About the Ekol Crystal 5

A cast-iron stove with a traditional look that is excellent value for money.

The Ekol Crystal 5 is Defra-approved and Ecodesign ready.

Designed and developed in Dorset by Saltfire.

Three air-controls (primary, secondary and tertiary) so you are in control of your flame pattern and whatever the performance of your chimney you can be the boss.

A fairly small firebox so lends itself to the typically small British lounge size.

Ekol Crystal Tech

Ekol were one of the very first companies to concentrate on clean-burn technology.

Julian's thoughts

Ekol were 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.

Air vent advice here

Body and door

Cast-iron stove (5-year body guarantee) with cast-iron 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

The Ekol Crystal 5 stove can, if sited outside of a fireplace recess, be sited on a 12mm thick hearth.

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.

Air gaps

Distance to combustibles SIDE: 800mm
Distance to combustibles REAR: 820mm

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. Prior to purchasing any stove download the installation manual to check that manufacturers do not have any additional requirements.
