About the Ekol Clarity 5

Ekol Clarity 5 green door
Ekol Clarity 5 cream door

There is something about this stove that makes it stand out in our showroom. It is quite a small 5kW stove but it has perfect proportions - it just looks right.

The Ekol Clarity 5 is a small 5kW steel stove with a cast iron door that has a neat, contemporary look.

As with all Ekol stoves the focus is on the clean burning of the fuel, this achieved by multiple, strategically placed points where the air enters the stove (unburned combustibles re-ignited by heat and oxygen rather than floating off skyward).

Ekol offers a coloured door option (we can offer this free of charge instead of the usual free gift - call 01492 535 852).

Ekol are a Dorset-based company who design all of their own stoves (rather than importing and re-branding off the shelf models).

Ekol 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.

Great first stove!

Purchased this as my first stove. Loved the great advice from stovefitters and the delivery and service was quick and efficient. Stove looks great with large viewing window and burns good and clean. Fitting was easy along with the fitting kit as recommended.

Ekol Clarity 5 With Hand Burnished Door

Great stove, good heat output and great looks... as per the description, the hand burnished door will discolour with the heat, but apart from that, all good.

Body and door

Steel 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.


This 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.

Hearth regulation advice here

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.

WHY YOU NEED OUR Exceptional guarantee (6-months even if stove used)

What if I get a lemon? What if I'm unhappy when I unwrap it? What if it does not agree with my chimney?
Chimney and stove not agreeing with each other? Although rare it really does happen and it is usually cured by swapping the stove for another. Why? Who knows? We have had a few stoves that "whistled". When we swapped the stove the problem stopped but when we put the stoves on a different chimney they do not whistle. We have had a few stoves that let smoke into the room when refuelling - swap the stove and the problem is cured. Test the stove on a different chimney and all is well.
Most retailers will not replace or refund if it is a problem with the chimney. You will have to sell your stove yourself (at a great loss as stove second-hand value is very poor) and purchase another.
If your stove's retail price is under £1500: Should you not be happy with your stove for any reason, within the first three months from purchase, we will arrange to have the stove collected from your premises (we pay first £48 delivery collection cost, covers most UK postcodes, you pay additional in rare situation cost rises above £48 for any reason). Stove installed and has been used? No worry. We will pay you up to £100 to have it removed by a Hetas registered installer.
As soon as the stove is back with us we will provide a FULL REFUND of the cost of the stove. We will even post you a pallet and straps as required (you will need to prepare it ready for our driver). This exceptional guarantee lasts for a full three months from date of delivery EVEN IF THE STOVE IS USED as long as normal wear and tear.
Between three and six months, we offer exactly the same but without the £100 stove-removal offer.
On this, you have my word.
