (draws air from outside via pipe direct to stove). Usually this option is not relevant unless a room air-vent is required and the property is airtight (by design or choice).

Air vent advice here


Body & Door

Steel stove (5-year body guarantee) with steel door

What to buy steel or cast-iron? Do not overthink. Steel heats fast. Cast-iron takes a little longer but retains heat longer as fire dies.


Hearth

Hearth thickness: minimum 12mm non-combustible material (can include floor thickness).

If in a fireplace recess, a full 125mm thickness constructional hearth is required. This will usually be in place as part of the recess design.

To non-combustibles there are no hard rules but, around the stove, a 50mm minimum air gap is recommended to brick/stone. This to be increased to 100mm for rendered or boarded surfaces.

Delivery Promise

We offer 14 days from delivery to report any courier damage to your stove. If a stove is damaged by the courier we will replace or refund as desired.

Guarantee

Manufacturer's Guarantee

The manufacturer offers a 5 year body guarantee

Glass

Why do we sell glass insurance (pre-ticked box close to ADD TO CART button)? Because glass is classed, in the stoves industry, as a consumable item and not covered under ANY guarantee by any manufacture for any reason whatsoever. If it breaks or cracks on day one or day twenty it is not covered. If the inside of the glass goes cloudy or gets any kind of surface coating or etching then it is not covered (it will be to do with what you are burning according to manufacturers and glass makers). Glass usually costs £30-£60 plus postage but can be more on higher end models.

Performance

Defra-approved or/and Ecodesign stoves are designed and thoroughly tested before being allowed onto the market and every stove sold is identical. In the rare event a stove does not perform as well as expected it is always down to the installation, the chimney or circumstances unique to the property (pressure imbalances caused by local conditions, down drafts etc.). Here at Stovefitter's we have taken stoves back on a number of occasions for testing on our chimney and in every situation the stoves performed as expected (we may of course find a faulty stove one day but never as yet). We may, at our discretion, take a stove back once it has been used and in this situation a 50% refund would be provided (stove would be sold as second hand). We would, however, offer a 33% refund on a replacement stove.

£ PRICE MATCH £

We will happily strive to match any price you may have from any other supplier as long as the other supplier has it in stock.
Offered an "ex-display" or "shop soiled"? We will strive to offer you a new stove for the same price.

Already have a chimney? You need 1. Stove 2. Liner 3. Fitting Pack 4. Chimney closure plate (Hardiebacker board from Builder's merchants or galvanised sheet).That's it!
No chimney? Check out our shed kits or let us design your clip-together chimney design - easy peasy.
