Fire Fuel TypesThe term fuel bed refers to the part of the fire the flames appear through to give the effect of a realistic fire. You will find a choice of coals, pebbles or driftwood and skimmers fuel bed when looking at Baxi, Valor and Wondefire product range.
Pebble Bed Fires - A pebble bed can be found on the majority of our modern products. Pebble bed Fires are available on both full depth and slimline gas fires and come in a bright, white colour that will suit a number of interior decors.
Coal bed Fires - Coal beds are often used on more traditional products. The coal beds used on our products have been designed to give a very realistic coal fuel bed effect, with each original coal having been designed by hand.
Driftwood Fires and Skimmers Fires - Driftwood and Skimmers fuels bed are used on more contemporary products. This Fuel bed is unique to Wonderfire Fires.
Different depths of a fuel bed in Fires?Deep fuel beds (sometimes referred to Class 1) - These are full depth fuel beds found on fires for homes with brick built chimneys or prefabricated flues.
Slimline fuel beds (Sometimes referred to Class 2) - These are shallow fuel beds that are found on slimline multiflue fires, they are usually at least 10cm/ aprox 4 inches shallower than the deep fuel beds. This type of fuel bed is suitable for all chimney/flue types.
The Different Heat Types of FiresThere are two types of heat given off by a fire. Radiant Heat Fires - All fires give off radiant heat. Radiant heat is like being warmed by the sun. The heat moves (radiates) outward from the fire into the room, the closer you get to the fire the warmer you feel.
Convected Heat Fires - Convected heat occurs when a fire actively draws in cold air from the room, passes it through a heat exchanger to warm it up and sends it back out into the room as warm air. This feature gives a more rapid and even heat distribution throughout your room and these products are known as convectors.
Active Heat Fires - Active Heat Fires that are described as convectors give out both types of heat as stated above. These fires have been fitted with an added feature to achieve a higher heat output and we call this feature Active Heat.
