Julian's Thoughts

At the time of writing I have yet to put the Modivar through its paces. Knowing DG's design and testing processes I am sure this will perform beautifully. Testing and review coming soon...

Description

About the DG Modivar 5

Dik Geurts  Floating Plateau

Following the stunning success of the Ivar, Dik Geurts recently launched the Modivar. This contemporary design is available as a freestanding stove but also has a choice of stores and stands.

The Modivar, a wood-only stove, has an array of options: rear heat shield, external air kit and screw-in feet for when the stove is not sited on a store or plinth.

Log store

Need somewhere to store those logs? Choose the "Store" or "Plateau" version of this stove.

Specifications

Output & Fuel

Wood only
Nominal 5kW. Max. 6kW

This stove will run happily at 2kW - 6kW 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

82% (as a rough guide 82% 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

Yes, this stove can 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).

Please contact us for further advice.

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).
