The Bellfires® is made up of precast modular masonry
Foundry pre-cast fireplace components insure combustion efficient design
and labor-saving time—every time. The firebox and smoke chamber, the
heart of your fireplace are constructed in minutes versus days.... From
small Victorian and Kivas, to large Colonial, Contemporary, and Castle
fireplaces—Bellfires® has the size for you.
Space Age Insulation concentrates heat back into the
Our Refractory is extremely durable
State of the art high density foil faced ceramic blanket wraps around
the entire firebox, under the hearth, and surrounds the smoke chamber.
This accomplishes two very important things: Supreme safety in the
prevention of heat flow into adjacent combustible structures. This heat
is redirected back into the fire, achieving nearly complete combustion
of wood fuel and maximum radiant heat into your room.
and possesses a large thermal mass
Important factors to consider and compare:
(A) Bellfires® Durability: Industrial grade 70% alumina high temperature
reinforced with stainless steel needles and extra wall thickness makes
our firebox virtually indestructible even for the most abusive
(B) Heat Storage: Our refractory liner stores a tremendous amount of
radiant heat, allowing firebox temperatures to elevate well above the
range of the conventional fireplace. Virtually complete combustion with
no visible smoke emitting from the chimney top are the hallmarks of this
design. The Bellfires® refractory firebox releases its stored up heat
into your living space long after the fire has subsided. These
characteristics rival the performance of a masonry heater.
The Shape is also part of the secret to
thorough combustion of wood
The "Apex" located on the back wall creates a hot spot that radiates
heat back into the fire and out into the room. The "Apex" turns the
Bellfires® into an incinerator and a real home heater.
The wood is
burned to a light ash, creosote is practically eliminated and the
"smelly fireplace syndrome" is also eliminated.
Bellfires® Fireplaces vent on 50% smaller diameter flue size than
conventional fireplaces and that equals 50% less heat loss escaping up
the chimney. Fuel efficiency is increased with more heat from less wood.
