Saltfire ST2 and twin wall chimney design

ORDER #15183 Ordered my stove and a twin wall chimney design from the stove fitters warehouse. The information on the website is really helpful as is the design process. Ray was really helpful and responded to my questions on the design and regulations quickly. Really pleased with the stove (which looks great and feels well made) and the twin wall which has been relatively straightforward to install myself with the advice on the website.

Was kept informed on delivery of all elements and could even choose the day it arrived

Neat little stove

This stove has transformed our front room.
It’s an Edwardian Semi and it’s always been cold in that room. Now we fire up the stove and sit there in our pants with the door open. It’s blooming lovely. For an average size front room don’t go any bigger than this or you’ll be scaring pedestrians with your sweaty nudity.
As mentioned in the description the ash pan is a bit small but no big deal, very easy to empty out and it burns so efficiently there’s not much ash left.

DEFRA Approved

This stove can burn wood in a Smoke Control Area (most towns and cities are Smoke Control Areas).

Julian's Thoughts

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.

About the Saltfire ST2


Budget stove that has often topped our best-sellers list.

"We were so impressed with our first St2 and twin wall flue fitted some 18 months ago that our choice when refurbishing our lounge was easy, so number two Saltfire ST2 complete with 5" twin walled flue was duly purchased from the Stovefitters Warehouse and fitted just in time for Christmas. The stoves clean lines and contemporary style make a real feature, efficient and economical, providing ample heat output and a real fire. The fixing kit, and adapters are high quality and the fitting instructions on the web site are amazing, so easy to follow.

I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this stove and liner combination and the service provided by Stovefitters warehouse." Martin Walker


Output & Fuel

Wood-only (can only burn wood)
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


81.3% (as a rough guide 81.3% of heat goes to the room with 18.7% 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).

Air vent advice here

Body & Door

Steel stove (3-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 thickness: minimum 12mm non-combustible material (can include floor thickness).

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.

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.


Manufacturer's Guarantee

The manufacturer offers a 3 year body guarantee


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.


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.


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.
