The ST3 is WOOD ONLY and is a larger version of the 5kw Saltfire Vision. 3-year guarantee.
Talked through my choice of stove with Stove Fitters Warehouse and they were very helpful and advised on the best arrangement of chimney pieces for the yurt I was fitting it into. Everything arrived on time and I fitted it all without any issues. It's now been lit a few times and is working perfectly. All in all, I'm very pleased.
I ordered the Saltfire ST3 as my wife liked the look, I liked the heat output, and it seemed fair value for money. We bought from Stovefitters primarily because of the comprehensive self-installation website that Julian created which gave me confidence to do the installation myself.
One minor issue with delivery, the flue liner and bits arrived but after a week, no sign of the stove itself. Phoned stovefitters and apparently it was at the local depot but no-one had contacted us. They sorted it out and stove arrived next day.
Installation went fairly smoothly apart from an obstruction in the existing concrete liner, and I'm now waiting for the plasterer before I can finish the final fit. Stove looks good but did arrive with one broken fire brick. Replacement was quickly sent, that despite excellent packaging also arrived broken, Currently awaiting 2nd replacement.
Throughout the service from stovefitters has been excellent
From first enquiry to installation troubleshooting Justin has been a pleasure to deal with and very, very helpful.
We opted for a Saltfire ST3 with Duraflue liner and fitting pack after consultation with Justin. This stove met our budget and fireplace needs and we have not been disappointed as the stove looks great and is far sturdier than expected at this price.
Everything arrived promptly and intact (though communication from the couriers could have been a bit better) and more importantly fitted together! We encountered some issues with decommissioning the old gas fire and we're thankful for Justin's guidance. Now all we need is some proper cold weather to test it out.
Self installed a saltfire st3 wodd burning stove with duraflue chimney liner and twinwall stainless flue. My chimney stack was reduced below roofline in the attic and Aaron supplied everything i needed to complete the job. It is a
fantastic stove eith a large firebox and big viewing glass to watch the beautiful flames dance around. The paint curing took approx two good burns to remove the smell of paint fumes(luke a plastic smell) and just a note to anyone getting a st3 the fumes will set off your smoke alarm so when setting for your first big burn open the windows to allow plenty of ventilation and let the fumes and smell away.The heat output from the st3 is fantastic it heats the entire house and the chimney breast is warm all night after a good burn. I have been burning a mixture of seasoned birch,beech,ash and oak with some kiln dried ash and birch. The kiln dried wood is so easy to light one firelighter to get you started and its away immediately. Just to give you an example we live in Glasgow and this week 06/11/16 we had s few nights of -2 with sharp frosts and even snowfall on the 8th, the only time we have used the gss heating is first thing in the morning until we fire up the saltfire st3. Once it gets going i opeb the living room door and it warms the whole house no problem. I think the savings on gas will more than pay for the stove and flue within one winter. I knew the stove would warm the living room and downstairs but i have to say its better than i thought it would be.
Just a few tips to anyone getting an st3.
1. Be careful when using the free silver fire mit which comes with the stove, when i was curing the paint in my first big burn i touched the door with the mit and it left a silver mark on the door right below the handle. It is easily done so be careful.
2. Dont be tempted to tighten the screws which hold the glass in place they are set in factory and if you over tighten them your glass will crack once the temperature in firebox build...
Well, it's not a top of the range stove. Like the fact that it's got levelling screws, not too keen on the side firebricks being secured by a threaded bar through the middle, and the grate bar looks a bit thin. Also the throat plate can't be removed, meaning that an access door has to be fitted in the flue.
For the price it's fine, and looks good. We'll see how it performs next winter!
Good service from Stovefitter's Warehouse, quick delivery and prompt responses to messages
great people great advice great products
stove is working so well
Excellent service, answered the queries I had throughly. The stove itself was very easy to install and looks great.
We are very pleased with our Saltfire ST3 as it is a focal point in the room & makes a large room very cosy. It is nice & low which suits our needs & looks very classy. Great service from Stove Fitters Warehouse. Thanks
Service and help in ordering was excellent. The fire is perfect for our room but by our own fault we never realised that it was wood only ( watched the video for a different ST !). Stove, pipes and Duraflue etc. arrived on scheduled day, unfortunately we received one 45 ° and one 30° bend instead of two 45s , the Dura flue adapter and the 10" Jubilee clip were missing. Shippers fault but Stovefitters Warehouse immediately sent out the correct parts which arrived within two days which was excellent service.
Being a novice I asked a few questions about the installation and they were well and patiently answered.
The stove we are very happy with. Having a stove that is longer than it is high suits the room much better than the traditional shape ( this was my first criteria, shape ). It is very light for manoeuvrability. It was suitable to accept a 5" flue.
The 904 Silvercore flue being only 5" made the installation really easy just by spinning it round as it came to the bends in the chimney.
Delighted with how this stove looks. Large viewing glass of fire with a modern look at a great price. Purchased with a fitting pack which had everything I needed for a trouble free installation. Great service from Stove fitters warehouse, cheers.
Just installed my saltfire ST3 + 904 Duraflue Liner. Very pleased with both, quality seems excellent. Stovefitters have been prompt with delivery and good to deal with. Thanks
dealing with them was quick and straightforward,I would highly recommend
