The stoves in this collection are under 35cm in width.

We recommend that, as long as the stove's installation manual does not say otherwise*) the minimum air gap at each side of the stove is as follows:

    • 10cm if the fireplace recess is lined with a fireproof board or render (less likelihood of any board or render cracking with heat)
    • 5cm if the fireplace recess is unlined and made of brick or stone

*Once you have decided on a stove you can usually download the installation manual online.

The above are minimums. The bigger the air gap the more easily heat can make its way into the room.
