Superb stove

I purchased this particular stove as its a good brand, doesn't need additional ventilation (although will still kick out 7kw!) and the glass screen is massive. My TV is now redundant.

Parkray Aspect 4

Great stove, ordered from stove fitters warehouse with the multi fuel kit and they even price matched it too. Excellent customer service and I was kept up to date on my order and delivery. The stove itself is very good, looks amazing and modern and is so simple to use. Even if you don't get this stove I'd reccomend the website. Order ref:10215

Description

About the Parkray Aspect 5

Parkray Aspect 5

The Aspect 5 is Hunter Stoves best selling stove.

Short-Listed for the Best Heating Category - House Beautiful Awards - 2017

Parkray Aspect 5. Made in Britain would you believe? Crafted in Camelford, Cornwall (don't we all love Cornwall?). This stove has the huge viewing pane and a massive firebox and, from what I have heard, resulted in a huge growth in sales for the company. I'm not surprised - talk about pulling the rabbit out of the hat! Well done Parkray! Bet those Parkray people have all got MASSIVE tv's at home in sunny Cornwall.

BOLTED IN BAFFLE SO SOOT DOOR IN FLUE REQUIRED

Specifications

Output & Fuel

Wood only (multifuel with kit).
Nominal 4.9kW. Max. 7kW

This stove will run happily at 4kW - 7kW 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

80% (as a rough guide 8% of heat goes to the room with 20% going up the chimney).

Don't overthink efficiency. 75%-85% is fine and 90%+ 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).

See "Customers Also Bought".

Air vent advice here


Body & Door

Steel stove (10-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

Hearth thickness: minimum 125mm non-combustible material (can include floor thickness).

The Ivar 5 High and Log store versions can, if outside of a fireplace recess, be sited on a 12mm thick hearth. Note that the standard leg Ivar 5 must have a full 125mm thickness hearth in all situations.

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.

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 10 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.
