Esse FG500FG500

This log effect gas stove does not require a flue giving you the freedom to locate it virtually anywhere.

By using the latest catalytic technology all burnt gas emissions are ‘scrubbed’ clean and leave the stove as warm clean air.

In addition to ease of location, catalytic technology also offers 100% efficiency.

No energy is wasted up a chimney, so all the heat generated warms your room which in turn lowers running costs.

A catalytic converter is not only environmentally friendly, but it can actually clean the air it uses. The high temperature catalytic process helps to remove odours in the home and neutralise airborne particles such as dust mites, creating a cleaner, healthier home environment.

The FG500 Flueless offers all the benefits of a popular compact stove with the added flexibility that is only possible using catalytic technology.

Esse 100100 / 100SE

Precision engineered from high grade steel and featuring Esse’s Afterburn™ system, the 100 series offers the presence and clear fire view of the 200 but with a lower output of 5kW thanks to its slim profile. This makes it the perfect choice where hearth depths are limited, or in rooms where there is hearth space for a large stove but where higher heat outputs would overwhelm the room. And like the 200 this multi-fuel stove loves to burn logs.

The 100SE offers all the performance and benefits of the 100 but with the added advantage of being approved to burn wood in Smoke Control areas. Making this an ideal wood burner for urban households.
