Enhance your Optimum fireplace with accumulation stones (Optional)
Extended heat distribution
The accumulation stone is not just an optional feature; it's an enhancement that improves the way your fireplace distributes heat. By absorbing and storing the excess heat generated during a fire, it gradually releases it into the room, ensuring a more even and consistent temperature for an extended time. This means less reliance on other heating sources.
The use of accumulation stone can lead to cost savings on your heating bills. With the heat stored in the stone, you can enjoy warmth long after the fire has burned out. With stored heat, less wood is needed.
Removable cold door handle
This is supplied as standard for setting the combustion air supply as well as for the easy opening and closing of the door.
Place the cold door handle in the slot opening next to the door. Then let the handle slide downwards. The handle is now fixed, and the door can be opened. To close the door and remove the handle, reverse these steps.
Fresh air supply
The fresh air supply can be adjusted using the supplied handle. Maximum air supply for combustion is achieved when the slidable handle is moved completely to the right.
It is best to slide the lever completely to the right when lighting the fire. Once the kindling wood is nicely ignited after 10 to 15 minutes, the air regulator can be put back in the middle position.
If the handle is in the middle position, the fireplace burns at nominal heat output. In this position, the combustion and efficiency are best when the chimney is drawing at minimum 12 Pascal.
Moving the handle further to the left reduces the air supply and this decreases the output of the fireplace. When you slide the handle further to the left from the middle position, this reduces the air supply in the fireplace. Once the air supply is in the fully left position, the fire in the fireplace will be extinguished.
On the other hand, the 20mm steel bottom, complete with a cast iron grate and ash pan, offers a distinct set of advantages. The minimalistic steel construction provides durability and strength, ensuring it can withstand high temperatures and the rigors of daily use like the ceramic bottom. The grate and ash pan are thoughtfully designed to facilitate convenient ash removal. This option is ideal for those who favor a more minimalistic fireplace setup combined with effortless maintenance and cleaning.
Flue Pipe Reducer
Metalfire offers the solution for seamlessly adjusting your flue pipe from Ø180mm to Ø150mm. This optional accessory allows you to achieve a perfect fit for your unique installation requirements. Ensure your system is tailored to your needs with this versatile addition.
To obtain optimal combustion, the moisture content of the wood should be no more than 15% If this is not the case, the glass will quickly become soiled and appliance will be less efficient. To achieve this moisture content, the wood must be dried for two to three years in a dry well-ventilated place. The most suitable wood types are beech, oak and birch.
Each of our fireplaces has an optimal wood load: for Optimum models we recommend 25 cm logs. The use of resinous wood types, chipboard, laminate, treated wood or accelerants is strongly discouraged, as it produces sparks and a short burning time. It also harms your fireplace and the environment. Please consult our manual for detailed instructions per type of fireplace.
Responsible wood burning
Wood heating can only be economical, healthy and ecological if it is used in the right conditions! Choice of equipment, choice of wood, feeding the stove, maintenance... With these conditions you can reduce the emission of fine particles and other air pollutants, but also increase the efficiency of your combustion.
Increasing combustion efficiency
Reduce emissions of fine particles and other air pollutants to Improve end-user comfort and environment.
Original | Triangle | Round
Like the 'Original' vertical cast-iron slats, the 'Triangle' and 'Round' versions exude minimalism. The 'Triangle' cast-iron slats represent a more angular approach to the inside of the fireplace, while the 'Round' cast-iron slats - based on a design by Belgian architect Benoit Viaene - are characterised by gentle curves.
The common denominator is the elegant rhythm in both surfaces, which creates an interesting dialogue with the warm light of the fire. The sleek and refined finish of the 'Original', 'Triangle' and 'Round' versions fits perfectly into any interior (in any fireplace) and is also a real eye-catcher, whether the fire is burning or not.
Ceramic concrete look
In our pursuit of offering you the most diverse and adaptable choices, we like to introduce a captivating variant of the Optimum interior finishes. In addition to its exceptional cast iron design, the Optimum is available in' Ceramic' material with a striking concrete look.
Elevate your fireplace aesthetics
The 'Ceramic' material with a concrete look brings a modern, industrial charm to your space, while still maintaining the high-performance features that define that material. This new variant is designed to not only keep you warm and cozy but also to serve as a stylish centerpiece in your home.
Interior finishing colours
Black | Terracotta
Though the Standard 'Black' lacquer already offers the most beautiful timeless base for any fireplace, Metalfire add a new color to their cast iron finishes for closed wood-fires.
As the name predicts, 'Terracotta' is a vivid orange-red lacquer, reminiscent of typical Mediterranean sceneries. A constant reminder of the sunniest of settings and a welcome pop of color during darker days. Whenever, wherever, 'Terracotta' oozes pure warmth and abundance.
Finishing frame | Cold door handle
The standard Metalfire finishing frame is 10 mm thick and is available in lacquered 'Black', 'Terracotta', or 'Maple gold', allowing you to choose a finish that best complements your interior design.
