With an increasing emphasis on energy conservation and efficiency, the modern home is becoming a balancing act between competing requirements. Open-fronted fires look best, but are not efficient. Glass-fronted fires are efficient, but tended to look inauthentic. Platonic have developed a new range of gas fires addressed at overcoming these limitations but retaining the style and classical simplicity of their other products. Our aim is to provide energy efficient fires for the 21st century.
A balanced flue fire operates through the use of an enclosed combustion chamber. Combustion air is drawn into the chamber through a concentric flue system that combines inlet and outlet air movement and works on natural draught. The fireplaces are glass fronted, and can be located on external or internal walls as required. Typically, the fires are up to 75% efficient in energy consumption.
Fireplaces remain central to all domestic homes, whether traditional or contemporary, even in this rapidly moving digital age. Pressures on building costs and interior space increasingly squeeze out naturally vented fireplaces, bringing about the need to continuously innovate. Platonic apply state of the art flame effect techniques with electronic LED technology to a select range of their products. The combination of contemporary styling and digital control offers a compelling alternative to a gas fireplace.
Woodburning appliances are carbon-neutral and up to 80% efficient in combustion. They are available as inset glass-fronted units or free-standing stoves. Our contemporary designs will grace any modern interior and provide a stunning focal point of uncompromising style and simplicity.
NB These appliances are not suitable for smokeless zones.
